Wonderful news! I've landed my own apartment and move in September 1st. This will be the first time I'm living alone since 2001 and I am thrilled to have made yet another positive, personal step forward. The place is beautiful and located in a funky, hip part of Oakland - and that isn't even code for up-and-coming, it has arrived.
Now to get my stuff out of storage and nestle into me-space. Just the thought of browsing my cookbooks and preparing a home-cooked meal is more than I can imagine. All that stuff in storage that I thought I wanted to push over a cliff has become so important to me.
Doors close and others were just waiting to open but needed the space.
