a house


we are lucky to have some close friends with beautiful houses. (this is todays view out of one.)
i never really thought that we needed one too.
but since we gave up the summerhouse at the lake this thought is getting bigger and bigger. It is growing very fast, like a very well fed monster.
we have a huge apartment, cheap and in the middle of berlin but i started dreaming about a house, a garden, a terrace at least.
we even considered lately moving to the outskirts of berlin but we both need to be in the city for our daily work, it would have brought a lot of time consuming travelling so i tried to forget my dream.

but yesterday, Lou was invited at a schoolmates birthdayparty, her sweet friend and his family living in a (big) house in a backyard with a garden and two terraces, in the middle of the city.
i was shocked, there it was, a version of my possible dreamhouse, inhabited by the most likeable family i've met since a long time, rebuilt with a lot of effort and taste.
i have to confess i felt real envy, the first time in my life, but it was gone soon and i was happy for that because i always condemned enviousness.
we have to take our time and patience to find out what it may be we would consider the right home for the three of us at this time, a house, a garden, another appartment or whatever, there are still many different ideas in our small family and we are so bad with planning...

I couldn't imagine to leave in an appartement again. Go for the house! at least some place with outside space whatsoever. Everything is possible! lots of love!

your description sounds not imaginable as you might have seen already a lot of berlin homes and nevertheles you have got surprised; in the middle of the city? I am curious about the place; I have my door open constantly nowadays, and in case it is not possible to have a house, a flat with a direct entrane to outside, a garden, a green courtyard, might bring some good change;
