Off the beaten path, my “street” is quietest when the neighborhood children are in school. Ours is a small community arranged in a circle and, for the most part, most of my neighbors are nice and helpful. Is it my dream place to live? No. Will we be here forever? NO. My dream street looks far different from this; we want a comfortably sized home with a huge porch where we can sit and relax as we interact with the neighbors as they walk up and down the tree-lined street of a picturesque neighborhood. No bustling city life because I never was a city girl, even being from New Orleans. Where I grew up, it didn’t really “feel” like we were part of a city…and I liked that about it. I prefer living somewhere with a “small town” feel to it.
Will I always remember this house on this itty bitty quiet street? Yes. Why? A few reasons. 1/ It’s been our home since returning to America. 2/ It’s the first home that Chris and I will have together. 3/ It’ll be my granddaughter’s first home.
Great memories have been created here already, but I’ve a feeling that the best is yet to come. ❤
