We are saying goodbye to the Jungalow 1.0 this weekend. We are excited about what’s to come, but we will miss this place. This was the first home Jason and I rented together. We got married while living here (and by the way just read the Supreme Court ruled same-sex marriage a constitutional right and…WOOHOO!!!!! So happy about this!). I was pregnant in this house. We had Ida while living here. It’s morphed over the past five years and grown with us as we have grown. I will always remember this place as the place that we started our family.
Moving is not easy. It’s a very emotional process. There have been many evenings over the course of the last month that I got stuck reading old essays from college, looking through photographs from high school, or debating about whether or not to toss out 970 business cards from a past failed business venture (I know, my hoarder-ish tendencies are hovering just beneath the surface of all of this…). Moving is so sentimental, it’s cathartic but it’s so challenging for me. I have been focusing on purging. Our new house, as you may remember from this post, is small. The rooms are all smaller than the rooms here at the rental. Letting go is the name of the game. I have been taking deep breaths and putting a lot of stuff I love into the Yard Sale pile. Just because I love something, doesn’t mean I’ll miss looking at it when it’s gone, right?
So that brings me to my next topic which is the yard sale. This is not a fancy sale. No letter pressed price tags, no lemonade, no design-blogger style displays–just good old fashion piles to dig through and bargains to be had–from clothing to objects to small furniture pieces, throw pillows, textiles, kitchen stuff, you name it. We’re starting tomorrow (Saturday, 6/27) at 8AM and here is the address:
1425 W. 2nd St. Los Angeles, CA 90026.
Hope to see you. Have a great weekend my friends.
