The 25 Best Things About Having the House to Yourself

I love living with Jake. He makes me tasty breakfast sandwiches, he’s super organized, he leaves me little love notes around, and he’s my favorite thing to wake up to every single morning.
That being said…
Sometimes there is just nothing better than having the apartment to myself. 
Those of you with roommates and/or live-in partners can attest – having a big chunk of time with nobody else home can kinda rock sometimes. (Until its really dark outside. Then I just get scared…)
Carrie Bradshaw describes this phenomenon as SSB: Secret Single Behavior. The things that you can only truly do or enjoy when you’re totally alone in your home. 

Here are the 25 Best Things about Having the House to Yourself:
