We lived in this house for almost 4 years, and today we moved. This is much more than just a house. This is proof that my wife is incredible. I’ll explain. Almost 4 years ago we got the idea to take her small/outdoor Boot Camp and open @fitfactorynashville. The idea is the easy part. Many people get ideas. Few people are willing to make real sacrifices when it gets tough.
We previously lived in a comfortably sized house in a comfortable neighborhood. But, we had no idea if our gym would be successful or not. When I mentioned that we could rent out our comfortable house and use the cash flow to live in this tiny house on a somewhat sketchy street, my wife said, “I’M IN.” She never once complained that it was half the size of our old house. She never once complained that we didn’t have a dishwasher. She never once complained that we had to share a single tiny closet. She never once complained when we traded hardwood and granite for Linoleum and whatever those countertops were :). Don’t get me wrong… This house was a blessing. It’s still so much better than many people have, and it truly/literally brought us closer together.
For almost 4 years she sacrificed so that we could see a dream realized. Today we said our final goodbye to this little house on the sketchy Street. I’m so thankful for my wife, and I’m thankful that we are fortunate enough to move back into our old house… with a walk-in closet 🙂
