An Update from STL!

Today marks exactly one week since I’ve been in St. Louis.  Thought it’d be nice for you to get a brief update! It’s been great hanging out with J’s family, finishing up weddings and catching up on album orders. Living out of a suitcase not so much fun, but hey, things could be worse!  Desher adjusted without any issues – she owns the place already :)  Boris took a little longer but is finally coming around.  We received news that J might have to start his job much earlier than planned so we’ve been under some planning stress.  Still a lot of questions and no answers.  In the meantime, I’m taking advantage of the garage space and decided to do any painting or furniture adjusting before our move to San Francisco.  City dwellers, you know how hard it is to do anything in a teeny space!  So I’ve started painting our ikea bed frame yellow!  And will be hunting for new sheets & duvet soon!

Cel-a-brate Good Times, Come’on!

It’s Monday AND it’s moving day (if this is new to you – we are relocating back to San Francisco with a pit stop in St. Louis for the month of July).  This post was hard for me to put together.  So many options…I had a folder made of great photos of friends, but the more I looked at them the harder it was to not be sad. Chicago you’ve been good to us.  The winters were hard (really hard) but the old and new friends you brought us were beyond excellent.  Sure I’ll have memories of the landmarks but the good times were with the people we love as family – they will be more than missed.  So while we drive away, I’m going to keep this short and sweet with a quote from my favorite childhood author.

“Don’t cry because it’s over.  Smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss.
