My New Home

dream house

You know how they say you have to visualize to make your dreams come true? Well this is one of my dreams. I have never entered a contest so many times in my life, but this year’s HGTV Dream House is right up my ally. I’ve always wanted to go to the Cape, and what better way to get there?

Some of the design elements are of course overly designed for my taste. The stripes in the kids room for example, are a bit much, but I love the color of the beds. I figure I could sell off a lot of the things I don’t like and that might buy me another year’s worth of property taxes. After that I’ll sell it and put my money into a smaller home I might actually be able to afford.

I love the idea of writing a great novel on the Cape though. It just has a great feel to it!

  2. Good luck! As much as I miss living on the Cape, I definitely wouldn’t want to live on either of the islands. One of my roommates fresh out of college grew up on the Vineyard, and I can’t tell you how many times I had to drive down from Boston to pick him up because the ferry wasn’t running or in the reverse, dropped him off then had to go back to scoop him up again. When the weather is bad, you risk getting stuck on one side or the other. There’s nothing like falling asleep at night to the sound of the ocean though!! Miss it! 😦
