My wife and I wanted a clean place to live in Florida. We wanted an apartment with a pool. A nice one too. Not one of those tiny little ones they put in just to say they have a pool at an apartment complex. When we were looking for apartments in Jacksonville Florida, we found Sundance Pointe Apartments. We went and checked them out on a recent trip down to Florida. We have relatives about an hour away in Gainesville. We wanted to be in Jacksonville closer to the airport. We are keeping our home up north, and we are going to rent an apartment year round in Florida. It is the only way we can afford to have a winter home.
I am ready to move permanently to Florida. My wife wants to stay close to other family up north. I can understand that. All of my relatives are gone or living far away. I will move anywhere my wife desires to live. Of course, I might not be too keen on moving somewhere that has even colder winters. However, we are both on the same page with that anyway. Neither of us enjoy the cold anymore, and snow and ice on the roads is another issue.
