Our Move-PART 7 and Scarlett Johansson

That's us. See us? 
Hi Everyone! 
Hope you had a nice weekend. 
Thank you for your response to the cactus debate. Three of the cacti have found a place outside, near our side entrance. They were the most pointy of the 6, and since cacti are great (outside) placed near doors for protection, that is where I thought they should be. I kept the three more rounded cacti and I am loving them inside.
Now on to PART 7! Obviously we made it, and things have been going really well. It's amazing how just a change in your surroundings can have such a positive impact on your life. It just feels fresh, new, and happy here. 
Since arriving in our new crib, Michael has been working NONSTOP. He had to make a sort of makeshift studio before he can renovate, because of all the work that has come in. It's seriously crazy! Some would say coincidence, but not me. I don't believe in coincidences. 
Here he is in his new studio. I love how I can see (and not hear) him from the family room of this house.

We've met most of the neighbors who have made a point to either knock on the door, or walk over when they see us outside, just to welcome us and introduce themselves. Michael said,"Are we in Pleasantville?!" It's the kind of neighborhood where kids are riding their bikes and  families are out taking walks. People walk in the middle of the street here, and smile and wave as you pass by and not in a creepy way but in a how it used to be in the 70's when  was growing up. Know what I mean? It's just nice. 
We STILL aren't unpacked but these things take time right? 
Ok, now here's the BEST PART OF ALL! Turns out Scarlett Johansson lived here! YES, right here in THIS very home when she was a kid. Mike met our neighbor across the street who has lived in his house for 35 years and says she and her family lived here! What?! Okay, my life is complete. We find out little things about this house everyday, and that one takes the cake!
What are you up to this week? Mike's mom is coming to visit tomorrow, so we are getting ready for that.
Have a sweet week!
