It starts feeling like home

Starts to feel like home...


Three weeks, that's how long we've been here, in the new apartment. With all the boxes unpacked (there are a few exceptions, still), it starts to feel like home. And the four of us have a general good feeling about the new place. We like how it is roomier. We love the abundance of light. We love having quiet neighbors. We love seeing people walk down the street. We love being closer to the shops.

A lot remains to be done still - but we prefer to take it slowly. We've got nothing on the walls for instance, because we like our clean bare walls for one thing and because we want to make the right decision before drilling that hole. Maybe, we'll drill a first hole next weekend to put up our kitchen shelves - we know now where we want the olive oil to be...

Little by little, it will become our place.

love this! glad to hear you take your time too. I'm terribly slow at decorating. I'm just in love with white/light colored walls!

It's good to land in a new space, and then get to know what it's like to be in that space for a while. Then, there will be plenty of time to investigate how to actually connect to that space, and to even change it by making your own arrangements.

Best wishes.
