Lots of exciting things are going on in my life right now.
A few months ago, I decided I wanted to move from a house to a patio apartment. There is so much upkeep with a house, not to mention a big yard. I didn’t want to have to worry about upkeep and maintenance.
I have a large privacy-fenced patio where I garden in containers. Which is the main reason I chose this place to move to.
It’s been less than two months, and it’s amazing how much I have gotten done out there. It is like a second living space, more square footage, a place for me to design and have fun.
Also I’m living in less space and loving it. Less space means less cleaning. It means being more judicious with your furnishings and decor. It meant downsizing stuff I really didn’t need or want.
I am lucky enough to have been featured in a national magazine with my former little rental house last month, and this month I’m in another. And while that is a home I’m no longer living in, the magazine features spur me on to see if I can be just as successful with this place.
So life is good. I have my two dogs and they have a yard, albeit a patio yard, with a bit of dirt along the sides. I have someone else to take care of any repairs that should arise. I worry about less bills.
I’m spreading my wings yet again. And flying into a whole new way of living. With less chores and more fun. I’m thriving and blooming where I’ve been planted, and who can ask for more than that?
My motto in life is to always stop and smell the flowers. And pause while doing so to admire all of nature around me.
