I live in a sunny remodeled beach house only 2 blocks, walking distance, from the beach. I have two bedrooms, with a third room that could be converted to an office, playroom, or art space. I have a backyard with space to play and a beautiful oak tree. The front yard is expansive as well, and I am currently working on a small garden in the side yard. Nearby, within eight blocks, there is a small beach town center. Within the town center, there are coffee shops, restaurants, small yoga and surf shops, and little boutiques. On the other side of the main street, there are community gardens and a weekly farmers market. I am also in a school district with highly rated schools. I am out in the beach community often, biking, doing yoga, swimming, and paddle boarding.
Currently, I am renting. In my professional position as director, I am preparing my department for an expansive new grant which will increase my salary when it happens. I share this because it relates to my future goals for my home, I am looking to buy. It may not be a house that is two blocks from the beach, but it will be near the ocean nonetheless, as beach culture has always been an important part of my life.
I live by myself with one sweet kitty. As mentioned in my profile, my twin sister, nephew, younger sister, and mother live within three miles. My yoga community is within two miles from my house, and I have many friends with young children within a couple miles as well.
I cook often and like to have people over to share in the celebration. I cook fresh seafood and love to play with different variations of recipes. My house is full of life.
