It’s happening. Mr. Lovely and I are getting itchy for a new place. This always happens! We’ve been so fortunate to always find great little apartments that are just perfect for us, and our place now is no exception. We’ve got enough space, a little patio that is filled with plants, big windows with lots of light, and a granite countertop in our kitchen. It’s fine. But I just can’t stop wishing we were in a house.
Are you an apartment dweller? Condo? Big ol’ house with a front porch? Wherever you are, are you happy with it? It’s kind of hard to live in an apartment and look at friends who live in full houses and not be jealous. I just sigh every time I think of having a whole extra bedroom for guests, or an office space that isn’t in our living room, or a backyard to invite friends over and barbeque. Sigh. See? Even typing those sentences I get this vision in my head of the perfect little house on the perfect little street and I look around my apartment and kind of harumph. I shouldn’t be so ungrateful.
So what is in your head when you picture the perfect living space? I have this vision of an airy, white, bright house with lots of windows, and a room just for me and Mr. Lovely to work in. Lots of cool nooks and crannies and space for the treasures we’ve collected while we travel. Room for everybody to come and stay the night or have a party. And call me crazy, but I think it would almost be fun to have kind of a fixer-upper so that we could get our hands dirty and make it our own. But there’s also the very real restrictions that finances put on a situation, and looking at housing prices is totally insane.
I’d love to know about your digs, and if you dream of being somewhere different! Do you find that your living space affects your relationship? Do you love where you live? xoxo
