Our Cape Town Home

Hard to believe it’s almost been 2 weeks since we left Cape Town. Been going through the photos and found one that I never got to post. It’s the outside of the building we lived in; 220 Westside Studios. Our place is one floor down from the top and the one with the windows open.

Been back home for over a week now and settling back into life. One thing I immediately noticed when we returned is just how green it is around here.
