After months of planning and careful consideration, our big move back to the US has arrived. We bought a house in Frisco, Texas. A lot of people asked why Frisco? We’ve traveled around the world and lived in many different places. We made Montreal our home out of necessity, not desire, and we wanted to consciously choose the best place for us as a family. Frisco is constantly rated one of the best places in the US to live for families with top schools in the country. Couple that with more than 250 days a year of sunshine and a remarkable cost of living and Frisco kept coming up on the top of our list. Our daily life has already been greatly enhanced in Frisco with easy access to entertainment, theater, arts, sports, and dining. Our beautiful home is large enough to host guests and the backyard is the private oasis of my dreams. There is an international airport 30 minutes away and there are endless road trip opportunities. We’re loving the transition.
When we arrived at the house, I couldn’t believe how beautiful it is. Would you believe we bought the house sight unseen? We did Skype with the realtor before purchasing but we’d never actually set foot in the home until it was ours.
Inside, the kitchen island is better than my wildest dreams. Within a week of moving in, we already hosted family and friends, celebrating the heat in Texas around the island and at the pool.
The master bathroom looks like a magazine ad and our walk-in closet is the size of a bedroom. I still can’t believe it’s our home. I wake up daily with a new appreciation for the house and the community.
Athena’s bedroom is absolutely adorable with plenty of room to grow and there is an entire loft area as a dedicated playroom.
The pool and the backyard are really what sold us on the house. We’d always dreamed of having our own pool with a hot tub and plenty of space for hosting guests.
Our Frisco journey has only just begun. And… I’m here on a fiancee visa so we will be getting married within 90 days. Lots to come.
