Some times you have to make decisions in life, right? They can be small decisions or bigger ones, for us just now, they were pretty BIG.
We have been living almost 7 years in
Since last year the economy of this island seems to be going down hill drastically - our accounting numbers are showing that the tourists are not buying as much art as they did before and the prices of everything are going sky high - so, we had to think of alternatives of how to sell our art and make our living in a different way.
Believe me, we have been thinking long and hard and didn’t make quick decisions. Our thoughts have matured over a long period, starting months ago.
One of the main criteria for us was: We just don't want be "stuck" on this rock and not be able to get away at all - like many others we see here already in this situation because of financial reasons. We don't want to have a feeling of just living from day-to-day and be worrying all the time how to pay the horrendous prices to live in a little run-down shack or a room with no space to work.
To make a long story short: we are leaving Key West for good this month and we will be moving up to the mainland of Florida's peninsula. We found a nice little house in a very arty town on the west coast - and we are very excited about starting our life anew there!
I will be not online for some days after the 20th of January while getting ready for the big move. I hope you all will not forget me in the meantime....LOL...and I'm excitedly looking forward to being back here blogging with new inspiration and new photographs about our new living place.
I’ll be back for sure! Will you? :-)
Isn’t this a good way to start a new year?? We are very excited, both hubby and I – so stay tuned please!
