When I was little, moving to Las Vegas from New Jersey was a big change. Many of these changes include, leaving family, making new friends, and getting used to the scorching heat that lay across my small body. Comparing to the house in New Jersey, there was nothing very special and significant within the neighborhoods of Las Vegas. Each house next door had almost the same structure, color, and size. It was bland and nothing stood out to me. Since then I never came back and visited the east coast, but my senses made me remember my old home and its beautiful surroundings.

Everything inside this house is as remarkable as the outside. The environment outside my former home in New Jersey is something I cannot forget. The weather was interchangeable depending on the seasons. The rain and snow kept me from going outside, but on sunny days everything became beautiful.
