what do graffiti and cookies have in common?

it's official: we love our sweet new home. the place feels a bit grownup: dishwasher, laundry, driveway... and also quite homey.

on our first day here, while david was hanging the shower curtain near the open bathroom window, our neighbor passing between our two houses introduced herself. i peeked through the window to extend my greetings, and then a couple hours later, she showed up at our front door accompanied by her adorable curly-haired son to welcome us with fresh-baked cookies. her son proudly yelped that HE made them. so nice!

this episode--ripped from the americana headlines--was oddly juxtaposed to our former neighborhood's farewell address. david was almost finished cleaning, and left the apartment for a few minutes to run an errand. he returned to find this.

on our front door. former front door.

Congrats on the move! And the graffiti - appearing just in case you needed as sign.

Looking forward to seeing some pix of the new place - plus, of course, we'll have to come and visit again soon!
