People on the ship always asked me “where are you from?” which was just a little bit less difficult to answer than “where’s home?” Because where is it? on the ship? At my parents’? The Guns’? Where Bravo is? where our stuff is?
this really could turn into an entirely different post. must refrain.
But not having a home for a certain amount of time is really a blessing. Most people pick a home because they have to, because they need it right away. Because you need a space for your stuff. Because you don’t want to catch cold. because that’s the only way to live. But we have some time to think about what type of home we want when we need one again, where it will be, and what it will look like.
And these are just some ideas I have.
Home idea number one:
big, open rooms. a kitchen with an island in the middle of it, and one of those grids that hangs pots and pans. hardwood floors. a wall of french doors on the main floor that open into a landscaped backyard (I don’t know who’s taking care of it). A reading nook/ window seat somewhere. And a space over the garage to turn into a dance studio. Design colors: white, chocolate, and robin egg blue.
You know, something like this:
Home idea number two:
Loft style condo in the city. cement floors. floor to ceiling windows. unexpected colors. an odd staircase. a brick wall. a bed enclosed by a curtain.
Where do you want to live?
