I read about this book on a home design blog. I ordered it because it seemed that the author and I were exactly alike. She really did think that the secret to a good life could be found in a perfect house. Unlike me, though, instead of just browsing the listings (DAILY), she actually rented, then moved somewhere else; rented again, then again, then bought something, then sold it, then bought something else. It was almost exhausting to read of her shennanigans, but I'm sure reading it was much easier than living it. Once again I am reminded that you bloom where you are planted. The next time I covet someone else's house, I will remind myself to buy some paint and tape a design on the wall and be grateful for what I have. Home is what you make it, wherever you find it, and the people in it are really all that counts. Good read, though.

Witty read. Reminds me of my own thought processes when it comes to houses & decorating & a final realization of how frivolous material things are.
