for now, enjoy some new antony.

we move this weekend - it's been ridiculous. the amount of packing & demo-ing & rehab & painting & stripping & pulling & boxing & taping & pitching & passing along & trying to get rid of & sanding & dumping & late nights & & & & ...has me very overwhelmed.
but what makes me happy is standing on my tiptoes in the very far left corner of MY backyard & seeing the tip of the golden gate bridge twinkle at night far in the distance...it will be worth it (in maybe 10 years!)
can't wait for the huge move-in push to be done this weekend!

so, it's totally official - we finally got our keys to our new home - even after that last post when i thought we were good to go, even up to the very last minute it was still touch n go on whether or not this crazy falling down home would be ours to bring back to life with some love!!
i love this photo by emilie79 on flickr - new polaroid film they are testing out. this whole house mission this entire last year plus felt impossible, but now, i can truly say, it was impossible 'not' :) at last!
we've already begun pulling up the disgusting carpet & revealing the hardwood floors - our before & after's will hopefully knock your socks off because yesterday as i wandered around our *home*, i laughed & laughed at the impossible-ness of the work needed for this home. but i'm going to try to keep that "not" in my mind regarding the work for her too - impossible not. i like it.
