The Biggest Move I Ever Made

my houseI was born in Charlotte, NC and lived there all my life until late 2005.  In 2004, after the death of my husband, following a long bout with dementia, my daughter Carol decided to build a home for me on her wooded property in the country between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro.  It was finished in September, 2005 and I made the move there.

While living in Charlotte, I saw it grow from about 100,000 population almost one million.  I have enjoyed being away from the stress of living in a BIG city, and the relaxed atmosphere here has probably added years to my life.  I wouldn’t ever want to move back!  I live in a great log house on one 5 acres of her property, and she lives on the other 5 acres.  She lives alone, also, after the death of her husband, but we see each other daily, and eat one meal, usually dinner together at my house.  I love living in this stress-free environment!   This is a painting I did of my “cabin in the woods”, complete with deer who visit everyday!
