I Am Wearing: Truly, Madly, Deeply

It wasn't love at first sight. But now it is: LOVE. I am in love with my new home country, the United States of America. I truly madly deeply am.

All Washington DC went nuts for the 4th of July festivities (well, naturally), and our weekend also had USA written all over its' forehead (well, naturally). My youngest brother is visiting, and we couldn't be happpier!

Remember: I'm a sucker for a m e r i c a n a

My littlest brother Pepi is staying a MONTH with us!

Paint It ♥

My refugee-campy apartment has become ♥HOME♥ to us since we moved here in December 2012. Bout time we put some make-up on her, don't you think?!

As I was enjoying a couple of days off in between jobs, and while my kids were still at school, I painted some walls - following the BIG decision not to move again despite the disgusting rent we're paying...
(But as I've said so many times before: DC is DC is DC. Y punto.)

 BEFORE                                                AFTER
 The wall went from white (dirty) to pink and gray.
There's no natural light in our narrow corridor of an entrance.
