The sound of birds chirping, I find myself relaxing and sipping a nice cold drink while enjoying the fresh air, outside, on a patio. The feeling is free and easy, I am happily reading a women's magazine in a comfy chair, where the gentle breeze makes me feel cool and inspired. Oh, how I love my life. A wave of gratitude washes over me and then, suddenly...

I'm snapped back to my bedroom where I'm sitting at my desk with the air conditioning on full blast. So I collect my thoughts and continue to write. Listening to Ed Sheeran with my second cup of coffee, I'm feeling very enjoy-ish, so let's roll this out.



During the Raya holidays, we had a great catch up with some friends and I also headed off to a friend's condo to spend some quality time with her. I particularly enjoyed chatting away while lounging in one of their very comfy shaded cabanas with a fruity drink in hand. If I could afford to own a piece of this high-end condo, I think I would use the hotel-like amenities especially pool, Jacuzzi and sauna every day hahaha.



Certainly, there are pros and cons to condo living. I know one complaint of some condo owners is that you can barely do anything with the common areas. No basketball net, no tomatoes, no fun!



Owning a house means that you'll have your own castle where you'll be king or queen. Want to paint your house pink with white polka dots? Just do it! Want to grow plants and vegetables or raise chickens in your backyard (just kidding!)? Then do it! Well, I believe that it really comes down to personal preference, and it is hard to say that one type is better than the other.

I'm currently living in a house that has a grass lawn next to the car porch. Unfortunately, I don't have a green thumb and although I love the idea of a beautiful garden with colorful flowers and something edible, I just can't pull it off. Imagine how much better that would be if you added a professionally landscaped patio to your front yard?

If money were no object, I would consult or hire a professional contractor who can help me transform the little plot of land into a comfy outdoor space for relaxing and entertaining. I'm picturing those columbus ohio patios where I can unwind and have fun. Ah, they are all beautiful and unique. I could be happy dining al fresco or barbecuing with you all and let the good times roll in any of those spaces!

Hmmm, a garden to walk in and immensity to dream in....



What? Imagining, obviously...
