TN Bound! Hello from FL:)

Hello All,

Thrilled to have found this forum and sponging knowledge daily from incredible contributors.

I currently live near Destin Florida with my wife, three girls (13,6,4) and another little girl on the way. Our home went on the market this week and we are TN bound to start our homestead. We are are looking at property in North-Eastern TN due to being closer to family/cheap land/like-minded people and very excited about a change in lifestyle, getting as off the grid as financially possible and living a more self-sustainable life.

Having spent nearly 20 years as a HS art teacher and school principal, I'm currently a showing artist, specializing in ceramic raku jewelry and pottery. I fell in love with the artistic vibe in Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga, thus spawning our decision to relocate to TN. We really wish to raise our children in a simpler/homesteading life and finally made the decision to go for it.

I hope to learn a tremendous amount from this forum, as this is a new venture for us, one that we are committed to succeeded at and steadfast in providing a simpler life for our children.

Have a blessed day and if you'd like to check out some of my work, links are below. I do have a FB and ETSY shop but I have shows throughout the holidays, so my inventory is not currently listed but welcome inquiries or any follows. I look forward to being a member of this community.

Very nice! This is exactly where we are looking. Hoping to drive up this week and see a few properties for sale.

Welcome! I love your work.

We are also transplants from Florida (well, my husband is - but FL was the only other place in the US I ever lived). We are in the very north-eastern corner of TN and absolutely love it here. Our kids are 8 and 6 and it is a wonderful place for them to grow up.
