Meet Pinky

I wanted to write a much longer post, but I think that this photo and a little narrative would sufficiently explain my successful project. I have to say that the experience and the process was quite challenging and very stressful,  but in the end, absolutely rewarding. More than a year after I wrote my bucket list, I actually made part of number four into a reality. Until today, I still couldn't believe I'm finally the owner of a house I referred to as 'pinky.'
I met 'pinky' about three months ago, and it caught my eye because of it's workable size and the beautiful view from the living room, which I'll take a photo of at a later time. I referred to this house 'pinky' because there's a part of the house that's painted pink. Also, at that time, I was visiting so many houses and this house really stood out in my mind because of that striking pink color. From then on, I fought and stressed to make 'pinky' my home. So when I stated that I won't be home for Christmas, it was a misstatement because I will be in my own home for the holidays. Although I will stress that I will miss Hawaii this year.

Next month, I will be moving to my house, and since I have started to pack my belongings, I can't help but think how I'll miss my apartment (photos below) which has been my home for the passed two years. This apartment has seen one of the worse experiences in my life, the break-up, but it also laid witness to how I stood up, moved on, and succeeded. I will definitely miss this apartment.

Lastly, dreams absolutely do come true no matter what!

  12. Way to go, sis! So happy for you! Wow, so you have a bucket list. :) I considered writing one myself after I saw the movie, but I have yet to get to it.

    Hubby and I are buying a log cabin atop a hill of guavas ourselves, and I can't wait to move into it. But it won't be mine until February yet, so... (fingers drumming..) :)

  19. nothing beats that Kayni! i'm so happy for you and Pinky looks sweet and lovely! simple, small, cozy and manageable..

    but how do you do this kind of thing in america? do you pay by installment? or did you pay full? or the thing they call mortgage?

    pls enlighten me in my ignorance :-)

  20. Vitchie,

    Yes, it is paid through a loan - mortgage payments. Pinky is located in the countryside of Maryland. I've decided that city life isn't for me. I love the quiet country - like what we're used to in the Cordilleras.

  21. hi Kayni! sorry, i thought i left a comment here already,kkk...

    congratulations! your house is so cool... Alex and I have been contemplating a lot. I love the countryside. should we transfer to a new house, i want it to be away from the noise and buzz of the city. i grew up in La trinidad and acted like we owned it until the rapid but not good looking developments sprung up. but in spite of it all, i still love LT. i love the fact that i can go to the city and can still return to our quiet place after a very busy day...

    i have an uncle and an aunt with their families in Maryland... i just don't know their exact locations...
