After many planes, trains, automobiles, and buses we are back hOMe from our month long European trip! Andrew, the kids and I traveled to Germany, Denmark, Sweden, England and Scotland and had a truly remarkable journey visiting family, connecting with our heritage and showing the kids theirs. Both Andrew and I are first generation Americans and were raised by immigrant parents so we have a lot of family abroad and spent a lot of our childhood visiting our parents’ home towns. It was wonderful to be together as a family for such an extended period of time, especially since our son is headed out to college in two weeks and our daughter leaves soon for an international gap year program.
Gabriella has had a fascination and interest in housing and how we occupy space for most of her life. A global traveler, she has lived in all types of housing from an oceanside mansion in Rio De Janeiro, to an 80 sqft historic log cabin with no running water, plumbing and electricity in the Colorado mountains. Gabriella is happiest and most at peace when living in a tiny space in close contact with her family and nature.
