Breakfast in the Conservatory

English breakfast tea, cream top yogurt and rainforest granola should be good fuel for another day of thrift storing, flea marketing, and antique mauling. Julia and I just moved to Kansas City, MO from Santa Cruz, CA.

Woah! That's a big change!
Yeah, it is a big change for both of us. It's our first place together. Our apartment is the nicest and most spacious place I've lived in since my mom's house, which, I might add, is less than a mile away. But the change isn't so big. Our neighborhood art institute still brings the flow of brash youth to our window.

Your mom's house? But I thought you were from Santa Cruz!
I grew up in Kansas City, Julia grew up in Sacramento and we studied in Santa Cruz. After six years absence I look forward to working through what it is to be young, independent and courageous in the place that I've known the best, love dearly and must learn again.

We will live here one year. If all goes well there will be 12 months of seasons, crafts, robotic telepresence, video webisodes, photos and blog posts!
