I know it’s been FOREVER since my last post (I always blog once a week, but it’s now officially been 3 weeks since my last post. Yikes!) That is why I have an extra special post to share with you today along with a MAJOR life updates.
Now most of you know that John and I moved out to San Diego last July. If you didn’t, well now you’re updated and, if you want, you can read a little bit more about our move here. What you might not have known is that we’ve been living with my parents these last seven months, along with my sister, her dog, my parents’ dog and our little Gus – a full house! Well home is now 223 Marcheta Street, and we couldn’t be happier! Although we were really hoping to buy a house, it just wasn’t working out, and when I spotted this little cottage on a walk one morning, I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to live in this neighborhood, be walking distance from awesome restaurants and shops (shout out to hapifish, the Bird House Grill and Pannikin) and a block, (yes, you read that correctly) a single block from the beach.
So we’re renting for now and loving every minute of it! It’s so wonderful to have our furniture out of storage and filling what were once empty, yawning rooms. I already have a favorite spot in the house. It’s sitting looking out the window on my swivel rocker. This also happens to be Gus’s favorite spot except for he perches himself on the back ledge so he can have a view out the window. I have to tell you, it’s like puppy television.
Major life update #2: John and are going to Spain!!!!!!!!!! We have been talking about taking this trip for years, but we just couldn’t seem to ever commit. Well, once we found out that we had enough sky miles to cover both of our flights, we were sold. No more excuses. So we will be spending the first part of April traveling around Spain. (More to come on this subject, I promise!)
Little Gus is all grown up now. I love his deep, soulful, brown eyes.
Our place doesn’t have a back yard, so John and my dad worked all day last Saturday creating this little side yard space for our outdoor table. It’s perfect!
Our cross street and a view of the front door!
