I wanted to take a moment to share a feeling I have about my urban loft home in downtown San Diego. We have lived down here for almost two years and let me tell you- the experience has been surreal! We would always watch people on t.v. and in the movies enjoying this lifestyle that was so attractive. Walking out of your urban, downtown building and going across the street to a fun local restaraunt/bar. Strolling a couple blocks to see live, local acoustic musicians that are also neighbors. Having everything you need within a four block walk. Cafes, eateries, coffee houses and boutique shops you will find nowhere else. Filling up the gas tank every couple of weeks as opposed to twice a week. Intercommunity get-togethers hosted in a neighbors’ stylish loft or in a well appointed community gathering area. Imagine all that… and I realized that that has been and IS our life! It makes me feel a little sorry for the people that bought down here and never decided to move here because they didn’t believe in what downtown is becoming. That just rented their place out or are trying to flip it. It is definitely a great opportunity missed. Even to experience it for a couple of years will leave a lifetime of memories to look fondly upon. I have watched new families develop and grow including my own. Not a day goes by that I don’t stop to pinch myself, to make sure I am not dreaming. This is my downtown home. It could be yours.
