No internet at the apartment, so for now I have to make my way next door to the library to post. I have to make this quick because we just got through the library's book sale- where a bag of books was $3, and because it was after 3:00, the sale was over and all the books were free. Free. So, needless to say, I need to get home and dig through this very heavy bag.
I want to type out a whole post about getting here, crying, missing my mom like she used to live next door or something, exploring, unwinding, relaxing (just a bit), the best coffee shop ever, cheap burritos, homemade donuts, etc., but for now, I give you this:
...really bad photos of our new place, just to give you an idea. The way they post them, they're backwards from how I took them/wrote the descriptions, so if it sounds weird when I reference something you haven't seen yet, you know why.
One last thing as Andrew pulls me towards our next adventure, thank you for the all the comments and kind words. It's amazing how hard it hits when you realize how far you are from what you know, and reading them keeps me afloat while I make my place here.
