I've been to Phoenix three times before--each time in Spring. Once was with Ken for a trip he'd earned through work. Another time was with the kids to see the Grand Canyon. The third time I tagged along while Ken had meetings. Each time we were able to visit with family. I discovered that I love the desert! I would not care to live there full time, however. I need my rolling hills, four seasons, and more green than brown.
I've often thought it would be fun to be able to live in a different place for each season. I'd explore the surrounding States, thoroughly. Each house would be totally different from the others so that I could decorate them according to their style. Here is how I envision it:
Winter: Log cabin with a large, cozy fireplace in the Rocky Mountains overlooking a quiet valley
Spring: 19th century Townhouse in a historical city in the Southeast like Charleston, SC
Summer: Seaside Cottage in New England
Autumn: Adobe house with a center courtyard in northern New Mexico
Now that I have grandchildren, though, I wouldn't want to live so far away. And at my age I don't need MORE houses to look after! Instead, I think I'll just plan a week's vacation in each of these spots.
What about you? If money, kids, grandkids, or anything else was not a factor, would you stay where you are or would you like to live elsewhere? Would you be like me and want a different house for each season?
