Just married a few months, we left our hometown, family and friends to move to another state where my husband went to college. We found this little apartment over a garage and rented it. After graduation we moved on once again to another state and now live in a nice home that is paid for : )

40+ years later we were on vacation and went by the apartment to get this photo.

    This is one of the best entries that I have seen for this theme. Well done. One of our first apartments was over the landlord's house.

    Absolutely a winner, Ann. This should be published....it is a marvelous entry. I can relate to living upstairs in a tiny apartment too. It seems then as if you have nowhere to go but up. Your photo describes this situation perfectly. But living in such modest conditions also humbles us and usually makes us very grateful as we "move on up." Great job, my friend!!

    Great entry! That is amazing to see this 40+ years later on your trip..The structure of the building is actually really well built this many years later and well maintained. I love the bike leaned up against the side.

    I et it was fun going back as I know there are memories there. When you have the least, but life was good and fun then.

    Excellent entry, Ann. I love the reflection in the window and the office chair under the mailbox. Fred and I started our marriage living in a travel trailer, because of the amount of moving Fred's job involves. The moving part hasn't chnaged, but housing has improved:)

    Perfection, both the photo and as an entry in the theme. Brought back a few memories here too. First 'home' was a roach infested apartment close to downtown San Diego, CA. A freeway took its place about 30 years ago. Don't miss it one bit either.

    A great story and capture, Ann! We started out in a small mobile home.
