the other night, we got in the car and went for a drive. it's a favorite pastime of ours to get lost and this particular evening was no exception. as we drove on, over the hills, around the lakes, the sun sank lower and lower in the sky. ("here? it's like an entirely different universe.") creamy dreamsicle orange intermingled with cotton candy pink, lilac wisps of cloud and pale blue trails behind black silhouettes of trees, fields of summer crops. eventually we found our way again, wandering on back where we started.
slowly but surely, it's starting to feel like home.
we're making progress at the one-bedroom. today was primarily a kitchen day; we tackled the stove, cleaned the microwave, and emptied pretty much all of the cabinets and drawers. i still can't believe we'll be out of here in half a month. this apartment has been good to us, and i have a lot of really amazing memories here, but it's time to find a new place to land.
another good thing? we found a new tenant pretty quickly. he'll be signing the lease next week. everything's all starting to feel really official; it's still terrifying, but the more i think about it, the more excited i get. life just keeps getting better. (i'm a lucky girl.)
