Welcome to my new piso!
Come on in...
Take a load off and catch up on some Spanish tv while looking at that awesome fireplace
Take a nap on my big (but very hard) bed.
Help yourself to my 100lbs of clothes and shoes.
They're happy to be out of suitcases.
You're welcome to cook something on the hot plate (no oven or stove) but don't bring too much food cause it won't fit in the dorm room sized fridge.
The shower jets will be very relaxing after a long day once I figure out how to turn them on.
And don't forget to step out onto the balcony and take in a view of the quaint street and neighboring buildings.
I am one happy happy girl in my little apartment.
To be settled, unpacked, organized and slowly making this home for the year is wonderful.
I've never lived by myself before,
(and probably never will again because of San Francisco's extreme rental market and I love living with my best friends)
so this is my year of getting to have my own little and very cute space.
When I come home from teaching, open up those balcony doors and rest my tired feet while lesson planning... Then cut up fresh fruit, bread and cheese from the market while listening to the old people jabber in Spanish on the street below....
Big sigh of happiness, you guys.
so so very thankful
