From The Good Life


Tim and I both have a love of water! Not the kind you drink, although we love that too but the kind you boat or swim in. When we were first looking for our house in Omaha six years ago, we drove around Riverside Lakes, a great community just on the outskirts of Omaha. We thought it would be a wonderful place to live but it just wasn't in the cards at the time. As it happens, Riverside Lakes is right by our dog kennel and our mechanic. Both of which we visit frequently, the mechanic sometimes too frequently! We'd often drive around the lake and comment on how much we'd like to live there.

A few months ago, we noticed there were several houses for sale. Just for the heck of it, I called on a couple of them, from there I contacted our real estate agent and set up an appointment to tour the houses. Tim was reluctant at first but I convinced him to take a look. After a few weeks of driving around and looking at houses, we decided to put our house on the market. We made an offer on the house at Riverside, they accepted our offer and 9 days later our house sold. The rest is history. Four weeks and way too many boxes later, we're enjoying a beautiful fall in our new home. Today I'm sharing a view from our deck. More pictures to come, as we get a few more of those boxes unpacked and some pictures on the walls.

  5. What a beautiful spot. We spent our life while raising our boys on a lake; great memories; the water is such a peaceful view. We had to downsize when the boys went on their way, but... Enjoy!
    I lost you along the way but I found you again and will enjoy reading your adventures.
