Homes are a mirror. So where we live changes. We paint a room, we take down or build a wall. We put in a kitchen or bath, or add a room, finish an attic.
But it can be more. Whole locations change. Whole approaches to life change. Life cycles make house cycles. Couples make a new place together. Families have children and need new space. Relationships end, and a new place must be found. Our children leave, we leave the Family Home for the After Kids Home – downsizing/deaccessioning, change. When a partner dies, the remaining spouse must confront life alone.
Talking to HOME PAGE today are 3 women in the new realities of home. Chion Wolf is heard everyday on WNPR, but has just created a new life with her partner Emily Petersen. Cori SaNoriega just moved into her new home, a Full Family Home, with 3 young daughters and her husband Adam Farstrup. Meg Botteon, an editor at Oxford Press has left a house in New Jersey for an apartment in New Haven to be with Richard Mammana in a place to start a life together.
