Sábado en el barrio

April 12th, 2011

El sábado pasado fuimos andando al centro que tenemos cerca. Compramos fresas (las primeras de primavera!), alcachofas, y pan en el mercado que tenemos alli los sábados. Como siempre llevé la camara, y disfrutaba de sacar fotos de Juanjo, las calles, las flores primaverales. ¡Estamos muy contentos con el barrio!

Moving in

September 16th, 2010

We got the keys for our new place one month ago, and in that time have done a LOT! We bought a bed, a set of bedroom furniture, a couch, a table. We designed and stained a desk for both of us. We went to Ikea (the picture is Juanjo getting silly on one trip), spent time on Craigslist, visited more home/furniture stores more times than we usually do in a whole year. And little by little we gathered our belongings from around the Bay. (We had boxes and things being stored with four family members in Santa Rosa, two friends in San Francisco, a friend out in the East Bay, and two different houses on the Peninsula.)

The house is finally starting to come together and feel like home, though we still have a lot of boxes to unpack. More pictures soon!

New House, New Neighborhood

August 2nd, 2010

Here at last, pictures of the new house! We can’t wait to get our keys (August 15th) and start moving in. It’s been more than a year since we had our OWN house (we’ve been in furnished places for the last year, with everything in storage (thank you sisters’ garages!).

The apartment is the bottom floor of an old San Francisco house, on a quiet street, with a big wooden balcony that has views of Twin Peaks, and wooden floors throughout. Lots of natural light, space, and only two blocks from the main street in the Noe Valley neighborhood. And there is a shared garden in the back, with a brick path, redwood trees, and a tranquil bench.

After a year of living on the road, in comfortable and furnished, yet temporary places, we can’t wait to have our own home again. Our own furniture, books, photos. There’s also a guest bedroom, so please come visit us!
