This is the view from the living room and balcony of a 9th floor condominium on South Temple, a street which happens to have been declared to be one of the prettiest streets in America.
We were in the condo because we have a new real estate agent, and because we are flirting with the idea of buying a condo in a high rise building instead of a suburban house.
That three to six minute commute is fantastic! Walking to restaurants and to the park is delightful. Church bells and trolleys, high rises and cityscape fascinate us.
We are having a hard time thinking about living in the suburbs again, and doing the homeowner-ish stuff like trimming and mulching and taking in the trash cans.
Anyway, for now, we think and talk and pray and flirt with the idea of urban living. And we both keep coming to the same thought:
We just don't know what kind of housing we will get in the end.
So we're just going to enjoy living life in the city in an apartment for as long as it lasts.
This is the front of the condo building from the street. It has flowers everywhere, and inside there is an atrium, an indoor swimming pool, workout center, HEATED garage...
Fun to think about living there. But until our house sells, it is just thinking, just for fun.
The views are wonderful above...(my attempt at splicing two pictures together. I need to work on it a little more if I want to create seamless panoramic shots.)
I guess I am just going to have to admit that this is a pretty trashy post
I just thought that the tiger striped trash trucks are pretty interesting too.
Although I would appreciate it if they would stop being so interesting at 6 am on Saturday mornings!
