It is 5:04 and all is well.
Although Emeryville has a few downsides (i.e. I’ve heard more gunfire here than anywhere else in the East Bay…mom, you didn’t just read that) there are certainly some pluses: 1.) A population of only 8,000. 2.) Lots of creative folk in a small stretch of land 3.) A Berkeley Bowl we can walk to 4.) Free furniture right outside our door. In my building people put their old goods out in our hall and Cooper and I snatch ’em faster than you can believe. Some good stuff too! We are totally those neighbors who peek outside our door every five minutes to see if there is something new (well, not really but kind of). The dresser above came from said hall and except for a different dresser Cooper and his bro/pa made the above dresser is one of my favorite pieces in our loft. Anthropologie-esque but free. We don’t really have anything in it yet but I’m sure that will change soon. Oh! And when we got it it was full of toys in one of the stuck drawers. Jackpot!
