Before I bought my condo, I lived in a walk out basement apartment for 11 years. I didn’t really mind it, aside from all leaks ending up in my space (that happened twice…ok, maybe 3 times).
The first time I saw this space on my house hunt, I honestly couldn’t see living on the top floor. Not sure what it was, but it felt weird to me. Now I can’t imagine not living on the top floor. The best part is the massive tree outside. Once it is fully in bloom, when I look outside it feels like I’m in a tree house.
Have you ever spent time in a tree house? I never had one growing up!
My grandfather was my favorite person in the world. There are about a zillion pictures of us like this:
Who was your favorite person when you were young?
Happy Earth Day!
Saw my first one of these today:
It’s definitely spring. 🙂
Given how much I talk about my dogs, this shouldn’t be a surprise. 🙂
This was taken the first year I had Hank, with my old school SLR. He was running around like crazy and would stop for a second, then take off again. That must have gone on for an hour, until he fell asleep. It made me laugh so hard.
I have super sensitive skin…I can’t wear makeup, sunscreen, or any fragrance. For better or worse, I usually end up smelling like outdoors or something I have eaten. Today, I smell like rain. This was the sun after the monsoon I got caught in. 🙂
What is your favorite scent?
Ok, so I totally cheated and did not take this picture today. However, this is my favorite picture of where I live. I took this picture the day I signed the papers for my new home, my first home. I worked 3 jobs for almost 4 years, paid off debt and saved a down payment, and these keys are the result of so much hard work. Tangible evidence of what I can do when I set my mind to it.
It’s a nice reminder as I set off on another journey…one that will require sustained focus on my goal, i.e. paying off my final student loan and ultimately my mortgage.
I used to be a big dessert person…I’m more into fruit now, but I still have my go-to treats on occasion. My all-time favorite treat is a handful of vegan chocolate chips and a spoonful of natural peanut butter, stir and microwave for about 30 seconds. My second is this:
I only get it about twice a year, so as to savor every single bite. I let it get nice and soft, and the chocolate/peanut butter combination just explodes across my tastebuds. So amazing!
What is your favorite sweet treat?
