mother's day brunch
banana buckwheat pancakes w bacon and hot peanut butter syrup. YAS.
we moved! (this post was meant for last monday...but life. new post coming soon!)
i mean, we decided that having this baby is not enough change for us, so we picked up and moved...5 miles away.
after 1.5 weeks of reno (new floors, paint, adding a bedroom, can't believe it got done!!), we moved into our new home and jake and i are equal parts exhausted and elated. we had a chance to go back to our other house to clean and pack up the last of our things and i totally cried saying goodbye to our first home.
5 years ago, i would have NEVER thought we would settle in long beach, but here we are and we really love it. long beach is a huge city w lots of different neighborhoods and up and coming restaurant so what im trying to say is...all of our friends should move here. haaaa
our new neighborhood is closer to the water and walking distance to everything: trader joes, coffee, tacos, bagels, gym, sushi, fancy market (lazy acres, never heard of it until we moved here, but its JUST like whole foods1), and anything else you can think of. there are a lot more young families in the neighborhood and we met one the other night and i wanted to ask for their phone number, but jake and i agreed that it was too soon and too creepy to ask on our first encounter. but on our second encounter... :)
more photos of the new place coming soon!
our last night in our old house.
