Welcome! Tally ho!

Our B.V.I. Adventure is designed to give our family, friends and any other interested followers a look into the life of two expatriates making their way on the island of Tortola. Tortola is the largest island in the British Virgin Islands.

So, why did we move 2,000 miles away from our home in Knoxville, Tennessee? Michael accepted a position as the director of retail and international sales for a Caribbean clothing brand.

Day 5: Unpacking

After the mess that was customs yesterday, we woke up this morning with our own things...including the Keurig single cup brew.  Coffee has never tasted soooooo good!

We still have quite a bit of unpacking to do, but we'll get there.  We started with the office and the living room.  I'm so happy with the way the living room has turned out.  What do you think?

My mother-in-law and I made the monogrammed pillow.  Our inspiration was Leontine Linens in New Orleans.  I made the other pillows from a mix of Pottery Barn fabrics and napkins from Home Goods.  

I still have a ways to go with the office.  Will post photos of it soon...Nothing beats the incredible views from this place.  The entire back of the house is windows.  Check it out:

Michael is back in the office today, so it's pretty quiet around here.  I have plenty of work to get done, so I'm fine with it.  This afternoon however, we will head down to Pusser's at Road Town.  {You can see us there if you click on the webcams.}  Apparently, Charles, the owner of Pusser's, posts up there every Friday afternoon.  This ritual is quite legendary; even tourists hear about it and show up hoping to meet Charles and drink grog with the old man. 
My family comes in on Sunday, and with them they will be bringing Milly!  I can't wait to see her!!!  I wonder what she will think of our BVI adventure...
