A hurricane of change

So remember last week when I was all on about how I think change is a fabulous thing and I'm totally into it?

The second, the secretive one I eluded to last week, is finally official - Marc and I are moving!  We're staying in the beautiful Ditmars area of Astoria, and are taking over the gorgeous apartment of our very dear friends Billy and…
