i have homes on the brain, you guys. remember when i mentioned i was all stressed in this post earlier this week? i believe a big part of the stressin’ has to do with not knowing where i’m going to live when my lease is up in june. i know june is still a good amount of time away, but i’m a planner, you know?
i’ve been scouring the internet for awesome apartments and condos in the kansas city area and have also been known to do the occasional (creepy) drive-by. i have friends in almost every area of the city as well as the suburbs, but i have grown to love the city so much that i can’t see parting with it any time soon.
one thing i know for sure is this time around i am going to have a list of wants. i came into my current lease with no real idea of what to look for in a home. i was just happy to have a space to call my own. and to tell you the truth, this apartment has been really good to me. but i’m ready for some hardwood floors and a boatload of natural light. i’m also going to invest in great vintage pieces that give my new space a little more character. i’ve also made a promise with myself that i will learn how to take care of a plant or two and keep them alive. *promise*
what are some of the things you look for when shopping for a new place? do you buy or rent? any of you kansas city ladies and gents know of any fabulous places i should be looking at?
