Good news: I am moving to a bigger and more charming apartment that I can actually invite people into (before I lived in a light-filled, but tiny, studio). And it's in the same leafy Santa Monica neighborhood that I love: I can walk to restaurants, coffee shops, yoga, and the Aero Theatre which shows fantastic classic films. Pictures to come!
Bad news: I am currently in the midst of moving hell. I keep telling myself that I am getting a workout moving all these boxes. It's my sole consolation at this point. Talk to me in a few days when I am more settled in.
