Park Slope-original home of the Brooklyn Dodgers

Just when we'd basically hit our breaking point of a. being apart and b. having basically every part of our life an big unknown right now, Regan found us a place to live! Isn't it amazing how one piece of progress can change everything? Phew. So it's in Park Slope, Brooklyn, New York, New York. That's probably not how you write that. And I keep calling the subway the metro. I've got a lot to learn. Anyway, Regan knows how to sell me on a place because the first thing he sent me about the area was the "Baseball History" blurb from the wikipedia page. I'm a sucker for baseball. Especially from way back then. Anyway, our street looks like this:
And we have an intercom to buzz people up. And a ceiling fan. And a costco 2.2 miles away. And a Target 1.3 miles away. (Just ya know, for when I need a familiar face.) So I'm sold.

Did I ever tell you about our honeymoon? No? What kinda blog is this? Let's do it. We stayed a night at the Aria in Vegas (coolest place. mostly because it had a master room controller thing so we could turn so many things on and off without hardly moving. I know they aren't new but I'd never seen one.) Then we flew to San Diego for the week. Mostly we just hung out on our cool deck eating our room service breakfast basking in the fact that this scenario will probably never happen again. (berry french toast. every morning.)
 One day we went to the zoo. Turns out flamingos were our favorite. Those swirly necks don't get enough credit.
 This giant panda was a close second.
 And here's Regan with his best friends. He couldn't get enough of those La Jolla seals. I'm not being sarcastic. Also, it was rainy and windy and cold and we didn't care.
 Here's a group shot some lady made us take.
 We ate Thrifty ice cream at every opportunity. Hasn't changed in 20 years. And obviously neither have their store graphics.
Sometimes we just went here cuz it was in our parking lot. I debated about the same shoes every time and never bought them. Still think about them. Learn your lesson here, folks.
 And here I am with my best friends. The ranuncula fields in Carlsbad. I was SO excited to go and it was pretty disappointing. This one display area was cool but the 55 acres were pretty barren. I guess we were too early to catch them like THIS! I'd probably go back at least 5 times to try to catch that though.
 There was a maze you could walk through made of sweet peas. Mom- you would have loved it.
 I stole one for the drive to Long Beach because it was the best colors I've ever seen.
Then we hung out with Rory at the airport/flew home/wished it could last forever.

Regan moved to New York today

It feels really weird. For lots of reasons. Like because I still live here in an apartment with all of our stuff still living here. And because we found out a week ago that this was happening. And because I still don't believe I'm moving there in a month (26 days). I'm nervous about lots of big (finding an apt/paying our bills/finding a job/being lost/homesickness/how should we move all our stuff?) and small (how do you get popsicles home from the store before they melt?) things but I'm trying to focus on the positive things. Like that Regan starts a dream job tomorrow. And how I can just go sit here or here whenever I want. And how someday we're going to spend a weekend in this cabin. And go to baseball games in DC/Boston/NY/NY! And how our friends/family are going to be visiting us all the time. Right guys?
