I really like the Henderson apartments where I live. I have lived in other cities and states, and have not really thought that same thing. But here, the buildings really match the desert and everything is so pretty and cordinated. It is very common to see homes and apartments that are painted in colors that match the rocks and sand that surround our area. Beautiful greens, browns, burgandy and even burnt orange. A lot of the place here are made out of stucco too, which is common in places that are surrounded by desert. I love everything about my city actually.
I grew up in a very poor area of a state on the other side of the country. None of the places that were around us looked that pretty. But my mom did her best to make our little place look good. She did not have a lot of money to decorate with, so she would go to yard sales and buy things second hand in order to spruce up our decor. She also liked to make a lot of things, and she even did a really good job with a sewing machine. She would put up curtains, make bed spreads and so much more. It was thanks to her that I really like to look around at my surroundings and feel pleased by them visually.
I love that where I live has a lot of wild animals. It feels so natural to go outside at night and see a wild fox or rabbit moving quickly past my home. We have birds that a lot of other states don’t have as well. I feel like I am at home here. And I don’t think that I will ever want to leave. I love the night stars, the air and everything else.
