Just for thought....

Lately I have been thinking about downsizing after my kids leave to college.  A lot of old warehouses in the downtown of San Antonio are being converted into lofts and condos.   Years ago I wanted a southwest home, then a ranch home, then a cottage, and now a loft or condo is starting to sound interesting.  I can already see an "Urban-Cowboy" theme coming to Texas.  Condo living has advantages like associations that provides services like maintenance and upkeep.  I want to unclutter my life.  I also want to buy few yet high quality decor and not clutter my house with lots of small trinkets.  Sometimes less is more.  I was at World Market store this weekend and feel in love with their products.  I liked the lofty-cozy appeal of their merchandise.  I can incorporate my love for western ranch in a condo.  Oh well, we will see where I end-up in a couple + years.  For now I can dream, look at magazines for ideas, and search online for inspiration.
