Your Name: Valerie (DW nickname and real name).
Where is the location of your home? Broad Ripple Village, Indianapolis, IN.
What type of property it is? House.
How many years you’ve lived there? One year, almost exactly!
How many people (and pets) reside there? Two — me and my husband Chris.
What’s your favorite thing about your home? The best thing about the house is by far the location. We’re within walking distance of great restaurants (including three that brew their own beer!), bars and shopping. We’re also very close to some of the bike paths that run through the city. It’s been a lot of fun making a “first home” with my husband.
If you could change one thing about it what would that be? Our kitchen. It’s TINY and we have very little counter space. We also don’t have a dishwasher. We love to cook together, and we love to entertain and have people over to our house. We also love being green, so we always use real dishes. It gets messy in the kitchen very quickly…

Eating Area: We MAY have dedicated the two shelves in the back to booze… We enjoy a glass of wine, craft beer, or a perfectly mixed cocktail on occasion. 🙂
Living Room: My husband and I met in Madison, WI, and you can see some UW touches in this photo. Bucky Badger is on the blanket on the chair in the back, and the three prints on the wall are chairs from the Memorial Union Terrace.
Kitchen: See, TINY!
Bedroom: We don’t have a headboard, so we thought this sweet map of the neighborhoods in Indianapolis would look nice on the wall instead.
