Yesterday was our first visit to J and D since we met at their then-under-construction house three years ago.
Their house is now completely done and elegantly furnished. It overlooks a beautiful lake with gorges lake views. My wife and I love it.
We chatted on different things but their focus seemed more on a possible early-retirement for me and an option we then move into their neighborhood, a small and quiet town named Lakefield. We even had a guided (of course by both J and D) tour in the town and saw some properties for sale.
By and large, I have no objection to this option of moving. Almost certainly a financial freedom will be granted to us and an early retirement becomes practically possible for both of us, if I sell our houses in the York Region and move over to Lakefield. Not to mention I can get much relaxed in the clean and fresh air in that small town.
However, my wife is very reluctant to live in a town like Lakefield which is a bit too far away from the GTA, worrying if our kids would be able to come and visit us as often in the future.
Anyhow, it is still too early to make a decision as we will have to wait till Jonathan our younger son gets into a University next summer.
But by all means, we had a good time with J and D. And the trip home was very smooth as well. A great day.
We’ve promised J and D to see them more often.
