this past week has been full of unpacking, organizing, cleaning, and recuperating – all this moving and travel has lowered my immune system and i came down with a cold over the weekend, which sadly meant no celebrating on the 4th :(  so instead i’ve been curled up on the couch sipping soup with otto and watching some of my favorite films. it hasn’t really felt like summer here in san francisco anyway – the weather has been pretty chilly lately. one thing i really love about my new place is that we have a little backyard! i can’t wait to start buying plants and herbs to turn it into a pleasant little garden!
