Here it is. Our new apartment, our work in progress. We are suddenly feeling...at home.
The diamond in the rough from August is now starting to charm us in November. There's still a lot to do.
But I'll tell you, I had no idea how liberating moving would actually be. It kicked everything into high gear, but the slow gear is feeling pretty good. Slow gear feels right at home. You told me that but I didn't believe it. Our friends and family helped us a lot.
I'll start the house tour with the Dining Room. It gets insanely good light. It has a larder.
We painted these floors white. It hosted Thanksgiving. We are slowly hoping for a something big for the wall across from the fireplace. The cats are into being fat all over the day bed. The day bed likes it.
“The autumn leaves are falling like rain
Although my neighbors are all barbarians
And you, you are a thousand miles away
There are always two cups at my table.”
