heads carolina, tales california

I’ve been singing a lot of Jo Dee Messina lately – you country music lovers who’ve heard Heads Carolina, Tales California might be able to guess why.

Since graduation, there’s been a lot going on behind the scenes of this little blog – job searching, job interviews, more home improvements and a few talks with realtors. You see, the fiancé and I fell in love with San Francisco, the city where we fell in love, and we’ve been pining to get back there since he left almost two years ago.

Well friends, we flipped a coin and tales it is.


We’re moving to San Francisco! Rob was offered a job in the Bay Area and, let me put it this way, we’ll be moving for his salary – not mine.

North Carolina has been my home for the past eight years – eight wonderful years. I’m a Boston girl born and bred but oddly enough, a country girl at heart. It’s where I moved with one of my best friends soon after college and where I met some new ones in graduate school. I’ve done a lot of growing up and calming down here over the past eight years. Needless to say, I’ll always hold North Carolina near and dear to my heart.

There are thousands of details to iron out over the course of the next 6 weeks. On top of preparing for the RD exam there’s now a townhouse to be sold, an apartment to be rented, moving estimates to be scheduled and a hundred boxes to be packed – but I couldn’t be more excited.

Feel free to sing along.

P.S. I’ll be on the hunt for new friends & running buddies in SF – so feel free to say hi if you’re in the area!
