As many of you know, in April I moved from Bonita Springs, FL to Austin, TX. I spent many wonderful years in Austin during the 1980s. Not only did I start my 33-year career with Farmers Insurance in Austin, I was also membership chairman of the Austin Chapter of the Sierra Club, worked on political campaigns, visited with my parents, and took many wonderful day trips around the Texas Hill Country with friends and family.
Fast forward to 2021. I’ve got a beautiful view from my balcony to inspire my writing. As life changes with more people being vaccinated, I’m super excited to start a new life in this magnificent city. How can things not be wonderful with sunsets like this in my backyard?

2020 impacted everyone around the world. It caused many of us to reflect on our lives and think about what was important. I loved living in Florida and met many wonderful people, but my heart was in Austin, Texas. Two of my four best friends live in Austin, I was membership chairman of the Sierra Club when I lived there, and I started my 33-year career with Farmers Insurance there. I made the decision in the 4th quarter of last year to move to Austin in the April-June 2021 timeframe.
My life has been crazy starting in February as I prepared to sell the house through April when I moved to Austin. It took a lot of work to stage the condo to place it on the market. All the work was worth it since the condo sold over a single weekend. Then preparing to pack everything I owned and throw out lots of materials I wasn’t taking with me. I donated items to The Goodwill and St. Matthew’s House, reducing what I would bring along with me. Bear Junk Haulers took the larger items that I couldn’t lug to the dumpster.
My tennis friends got together to give me a proper send off at one of my friend’s huge lanai. It went against CDC rules, but we all have been playing tennis together throughout the pandemic. As I said, I leave behind a wonderful group of ladies!!!
Over election week in November 2020, I drove to Austin to check out different apartment complexes. I decided to rent in the beginning since I’d be dealing with a seller’s market and didn’t know if I wanted to deal with homeownership again.
I found a complex with 3-bedroom standalone townhouse rentals. Perfect!!! I selected a unit with an amazing view of the Texas Hill Country. My balcony faces west and I’ve witnessed some amazing sunsets.
Hopefully, my writing muse has followed me to Austin.
I’ll be attending 2 conferences in 2021.
