I know it’s confusing sometimes….it is to me, too.
It looks like a big mansion in this photo. Not quite!
We live in 2 different places. 2 VERY different parts of the country.
To enjoy the gorgeous weather of the mountains of NC, we are spending some time in our condo this summer.
That’s ‘me’ coming out onto the balcony. Our condo is 3 bedrooms on the second floor of a small complex that looks out over the Blue Ridge Mountains to Mt. Pisgah. (our living room has the balcony, 1 bedroom and bath to the right of that with one window, 2 bedrooms and bath on the other side with 2 windows on the front and 1 on the side of one of the bedrooms…lots of light)
A couple of the living room while it was tidied up! lol
And I have a kitchen and even a laundry room.
It’s much smaller than our home in Florida so it’s easier to take care of and simplifies our life while we’re here. And it’s a chance to visit with some of our family and enjoy the mountains we both love.
Hopefully we’ll get in some long hikes (to work off the meals at our favorite restaurants).
It’s a blessing to have 2 homes and I’m thankful for my life.

It’s FUN and challenging and different!
I decided to include Jane’s comment here.
“It looks so very beautiful,Diane.
Do you spend any time in the winter there? How different is the weather from Florida?” Jane x
We lived in this area year round for many years before we bought a house in Florida and retired. We don’t usually come here in the winter months now though. It gets very cold here in the mountains and the average snowfall is 15 inches. We have nice mild weather in the winter months in Florida. (and no snow! lol)
Have you ever visited the mountains of Western North Carolina?
