It’s been surprising to see the reaction from my surroundings. For many people, letting go of their car is unthinkable. It would also have been unthinkable to me a year ago. But after I’ve experienced all the benefits of walking, I feel so good about my decision. I’ve had many beautiful walks throughout the past eight months. I walk about 100 km a month, and I’m lucky to live in a city with inspiring shops, funky architecture, a lovely coastline, and the woods all within walking distance, so I can always find a beautiful route.
#2: I changed my diet
#3: I bought my dream home
I thought I would live in my current home forever until my husband and I spotted a beautiful old, yellow house with dark green windows. Like a happy, golden sun in the middle of our city, it made us fall in love with its history, architecture, and quirky details. The house is old, built in 1909 for an architectural exhibition.
As I’m writing this, the house is going through the last phase of the renovation. It’s completely restored with new heating system, new electricity, new roof, ceilings, walls, floors, bathrooms, doors, and windows. I cannot believe we are moving in just one week! I’m a bit stressed and overwhelmed but also incredibly excited.
Selling a home, buying a new home, and renovating a historic house is truly time demanding. The amount of work we have had to put into this project has been crazy. We have renovated many homes before, but this has been our biggest design project ever. I will for sure look forward to getting a bit of rest on the other side of us moving in. What I’m most excited about is to enjoy the garden this Summer, work in my new studio and host my future photography workshops in this beautiful place.
#4: I have organized ALL my things
