Really. A friend pointed this out and gosh darn it, it's true.
I've always been apartment bound.
I grew up in NYC. I am Eloise, only, not quite at all. My growing up apartment, where my mom still lives, is a rented two bedroom - about 1300 square feet. It's on the fifteenth floor.
Here, today, at the new house I stepped out ONE step and was outside. It was so nice out that I stepped back in, grabbed my phone, my keys, my water and my kids and went to the playground. I was there in less than 5 minutes.
I didn't even bring my purse.
No wallet, no snacks. This is awesome.
Houses are cool.
Not driving is cool. So far so good.
