Making memories... that is key. I love the little parties we have had here. The memories tied to those parties, to the installation of our French doors, to the pups we brought home from the shelter, to the months spent in recovery from surgery here, to my husband proposing to me here, to the friends that have come over through the years... all of those memories make my house a home.

In addition, I think about all the times people come over and compliment or inquire about this or that in my home. It gives me a new appreciation for my home.

Thanks for sharing this. I feel so blessed that I was able to see it when it was here in the states. I count myself a lucky girl.

I own a condo and I bought it as a single woman. I have thought wistfully that renting would be better because I could pick up and move cities/ locations/ countries easier, but there is something to be said for eventually paying it off. I do have an HOA fee, but the upkeep on a house per year is the equivalent of what I pay in HOA fees (mine include electric and water).

I bought because I was tired of waiting around and because I wanted to know I was building equity. It just kind of made sense to me.

That outdoor space makes me want a larger patio! I am loving those brown curtains separating the bedroom!
