    Question Anyone Live in the Charlotte Area?

    So... the big news of the day is that my husband and I have decided to move to the Charlotte area. I'll have a lot more opportunity for advancement being there (my company is head quartered there) and I think it will be better for our son growing up as well. Of course this means I'll be more like 10 hours from the magic instead of 2 but I can deal with that. The big motivator is the real estate costs being so incredibly low up that way. We're looking at houses in Concord mainly and it's unbelievable how much more house we can get for our budget.

    Anyway, I was just curious if any of my DWT friends make their homes in Charlotte. Would love to catch up with you!

    Ok that'd just be awesome! We'll move as soon as two conditions are met.

    #1 - The inheritence from my grandmother's estate comes in and her house is sold

    #2 - We find a house we want to buy in the Concord area

    That said... the timing looks now like the estate will be closed within a few weeks (took since August when she passed) and it looks like we have an offer on the house. So... rough estimate I'll say we'll be moving in late May/early June.
