The first couple of years we lived in San Diego we were apartment dwellers. The apartment was nice but it was awful to not have any outdoor "natural" space. We lived across the street from a fantastic mall so if I wanted to take a walk without driving, it had to be there. Other than that, we had a small patio where William liked to spend a lot of time, but there's only so much you can do in a 14'x14' space in the shade. So when we started looking for a house to rent I was super excited about the prospect of having a yard. Then when I saw our yard with two orange trees, a lemon tree, a peach tree, a rose bush, a huge covered patio and lots of grassy space I was in love. This Saturday reminded me of why I fell in love in the first place.
Life's good but I still need a nap.
