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