Our Niece Holly

Holly, on vacation at Tybee Island, Georgia, with some friends.

Our older niece Holly is entering a new chapter in her life. She's a chemist at a local lab, but has just recently accepted a position with a "major corporation" in the Cleveland area. She spent an entire weekend up there, looking for an apartment, but had no luck. Her second weekend was MUCH better, and she found something that sounds just perfect for her. This coming Sunday is moving day and she starts her new job on Monday.

The biggest concern was finding a SAFE place for her to live. There aren't a whole lot of nice neighborhoods in that area, that are affordable for the non-millionaires. Another priority was finding a place fairly close to her job. She didn't want a half hour commute each way.

She'll be in a gated community, extremely close to a very nice shopping mall. She has two bedrooms, a washer and dryer, a garage, an indoor AND outdoor pool on the grounds...all kind of things that are great about it.

The sad thing is that she'll be leaving the family compound. But that's okay. This is definitely the best thing for her at this time in her life.

Holly is an only child, and it's going to be an adjustment for her parents, not having her within shouting distance, but they know that this is what she needs to do for herself and her future.

Isn't she just beautiful? And she's just as nice and down to earth as she is pretty.

Good luck Holly!
