Well, the move happened this last weekend, and though my life is a chaos of boxes, our house is beginning to feel like home. It feels really good. There are a million little details to take care of, including getting our internet set up (thank you, Starbucks wi-fi, for this update), but it feels like it’s coming together. It’s been really sad to move out of our old place – so much good stuff happened there, so much life – but as we dismantled the familiar spaces and boxed our belongings, I started to feel like I could let go. I’ll miss our spot right in the middle of things, I’ll miss our neighbors and our lemon tree and the Arizmendi pizza and bakery around the corner. I’ll miss the political statements posted regularly on the marquis of the Grand Lake Theater down the street, and the farmer’s market on Saturday. But I’m sure we’ll find a lot of new things to love in our new neighborhood. I’m looking forward to getting everything settled so we can start exploring our new city.
No photos today – I think the camera is still in a box somewhere – but I’ll post photos of the new place as soon as we get a little more settled in. I hope you’re all having a good week!

  1. Can't wait to see pictures of the new house. It can be daunting and exciting at the same time when you move to a new place, but how exciting for you!

  2. I'm glad that you mentioned the marquee of the Grand Lake Theater. It's one of the things that reminds me how exuberant and expressive is Oakland and California.

    Did you leave Oakland? Or just to a different neighborhood? Congrats, buying a home is one of the most exciting and fulfilling things ever.
