a west coast update.

Any hesitation I may have felt about moving to San Francisco has lifted.

First there was the landing of our plane, and the subsequent squeals (mine) as water and mountains and bridges came into view. Then there was the drive through Marin, a visit to Radley's house, the sunset behind Mt. Tam. And then, of course, there was waking up with the sunrise, watching the fog slide over the marina, strolling down Chestnut with a vanilla latte in hand.

This is to say nothing of the charming cable cars, the impossibly steep and stunning hills, the incredible (humidity-free!) weather, the trips to visit friends, or lunch at one of my favorite spots, the Tipsy Pig.

This week had serious potential to overwhelm--the job interviews, the apartment-hunting craze, the venue visits (!), all the people and places I hope to see. But to tell you the truth, I'm just too damn happy to feel stressed or worried about any of that. I have faith that things will fall into place. 

I mean, did I mention the palm trees? 
Oh, palm trees, how I've missed you so!

So glad you are enjoying the transition. Although I am a true southern California girl, the Bay Area occupies a special place in my heart (went to undergrad in Napa Valley, my dad is from norcal as well). How I miss that fog!
