I'm not sure what I want to do next, get my own place or wait it out a while longer and pay down a lot of things before getting a place entirely on my own. Either way, this list is one of my desires in my future place. Whether it be in two months from now or a year from now. This is what I want.
1- Must be in the South. Virginia, Carolinas or Florida. I love the sunshine & the warm weather.
2- Community must have a pool. Perferably a gorgeous one since I plan to utilize it often.
3- Lots of sunlight. A photographer's obsession is always with natural light. Big windows, lots of windows, whatever gives me a bright and airy home.
4- Decent yard. Obviously Claire needs some grass. I like trees too.
5- Wood floors. I don't care if they are real or lamenent but I love wood floors. They make a space more inviting, more casual, more my personal style. They're always great when messes happen and great with pets. Bonus? I could do yoga in my own apartment. Ya know, when I learn how to and all.
I'm pretty open to options in terms of space, location, etc.
I wouldn't mind a large studio apartment. For whatever reason, the idea of an entirely open living space just sounds lovely. It appeals to my creative side.
