I moved! Did you hear? I’m renting a wonderful house with the wonderful AIG and, after 10 weeks, we’ve finally got the place set up. We had a great party Saturday night where many of our friends came by to see the place and
turn green-eyed with envy have a great time and try our Spanish-style Tapas and our homemade infused vodkas. Can I show you the place? Would you like to see?
It doesn’t really look like much from the outside…
But it’s adorable inside! Check out our cozy living room:
That’s a gorgeous big window, huh? And then off a little hallway:
We’ve got the office (that’s the AIG’s place, I’ve got a great space in the garage and just haven’t had a chance to shoot it yet.)
There’s our cozy bedroom (check out the AIG’s beautiful window treatments!):
And there’s a little bathroom, just perfect for two:
Check out the pink tile (some might call it “cute”) and the great old fixtures:
The other direction off the living room is the kitchen, just right for two people to cook in:
(The washer/dryer is directly to my right in this shot — that’s right, I’ve got one in my home! Clean, fresh laundry almost every day.)
Beyond the kitchen is the pets’ room, birdcage pictured, dog bowls just below:
Now, the pets share their room with something almost as important:
The pets’ room opens onto the most incredible part of the house, the backyard:
That whole thing is ours, I’m at the back of the yard facing towards the house in that shot, and there’s a fence in the middle which is convenient ’cause I can lock the dog behind that while I take out the garbage. The awning is a great shelter under which we enjoy dinner and, especially, weekend brunch. But maybe the biggest winner is the hammock, next to the lemon tree:
Everyone loves the backyard!
As I mentioned, we had a *great* party. It was wonderful to see all our friends and show off the place to them. And I really want to thank them for all the wonderful loot they gave us:
We’re going to have some great barbecues in the backyard, come on by later this summer!
