Nuestra Casa Fantástica

I’m thrilled to report that I’m completely settled into my new space!!! I love it, I absolutely love it. I hadn’t realized just how unhappy I was at the other house until I was in this place. I’ve recognized unhappiness but I attributed it to other things besides the place that I lived and honestly I felt like for the most part I was just being a baby about being on my own.

After a year in the old house, and 2 weeks in this apartment, I can say without a doubt that while some of my being overly emotional was from divorce, life transitions, etc…the greatest cause was from where I lived. It was a very small space which prevented me from entertaining and dabbling in my hobbies. And while I wouldn’t go so far as to call it secluded…it was rather private which made me feel very unsafe and vulnerable ( Something I didn’t realize at the time).

My new place is a beautiful one bedroom townhome with an attached garage in a 19 unit complex. It’s quiet, safe, and the neighbors are friendly. It’s very spacious and I’ve entertained several times already. D and I had a fantastic time setting it up…he has a real knack for decorating which I’m so thankful for because it's a skill that I do not have! One thing that I love about the apartment is that we’re building the space together…and while I’m the one who lives here, it is most definitely OUR place.
