"It’s been an exceptionally hard year, but it has also taught me to try and look at the positives, even when it doesn’t seem likely. We’ve almost lost Matt’s dad and dealt with several other life altering events along the way, but our sweet little wild woman always reminds me of the amazing gift of living in the present. With that being said, we are excited to finally announce that we’re trading in lake life for small town living in this next chapter of our lives in Gray! Here’s to hoping it lives up to its nickname of Grayberry because this mama is ready for a slower pace! Let’s be real… Caroline will never slow down haha but one can dream! God is so good even in the darkest of times! Thank you to everyone who has been there with us through this challenging year! We love you so much! Also, we cannot recommend Karen Yarbrough enough for your future real estate needs! We are forever grateful to you!"Happy Customer!
