I have made some small changes to my schedule that has helped me settle in. Now in the morning instead of sleeping in, I get up and get ready so I can walk with Paul a little bit to work. Getting out and about has really helped to make me feel more at home here. I love looking in all the shops and picking up milk on the way back etc.
This is a row house that is around the corner from our building. This one is on W street and I love the way it looks with the painting on the side. I lust after these rowhouses. Every day when I walk Toby by them, I think I want one, I want one! I can imagine living there and tending to the little garden in front. I even decorate the inside in my head. I just need a lot (a lot!!!) of money to have one! Still, it's fun to dream!
Tonight we are going to have dinner at our neighbors apartment down the hall. They moved in just two weeks after we did and we kept running into them and chatting up a storm so now we are meeting up. Paul picked up a 1/2 dozen cupcakes from Hello Cupcake and we are bringing them over.

My dad was born and raised there... when my grandmother passed away none of us grandchildren had enough money to purchase it and my dad had no interest in buying his boyhood home. Sadly it was sold...ah well...I have wonderful memeories and pictures...
I dream about having a house too. So expensive in our area.
What a cool new neighborhood!
You are so lucky to live in such an area. And Hello Cupcake?? Now, that just sounds devine!! I think I need to move :) LOL
Glad you are starting to enjoy your new "digs"!
I just got your "Beyond the unexpected" book, and it is AWESOME!! I certasinly wish to commission my own piece someday with you, BUT this book gives me some great tools to create my OWN style of poppet-like collage art!! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity and ideas with us.
