This one’s mine,
This one is mine.

I’m imagining a woman who has scrimped and saved to buy a house. I hope she’s happy there.
I wrote this thinking of when I bought my own home (way back when, and it was a condo, but still). The feelings expressed are true to life!
That makes it more special!
I remember that feeling of buying my own first home and what an accomplishment it felt like, how it felt like stability.
Yes, the same for me, I bought my condo on my own before I was married and I was thrilled to have my own home. It meant everything to me.
It makes all the difference. (K)
I remember when I bought my condo (on my own before I was married). Those three rooms meant the world to me.
I like the idea that you can still call your home a palace and it really will be – to you!
Yes, to me, my home, since I had my first apartment, has been my palace and refuge. I firmly believe your home is your castle, no matter what style or size it is.
