Newest Nor Cal Resident

I am now officially a resident of Berkeley California!  Last night I made the 7 hour drive up by myself in my Prius.  There is nothing like making the drive to your new home.  I was excited, scared, anxious, and a little sad.  Definitely a whirlwind of emotions throughout the long drive.  Today I walked to a local coffee shop around the block from my new house.  I love that I can simply walk from place to place.   Berkeley has so much character, from bookstores to cafes to record stores and cottage style homes.  I can't wait to start getting to know this city, as well as San Francisco, and blogging about along the way.


  1. Nice! Berkeley has always seemed like a great culture filled town from tv. I want to go there at some point to check it out.

    Congrats on the move!
