Day 2: If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
We live in an apartment. A 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment with a tiny kitchen and stained carpets. We stay because it fits us (in terms of size, not in terms of the stained carpets) and because the location cannot be beat. We’re in our town’s towntown, where we can stroll to parks, restaurants, coffee, and even the library.
Whenever there is a holiday event or street fair, we can simply walk there. The neighborhood I live in is called “Old Town” and besides our complex, the area is full of cute houses with amazing old trees lining the streets.
If I could, I’d live here forever, but in a house. Where everyone can walk to school and the neighborhoods shut down for block parties. It feels like a movie, or something I hear happening in the mid-west. Here in California, the suburbs can be a little more on the bland side. There is character here.
I’d love to be in the house we could make our “forever” home. Paint and a backyard. Storage enough for tubs of seasonal decorations.
