I’m so glad to finally be able to share some photos of our home in Sicily. From chaos to… less chaos. Here we go!
Last Wednesday (less than 24 hours after we’d flown back to Sicily), the movers brought our boxes to our new home. We took a lunch break in our kitchen halfway through the day. Thrilled to be moving in at last!
The movers left around 4pm, and they left everything in chaos because they needed to find all “valuable items” (of which we have… like… nothing… but still certain things had been listed). So they unpacked and/or went through every box for us! Where to begin?
Here’s what our bedroom looked like:
And Lena’s room:
Ahhh… take a break to look out the huge kitchen window at that beautiful view.
The next morning we tackled the kitchen. Lena was an eager participant. We have these open shelves in our new kitchen, meaning everything dangerous must be moved out of baby’s reach. She’s pulling herself up and swiping stuff off shelves as quick as she can these days.
But oh… how can you resist that cuteness?
Elliott took a few photos of the view from our balcony:
Another morning in front of the kitchen window. That’s the “gentle giant” Mt Etna smoking in the background.
After a few days, Lena’s room looked better!
Now to tackle all our books. Eventually I shelved them by category and in alphabetical order. Whew.
The washing machine is a new source of fascination.
More beautiful views from the balcony. We’re looking down on a valley and then out towards the Mediterranean. We can hear cow bells as herds graze in the hills or watch shepherds tending their sheep.
The books are shelved, the cardboard boxes are gone, the tubs are filling up with things to put in the garage… it’s beginning to look a little more like home!
