Our trip from Palmdale to Santa Cruz was pleasant mostly because we were driving toward a new promising future for our little family. Santa Cruz is so beautiful and there is so much diversity here.
Family housing at UCSC is fabulous! They really seem to care about their students happiness and comfort as well as making things aesthetically beautiful.
I searched for months to find some sort of photo of UCSC family housing as came up with nothing so I really hope that these pictures will help any future family housing students with their overflowing curiosity.
The Front Door and Patio
I LOVE the blue door. I read somewhere that a blue front door invites happiness and fertility into one's home. The dirt area next to the door is available for planting when time permits me.
The Flowers Next to My door. There is also a large honeysuckle bush that is heavenly even with all the flowers dead so I cannot imagine the fragrance next spring. The bright pink flowers really are that color!
The floors are ugly downstairs but everything is very clean.
The Bedrooms -Tiny in my taste, but I had huge rooms all to myself when I was young.
Pumpkins Playroom- As soon as we get settled I am going to start to work on making her room special for her.
This is our room, which needs a lot more work to make it the comforting hideaway I would like. The carpet is ugly office carpeting but it looks very easy to clean. On the plus side the window spans the entire length of the bedroom. This photo shows less then half of the window!
I wont bother with a photo of the bathroom but it is big, much bigger then our last bathroom and with a huge tub. It could use more storage space though. That is something to think about for Apartment Therapy in October.
Isn't it beautiful! I forgot to take pics of the ceiling, but it is all wood beams like a ski chalet with high ceilings.
The View out the kitchen window- On a clear day all those clouds are gone and you can see the ocean. The community garden is between those two buildings in the photo and today I am going to go pick out a plot for our veggies. I have never planted a vegetable garden before and I am excited to learn how.
See that purple bag laying on the ironing board. Its my newest project, it just needs the top-stitching and maybe some Velcro. The snaps I used didn't work out like I had planned but I have some different ones in mind that I might try.
More coming soon...
