Today something amazing happened. Actually, two amazing things happened.
The first – I was early for an appointment for possibly the first time in my life.
The second – an unplanned adventure, led me to stumble across the place in which I have now decided to live someday. A place where I never would have expected to end up, but a place that took my breath away nonetheless.
A quiet little place, full of beautiful big houses and perfect green grass. A place filled with birds chirping and an overwhelmingly calm feeling. A place that felt strangely like home. Which, considering I have been down many roads before playfully searching for my dream house, is suprisingly harder to stumble across than you may think.
That ‘perfect house’ from the outside is not always the ‘perfect house’ from the inside and that white picket fence doesn’t always spell out a happy ending. There has to be more to it than that. At the end of the day, a pretty house without that welcoming feeling of warmth is just a pretty house and a pretty house is not what makes a perfect home.
These though, these were not just houses. Even at a quick glance there was something about them that made them homes. Homes in which I would happily live someday.
Granted, all of this might sound a little crazy without the intention of moving out in the near future or more importantly the money or a stable job to back it up and to be honest, I’m probably more talk than anything else. I mean let’s face it, when it comes down to it I would hands down take the cake for being the worlds biggest hipocrit in this subject, because really, as much as I talk about wanting that perfectly beautiful house, I’m that girl who loves living at home way too much to ever leave.
Someday though, someday I’m going to change my mind. Someday, I’m going to wake up on the adult side of the bed and I’ll be all grown up and ready to brave the world. When that day comes, I know just the boy I want braving the world with me.
So someday, if you’re ever out looking for me, just stop by that quiet little place full of beautiful big houses and perfect green grass. The place filled with birds chirping and that overwhelmingly calm feeling. The place that feels strangely like home, because someday that’s exactly where I’ll be.
