We’re Still Here !

Our Stuff is Here

FINALLY!! It’s only slightly embarrassing that we shipped an entire box dedicated to the cat. Now it’s time for the obligatory apartment pictures. Annddddd…. yep. That’s our apartment in three pictures (minus the bathroom, but who really wants to see that)! For Dutch standards, we have a large apartment at about 700 square feet, andContinue reading “Our Stuff is Here”
