Here it is – the closest you can get to a castle in my town, at least in my opinion! And I tell you – this opportunity did not come and knock on my door! (more about my process here). It’s not like I own this building now, ha ha, but some days I will pretend I do. I will rent here for many years, and the apartment is formed as a “L” on the second floor. The top balcony will be mine, and if you start counting windows, from the window left of the balcony, you will see nine big beautiful windows that will let the light flow in my New Villa Betula.
It’s actually quite big, though it is less than half of what I’m used to now. I’ve never lived in an apartment, never in a town, and never without a garden nor a car. This will be so different! Interesting that I choose to change it all up totally when I was not able to keep our house on my own…
I have a lot to say about the apartment, that are to be renovated before I move in this summer. I will not start to write about it now, because it will make it impossible to stop! Something else that is a little interesting, is that the same person has rented here for thirty years, wow, maybe I’m next to grow old in here?!
Far from the best photos I’ve taken, but they’re from my first (and so far only) time in here, together with the landlord. I had to take it all in with my heart and soul, and combining that with a camera I find difficult sometimes. Adrenalin kicking, overwhelming feelings and so many questions at once. I can tell you this is not a typical rental apartment in this town (or country for that matter), and I feel blessed.
A tower!! Maybe I will host some kind of a brunch club or something in the tower, what do you think? “Sign up for next weeks tower brunch with dream achieving as a topic”, does that sounds cool and interesting? I want to reach out to more local people, I want to meet you! And I want readers from abroad to book a plane and drop by too 😉
And all of a sudden I started to dream about having the top floor too, and use it as a very tiny “hotel” for people I trust and want to meet and great… Workshops, retreats… Workspace for a week or two for those who need some new input, peace and calm… But that might be in another life… Because that part is not only about dreaming, there’s also some economy involved, I’m afraid. But do we meet for brunch in the tower?
PS. just realized how super excited this post sounds, and I am excited to find a nice place and it will decrease my stress a lot. But I also cry every day, and this is not all about a great new start. It’s rough. Not like I have to excuse myself being excited, but… I just did, because there’s so much more to it..
And in the middle of the night I was thinking of this post, this perfect and beautiful sentence to sum it all up. But like a dream it disappeared out in the air this morning, and is nowhere to be found…
Did I mention I will get the key on Monday though I can’t move in before it’s summertime?! Will take more photos and hang out there a lot… Alone in peace and quiet, taking it all in and start making plans… Bringing some coffee, my camera and my Mac. Wish you a soft and kind weekend, take care.
