It's a little happy/sad over here on Hollywood Ave. We put our house up for sale Easter weekend and within a few weeks we thankfully had offers. Now everything has gone through and it is safe to say we sold our home.
Home is such a loaded word. With all the memories, smells, tastes, and hard work that goes into them it becomes harder than you think to say goodbye.
Hollywood Ave was mine and Derek's first home together. It is where 'we' started four years ago.
Most of all we will miss Porter's sun porch. He climbs from furniture piece to furniture piece commanding the neighborhood from his domain. Yelling at all the passersby and waving fondly at anyone who dares make eye contact. He sneakily sidles up to our potted plant- when we've stopped paying close attention- to grab as much dirt as those little hands can hold to shove in as much dirt as that little mouth can hold.
It's a small front porch but it can hold Porter's whole world
