Moving on

I feel bad. I know I said I'd be blogging more frequently, but here we are again - 10 days since my last post about gazpacho... I've been busy apartment hunting you see. (And, as anyone who's ever been doing that particular task in a major city knows - it's a daunting, time consuming endeavour.) Since our circumstances have changed slightly, Sean and I recently realised that we need to leave our lovely (but snug) 900 sq feet one bedroom place in Brentwood for something larger... As luck (or persistence) would have it, we found it in Beverly Hills last weekend. I'm very pleased; the new apartment is a much bigger 1400 sq feet, two bed, two bath with separate dining room and a working wood burning fireplace. (Been longing to cozy up in front of one of those ever since I left home some 12 years ago!) Furthermore - and to my great delight - it is housed on the entire second floor of a beautiful, pre-war, redbrick building with the original detailing intact. (Please excuse my bragging - it's the excitement spilling over. :)

We got the keys on Monday, and last night we decided to "break in" our new home with a little picnic on the floor. All our stuff is still here in Brentwood,  so we brought a blanket to sit on, sandwiches, lemonade and some candles. It was quite a special experience; there was a beautiful sunset casting a lovely peach glow over the rooms, and sitting there in the silence of the empty apartment, we both felt certain that the all important atmosphere was just right...

But I digress. Anyhow, because of the impending move, a week of house sitting for my parents-in-law (who live on the beach, so that shouldn't be too taxing), possible vacationing, our anniversary and Sean's birthday - I thought I'd give myself an August long break from C'est LA vie. (Because, you know...  blogging is just such hard work!!)

 I fully expect to be settled in by early September, when I'll be back online with updates and probably one or two interior pics from our new place (for those of you who like to see those kinds of things:).

In the meantime, I want to wish you all a wonderful rest of the summer. Hope to see you again in the fall! Xx

This August will mark 11 years since Sean and I met
and 6 years since we tied the knot... Time flies!

We all need time out - and a lovely place to come home to! A fire makes such a difference, I feel so wifely when I light mine - just remember to get the chimney swept first... I had jackdaws!
