Urban living empty nesters
The Zillow blog has a post from Sabra Davis who writes about her experiences recently downsizing from a 3,200 square foot home and three cars to a 1,200 square foot apartment in Belltown:
Spontaneity has become a big part of our lives now. We see movies, baseball games, and go to the theatre, concerts and museums without planning ahead since they are all within easy reach. We often stroll to our local park, where there’s almost always some sort of event or concert going on. An added bonus to all of this activity is that we are healthier and stronger than we’ve been in years.
A lot of what she writes about are the same things that excite me about living downtown. However, I still own a car (though it’s barely functioning) in order to get to hockey twice a week (we play in Renton, Kent, Everett and Kirkland.)
