Before I left for Europe, I lived in a charming little apartment overlooking Colonial Lake. It was the first place I ever lived alone, and it was the first place since leaving home that felt like home. It was a dreamy little spot. I knew that once I left, it would be impossible to ever find an apartment quite like it.
For now, I'm glad to have friends who live there and let us have mini staycations when they go out of town. Because I could sit on that porch all day long.
