What I will miss about my little place...
*driving through my darling neighborhood to get home
*the tiny window-paned front door
*it's incredible weather-proofing, never got too hot or cold in there
*the little stone pathway down the side of the house to get there
*coming home at night and feeling a warm breeze and pausing for a moment on the front lawn to see our good view of hills outlined against the star-speckled night sky
*my regular running route around the neighborhood, over to the golf course, and always a pause to stretch by the bench overlooking the San Roque Valley by the lawn bowling club
*how my landlord will go out to pretend to mow the lawn but really because he saw i was coming or going and wanted to chat
*walking to Trader Joes or Taco Bell or over to the condo compound
*how compact it is and how i had a place for everything, easily accessible
*the tile work in my bathroom and kitchen
*my address... i thought it was cute
*being so close to work, no freeway driving at all
*the fact that it was my first place of my own
*of course i've made some good memories there, and i'll have to say goodbye to the scene of them... but seeing as this is the fifth move since i graduated college i suppose i'm used to it
such is the life of a girl in her mid-twenties. cheers to the new place and new memories. cheers to my dear second family who own the new amazing studio i'm moving to and will greet my arrival tonight with margaritas. and cheers to all my friends who will spend some precious hours of their weekend to help me move... pizza and beer all around.
