i just moved into the house that i mentioned a month ago. and for those of you who didn't see that post, it's way smaller than my last house but there's a jungle in the backyard, its a small jungle but yes, a jungle. there's also a granny flat which is a guest house in the back yard. and you can walk to so many things from our house: including, baskin robbins (ice cream), cosmo's (a coffee shop, always stocked with ibc rootbeer), and a delicious restaurant -- i don't remember the name -- but i got lasagna, and it was amazing. my sister got cheese ravioli, and it was amazing. they had homemade gelato; which, in my opinion, is the best kind of ice cream/frozen yogurt/sorbet/etc. i got cookies and cream gelato, and instead of the base being vanilla, it was chocolate (so, it was chocolate cookies and cream). and i loved it.
i got over the sadness of us moving away from our pool very fast. and after all, i'm very happy that we moved.
