Moved into our new Tall Tree house and down to just a fraction of the myriad boxes, we're just starting to get the hang of this place.

Well it seems like it took forever to renovate our house, pack, and move from Oakland but we finally managed it in February. Now we're old east bay dogs learning new peninsula tricks. Where to get fresh produce or meat or fish for the grill. Where's the nearest Peet's? Which Philz concoctions haven't we tried yet? Where to take my shirts to the cleaner. Where to get a haircut? Oh, and we joined the Y. B still commutes back to the east by twice a week for Pilates and lunch with friends. I made tat drive so many times over the past few yeas the I've only been back once. Lots more to figure out and learn but we're onto our new life (I even have a new job here in Palo Alto) and ready to figure it out as we go. Here's one thing I didn't realize about the move until I looked carefully at the map. Did you know that Palo Alto is *east* of Oakland?
