I never realized just how nice it was going to be have complete financial freedom. I knew it would be great, but I was unaware of just how liberating it would be. I am actually a published author now, something I have been working at my entire adult life. My first book was a runaway best seller, and that opened up so many possibilities for me. The first thing I did when I got my first check was to look at apartments near Old Town Scottsdale. I had seen these luxury apartments from afar, and I always told myself that one day I would call one of them home for me too.
I have no desire to live in a house. I think apartment living is the best for someone like me, because I don’t want to have to do any maintenance work inside or out. I only needed a one bedroom apartment, so I only looked at those floor plans. I was really impressed with what I saw though. I ended up picking the one I have now because of the balcony. The view that I see every morning is spectacular, and I actually do a lot of my writing out there because it is so peaceful.
When I am not writing, I enjoy using the amenities that are there. Most apartment complexes have a decent pool, but The Stetson has two. There is also a fitness center, a game room with arcade games, social areas, fire pits, pool houses, and so much more. I love watching the people around me, and I have actually had a few ideas for new characters based on some of them. I am finally living my dream, and it is better than I ever could have imagined. I honestly don’t think it can get any better than this.
