Is it too late to say, “Happy New Year!” when January is half over? Probably. But Happy New Year, anyway. The past month just flew by in a blur and between this post and my last, so many things have happened–including another move within LA.
After unpacking over a hundred boxes on my own and making our new home nice and presentable, we finally got around to getting Internet connection. This means I got my desktop out of its box and turned it on for the first time in over a year. (It was waiting for me in LA with K while I was in Japan waiting to go to LA to join K. Okay, that’s too wordy but whatever. I haven’t written anything in a while so bear with me.)
This new house though. Oh gosh. We are so lucky to have a place with such a great view of the sunset. It literally blinds us every morning. E is happy to have a room to herself and has requested that I make it green and pink, her favorite colors. I’m gonna have to dig in really deep to find my inner girly decorator so that her room turns out cute instead of looking like one of my monochrome film shots.
E and I play outside every day, and as always whenever I bring my camera with me, she insists on taking some photos too. I know I’m biased but I think she’s got a great touch. The following two shots were taken by her with my huge DSLR. (And here’s what she looked like in action.)
Following a few days of pouring rain and cold nights, the weather has been really nice. During those rainy days though, I kept on complaining to K, since he had insisted that it never really rains here and it’s always nice out.
But now that LA is feeling more like LA, he keeps on telling me, “Miwa, THIS is what it’s like. This is LA!”
I hear you, K.
And well, I love it.
