Time goes by so fast. It feels like it was only yesterday, when I was so stressed out with the renovation and busy packing up to move in to our new place. Yes, it’s been three years of domestic bliss in this place we call home.
I take great pride on the hard work I have put into making this place really feel like home. On a day to day basis, I act like a soldier making sure everything is well kept. I am not taking all the credit though, because it would be unfair to my hubby, who of course made sure and continue to ensure we have enough, so I can get what I want for our home.
F’s previous apartment(his bachelor crib) would have been good enough for the two of us. The only reason we opted to look into getting a bigger place was that, the kitchen of the previous place was too small for someone that really cook. We didn’t have to go far searching. We love the location, wide and tree-lined roadways and spacious open area/property and parks around the neighborhood. We sure do love the fact, that we are just 15 minutes(walking) away from the beach/boardwalk. There’s our development’s gym, doctors offices, a supermarket and a bank right in the property.
We waited four years to get this coop apartment and got approved by the Coop Board. I can’t really ask for more, for nothing can be better than a mortgage-free life(salamat at bayad na). We only pay for the monthly maintenance and that’s something every coop owner or condo owner for that matter can’t escape from.
Starting today, and in the next few, let me take you on a “tour” via pictures, to the place we call home…”my world…our world”.
