Well, we made it across the country in our Camry and are now settling into Santa Barbara. Twas an epic road trip. My Mr. is back at work and I’m spending my days unpacking, looking for furniture, and cleaning our new apartment. The sound of emergency vehicles has been replaced by rustling palm trees. Blue jays and cooing mourning doves have been traded for seagulls and my new favorite bird, sanderlings. When I look out the window, I no longer see ivy but mountains. It’s a strange, strange life. I have several posts that I never got to publish before leaving Boston so I’ll post them in the next few weeks. We’re definitely missing Boston but we’re exciting for this new adventure.
