Moving to a Warmer Climate

When I was younger, the cold weather in Pennsylvania never bothered me. In fact, I thrived on it since it meant that friends and I could go out and have some winter fun in it. As I got older though, the cold definitely lost its appeal to me. When my boss asked me if I would like to transfer to the Florida office, it took me all of two seconds to agree to his proposition. I started looking at different apartments for rent in Jacksonville FL that same night, thanks to the wonders of the Internet.

I was able to find quite a few nice places that are close to the Florida office. I have been there for a few days at a time when they needed my expertise there, and I got to know the area a little bit from that. I knew the general area that I wanted to live in, and that is how I found Heron Walk apartments. I used an online map to determine how far away from the office the complex is, and it is actually within walking distance. I talked to my boss again the following day to make sure this was really going to happen, because I was ready to get away from cold weather for good.

He told me to go ahead and apply for the apartment that I wanted, and he even told me the company would handle the moving expenses of getting my furniture there. It is still hard to believe that one day, I am freezing cold in Pennsylvania, and just a month later, I am living it up in Jacksonville. That is how quick it was for me to get the apartment in my name and have my furniture moved into it. I never could have imagined this, but I am so thankful that it happened!
