definitely good news

They signed the lease! The new parking space and the flat that comes with it will be mine 1 July! I am simply overjoyed. I haven't seen it yet, but here are some pix from the realtor:



This is my new front door (mine! all mine!) and the courtyard outside.



Above, obviously is the kitchen. Do you see what I see? DRAWERS!! My flat right now has no drawers. Zero. How that's possible, I really don't know. I would have doubted it had you told me anyone would design and build and entire flat with no drawers. But this looks like I have at least four drawers--in one room! And, there are bottom cabinets. This is a big plus for someone who is the perfect height ( 5'2"--condolences for those of you who overshot the mark).

Below is the living room. Do you see the fireplace in there? It all looks so nice and homey. Did you notice that there is no wallpaper? No brown? No burnt pumpkin? No fir branches?


And, to top it all off, I don't have to do any of the packing or moving. Ahhh...life is definitely good!

Wow!

That is incredibly gorgeous!! Congrats to you!

Thank you for volunteering to be linked on No Place Like Home. I am really hoping the blog becomes a strong resource for adopting families.

I think I will put you in the category of Russia older child adoption since you are looking to adopt in the 4-6 year range.

Have a great day!

Your new apt. is just lovely! Modern kitchen and even a dishwasher. Cozy living room with the and nice off white wall (no ugly Russian walllpaper design in fall colors). The courtyard is charming. It's great that you don't even need to pack. How far is it from your current apt? Does it have A/C? The big question is, "Can you adjust/control your own heat?"
