Why we picked Carteret County-ten reasons


Figuring out a place to live is perhaps one of the most complex things we do with the exception of finding a partner for our lives.

There are actually some remarkable similarities. While you can visit a place many times or go out on numerous dates with your mate-to-be, you likely will never really know them until you get married.

At a certain point, a leap of faith is involved in choosing a mate or a place to live. You have to gamble that both the facts and your intuition are right. Even after years, you might not know if you have made the right decisions.

Eventually you come to the point of choosing to make lemonade out of any of the lemons you have found in your life or making radical changes.

I am happy to report that I haven't had to make much lemonade either with living in Carteret County or with my soul mate.

When we started looking for a place, we did it together with the knowledge that no place is perfect.

We also began our search with the thought that time is of the essence which means that if we were going to try something new, now was the time.  read more »
