the bygone days of pizza & menorahs

I've been photographing our apartment for Bobby's mom, Nancy. She lives in Montreal, a half-day's journey across the country, and frequently asks for pictures. She likes to see the progress we're making from week-to-week and it's a great excuse to compile a scrapbook of our first home here in Mississauga.

I took a photo of the kitchen on the night that our boxes arrived from the moving company. Looking at it still gives me agita. Yes, that's a pizza box sitting next to an electric menorah.

We were sleeping on an air mattress and pocketing plastic ware from coffee shops {sorry Tim Horton's}. It was one of those life moments that totally sucked at the time but we laugh about now that it's behind us.


About 2 weeks after the first photo was taken, I took another from the same angle. The tools on the knife rack say everything about our state of mind at the time. We lived like this for a good 3 weeks.


Today, one month after the last photo was taken, I emailed another to Nancy. It's the first one taken in the daytime and I can't get over how different it looks from the first one! The pizza box is long gone and the electric menorah now enjoys a happy life on a closet shelf.
