Yes, everything is okay if you dismiss the mess we live in right now. I will take that we all moved one day so you know what it is and what it takes to unpack and make your new home feel like home.
It's been a week since we moved and we are definitely slowly settling in. The photo below was taken on our first day here and things are already looking slightly better. Since we had very little furnitures we now need to (hand)make some pieces in order for our belongings to find a spot to fit in. Right now Gurvan is working on a dining table made of recycled palette wood. Next in line will be bookshelves, one under the ladder for Manech's books collection and another larger one that we will use as a room divider. I will get some curtains going too and hopefully we will keep things pretty simple in here. I have made a promise to myself to try and chase the clutter away. I might have crossed my fingers when I made the promise but no, I do want our space to remain as simple as possible. I mean look : it really is a simple studio space. A rather large one, with an attached office which is g r e a t and a cool bathroom. It's a little over 700 square feet and I am thankful that the owners made it a large airy open space rather than trying to make it a 1 or even 2 bedrooms just like a lot of people do around here and you end up with tiny tiny rooms. Anyways, we love it that way. And we love our landlords who live next door. We have known them for a few years, that's how we ended-up renting here. Everyone's happy and I can't wait to get the space cosy and functional.
There has been a lot of rain in the past few days and the house doesn't feel humid at all which is a really good thing when you live on the Jungly-North-shore-side of Maui.
Anyways, I am sorry for going MIA without a notice. We didn't get internet right away and I'll admit that I was enjoying a little computer break. Breathing into the latest changes in our lives.
