It's not what you think. We aren't moving far away. Tomorrow, Andrew and I are moving from Harbor Town to East Memphis. While I am so excited for new beginnings, unpacking, familiarizing myself with a new neighborhood, and more convenient commutes, it is a bittersweet feeling to leave Harbor Town.
My dad bought me a house the summer before law school. I knew the school was moving downtown, and I was excited to become a Harbor Town resident. It has its perks. Everyone runs and/or walks dogs. I had my fair share of physical activity down here, training for two half-marathons. On one of our many walks, soon after I bought Rosalyn, Andrew proposed to me. So, Harbor Town will always have that. Additionally, he moved into my house and we have spent our first two years of marriage here. I will associate this house with various milestones - engagement, marriage, law school, diabetes, etc. I love making memories. Houses will come and go, but the memories travel with us.
I would recommend Harbor Town to anyone - especially students or young married couples. In one area, you have houses, apartments, a park, a boutique, a nail salon, a grocery store, a coffee shop, a pizza parlor, a hair salon, a spa, a doctor's office, etc. The Holts will miss Harbor Town and the perks of living downtown in general. I mean, we have quite the restaurant selection, a great farmer's market, my parents, and THE Memphis Grizzlies. Needless to say, I will still be spending quality time downtown. The time has come to turn the page and write new stories.
