Pretty little house
Our lease at the place we're renting now will be up in the late spring, and I've been thinking about where to live next. I will be living here by myself, now, just me and Jack. Chris will return to Los Angeles to teach.
So I will be downsizing for my next home. I've been looking and I think I've found a good place. It's in my neighborhood - just around the corner from our current place. It's a good block, safe and beautiful and near the park where I like to walk Jack.
It's a half a shotgun double, a little cottage. It's freshly renovated, and it has a nice backyard for Jack. I'm hoping this will come through. We're getting into the paperwork and legal stuff right now, and we'll see how it goes.
I was talking to a friend about my decision, and she listened patiently to my listing of the pros and cons. Then she said, "Does it feel like home?"
Pretty little house!
