we're moving to california!

• 42 comments •


Back in December, Alex was flown to California for interviews (and sightseeing) and was offered a job in San Francisco! We're so excited and I'm extremely proud of him and am constantly in awe of the enthusiasm he has for his work.

We've been sitting on this info. for so long and are thrilled to finally share it. Because we learned about this at the beginning of the season, I completely skipped my predictably dour winter mood and have just enjoyed (my possibly last!) winter. It's also why I kinda abandoned most social media... gotta get as many hugs as I can before Alex leaves (in two weeks). We're going to be apart for awhile, which is going to be rough. I have some obligations in Montreal and need to start thinking about selling our home before scheduling the movers. My plans are still up in the air but I may be going back and forth until 2014.

We don't know many people in SF; send me an email if you live in the area!

  10. Rats! I just moved back to the Midwest after spending two years in Reno - only 3-4 hours from SF so I spent a lot of time there. You're going to love it. Make sure you spend some time at Tahoe, too.

  11. Husband is in SF for work this week and I'm so incredibly jealous... We're moving too.. We're heading to Edmonton this Summer, not quite as exciting as SFO, I have to say. But it's a change, and an adventure, I'm always up for those.
    I'm really happy for you two <3

  14. this is so exciting! san francisco is one of my favorite cities, and all i craved whilst pregnant was a salty bowl of clam chowder in a bread bowl from fisherman's wharf (but sadly, shellfish wasn't on the menu for me). enjoy!

  16. Yay! I'm so excited for you!!! This is the best news!!! I adore San Francisco and would love to live there! It's probably my favorite US city. We might be able to hang out in real life after all, because we will live somewhere in the west (not Utah/more like CA, WA, or OR).
