WK 2 >> day ONE

While Mom had been in town we had bought a full box of pastries from the boulangerie down the street and treated ourself to a couple throughout the day as we cooked and portioned food for the freezer as well as hung up all the curtains, made the bathroom feel homey, and unboxed my Verisimo -- setting up a temporary coffee station in the dining room.

WK 1 >> day THREE

I wasnt emotionally prepared to take on the full project of the kitchen yet -- degreasing, sanding, priming and painting every surface -- but I didnt want to be living out of plastic tubs either so I dug out a few essentials for cooking and eating. Creating and placing the flags onto my world map was a fun break from all the hard work. Unpacking all of my books -- about half of my boxes contained books -- organizing them and placing them on my newly assembled IKEA bookcase was a big step of progress. Being able to push my bedroom furniture back against the walls was another one.





















little house THREE

December 27, 2014 I moved into Little House TWO and began cleaning, painting, and decorating it. Exactly two years later my husband, of just less than a year, and I -- seven months pregnant, and our Great Pyrenees dog, Barley James, moved into Little House THREE. When we moved out of the second Little House we sold most of our furniture and purged out a lot of other belongings. What we had left -- with the latest addition of a few practical pieces of furniture and some things for Baby O -- is what we unpacked into the third Little House. The apartment you see is as we found it except for three small improvements: hanging a towel hook near the sink in the bathroom, as well as the pot and the knife rack in the kitchen. A small apartment that isn't much to look at and our minimal belongings have come together to make a very cozy home -- just in time for us to become a three-some.
