I’m moving… into my first house, or rather, in true city fashion, condo. It’s a beautiful 1890’s Victorian house in the Haight, completely redone. Though not large, my unit is lovely. By next issue, I’ll be just moved in. For now, it’s the drain of packing, purging, mentally adjusting from the happiest home I’ve known in Noe, to a whole new season. Excited and fearful for the new, a comforting meal and drink is especially needed in times of transition and exhaustion.
