got it.

apartment search: officially over.

our new pad is beautiful, perfect, and unique. the last part describes an element to our new home that i still can't believe exists. we've rented what was part of a 19th century winery that is now part of a community--14 residential units, a yoga studio, and an active artist's group inhabit the group of buildings that border a courtyard. our home was the owner's unit, and it's a lovely space, complete with a deck, wood floors, airy bay windows windows where the sun streams in, and a wood stove. this summer, the artist group is a partner in transforming the concrete courtyard into a green sculpture garden--our deck overlooks the courtyard, and we can hardly contain our excitement around this space's evolution. the owner showed us renderings and photos of what they are planning, and it is tremendous. from all accounts our new home is more than the space we live in, and we can't be happier about that fact!

it's hard to describe the beauty and charm of the place but you've done a pretty good job i think! an outside deck! an outside deck in the sunniest area of san francisco! a woodstove! what's not hard is describing our excitement. =)

no pics?

very awesome :-) So, that means you're even closer now to excellent food from Central America, Mexico, Senegal, Indian Pizza (which is, btw, it's own country), Spain, etc.!
