HOME #38


September 1959
Our "FIRST APARTMENT"

We started out in an apartment in an old beautiful home in Blacksburg, Virginia.  MC was starting his Senior Year at Virginia Tech.   I  think it probably had 700 sq.ft......and now after 37 homes later, we have come full circle to our new apartment.....which ironically has 700 sq.ft.!

MC and I moved into our unit in Shell Point over the weekend.  Finally, after living with 30+ boxes in an  apartment since November, we were able to unpack.  I was amazed that we found a place for everything.  In fact, we actually have extra space.

It has been a challenge to go from 2200 sq ft. in our last house to our new home with 700 sq.ft.   I really didn't think it would be possible.   Then  I figured it out... The SECRET....Give Away 4/5 Of One's Possessions To Family And Friends!

We realized that we could live without "things"!!

  We don't have a sofa, not even one!   We had two and we also kept only  half the number of our chairs!

But, the biggest change to my "decor"? .......The Chandelier Queen doesn't have any chandeliers!   NONE

This Post will be of our Great Room and Kitchen......Our home is  OPEN CONCEPT !!!
MC ordered book cases to house his MC Little People.  When they arrive they will go in our bedroom.   I will share that room when they are in and the room looks finished.

So Dear Friends....here goes.....  HALF OF THE 700 SQ.FT.
