Where's Home to You?

Pronunciation: \ˈhōm\
Function: noun
one's place of residence : a familiar or usual setting : congenial environment; also : the focus of one's domestic attention

So... to make a long (stressful, sleepless nights, anxiety-ridden) story short. The home Jeff and I thought we wanted, we decided we no longer wanted. So, we're homeless. (Okay, not at all. We're currently living with my sister and husband in their beautiful home. Feels more like a retreat, really.)

But, we're literally all over the map when it comes to deciding where we should plant our roots for the next couple of years (could be 5-10 years, really).

And, I've been thinking, isn't the blogging community such a wonderful place to reach out to? Absolutely.

So, with that said, I'd love to hear (if you dare tell):
  • Do you like/love/hate your neighborhood?
  • Where do you live?
  • Would you want me to be your neighbor? (I bake good cookies!)
  • Are there any homes for sale in your neighborhood?

Granted, this is all relative to so many different elements. But, I am curious where people call home and love to live.

If you dare share any of these thoughts, please either leave a comment or email me at,

laceyjpappas (at) gmail (dot) com.

I'd truly appreciate it! It may just help make this never-ending, house-hunting a bit easier to navigate.

We LOVE our neighborhood - but I'm a city girl. We're 15 minutes from anywhere. And we'd love you for a neighbor, I already told you the house next door is for sale. East-side SLC is really cool!

i would love to have you as a neighbor!!! :)

i live in manhattan, in the west village. i love my neighborhood for its charm, energy and cupcakes. i don't like the neverending slow-walking tour groups. there are some homes for sale but they are super pricy. (we rent.)

if i had to move anywhere, though, i would choose portland, i think. people seem obsessed w/it there.

uh, duh....hilo, hawaii.

Really though, I wish I could be more help Lacey. Good Luck. I'm sure you'll find the best place in SLC.

Portland really is the best, and yes people are very conceited and obsessive about their city here. I live right downtown, walking distance to everything. We have great public transportation. And, if you are looking for a great music scene..we've got a great one! I used to live in Utah though and I have to say that I really miss the sunshine!!
