capri suite House-hunting can be such a roller coaster. My weekend involved looking at several places, getting really discouraged, getting really excited, then getting really discouraged again and almost eating a party bag of mini Reese's for dinner.

There's nothing like seeing what you DON'T WANT to make you realize exactly what you do want. The things you simply can't live without. The non-negotiables.

For me, it's LIGHT. Windows, skylights, sliding glass doors. I have to have a bright space. If I'm stuck in a dark room, I get sad, guys. I gots to have my light!

What are some of the things you simply can't live without in your home?
