the big move

Well, we finally did it, we moved the 30m next door to our new house!this is what the downstairs looks like - plywood floors, backerboard for the wood stove tiling project (WSTP). upstairs looks a little better but with ~400 boxes.
miles is really mesmerized by the washing machine:
Our friend Sebastien's family has a small vineyard at their home near Bordeaux, where they produce a couple hundred bottles of wine a year. We got one of these such bottles from Sebastien, and we've been saving it for our first night in the new house. It was a nice, delicate wine with a smooth finish and made for a really romantic dinner. It felt really good to be in our own place, creating our own space, sharing the start of a new life together....
These two should have been cut off sooner.

Kievksii Torte

Nastia and Brandon had us (and a few other Russian/Ukrainian types) over for a delicious Russian meal and this famous (although I'd never heard of it) Kievskii cake. it's made up of meringue layers and a buttery chocolate frosting - SO delicious! ...and it only takes about 7 hours to make!

shake it like a polaroid picture

As most of my readers (all 3 of you) know, I really love photography. Blogspot just started this neat project http://play.blogger.com/ which is simply a slideshow of all the photos being uploaded on people's blogs (are blogger and blogspot the same?). It is super addictive, slightly(?) voyeuristic, and just amazingly interesting. I keep thinking I'll see someone I know.

I also found this cool website
POLANOIR devoted completely to polaroids, from people all over the world.
