I don't have much time, but I'm determined to write so I'm going with the prompt of the day:
"If you could live anywhere, where would it be?"
I like this prompt and its actually relevant to me because we short saled our house this year and are currently living in a rental. Not that there's anything wrong with renting, but the circumstances under which we find ourselves here are less than satisfactory. And while I really like the house we are renting and I enjoy the neighborhood so far, this is not where we want to live forever.
So I have three answers.
#1 Where I ACTUALLY want to live (and can afford buy) when our credit recovers and we can buy again: Benicia. Or Martinez. But the hubs says no to Benicia - he doesn't want to cross two bridges to get to work,which I totally understand. So it will probably (hopefully) be Martinez. Its a nice little town.
#2 Where I would live in my real life, if we had tons of money: Probably still Martinez. Just in a nicer, bigger house with land. Or maybe Lafayette or Orinda. If we had lots of money I would definitely want a house with a little bit of land for a huge garden and some chickens.
#3 My fantasy/dream answer: Somewhere in Europe. Probably in France. I'd have a house in the Provincial countryside and an apartment in Paris. And eat good food and drink wine and see beautiful buildings and art all the time and be just a train ride away from so many amazing places.
I pray that #1 comes to pass. If win the lottery, it'll be #2. If I win some crazy multi-state, biggest jackpot in history lottery, I'll add on #3.
