San Francisco: 3 Months.

Three months ago today... I'd sold or donated what seemed like all of my belongings, packed the remainder in a bright yellow truck, and driven 641 miles from Boise, ID to San Francisco, CA. At this point in the day... I was staring at boxes and boxes of clothing next to a closet that was about 1/2 the size of the one I'd left behind and listening to what seemed like 8 billion cars zooming past my new apartment. And if we're being honest, I was terrified.

Thank goodness I've had my best friend by my side through this adventure. He has made this the easiest it could have been. Like any change, there have been good days and bad days... but at the end of every day I am so thankful to be here.

No matter where I am, I can catch a view that takes my breath away. The fog rolling over the city, a gorgeous clear day at the top of Fillmore, the eucalyptus trees in the park, a peak of the Golden Gate over the tops of homes, the skyline twinkling on a fogless night, or an incredible old Victorian... I can't believe I call this city home.

Happy Anniversary, SF!

ALSO... Living by the bay is *much* different than living in the desert heat of Boise, so I am going through my closet and clearing out things that I just don't need or use here. I've put quite a few new items up for sale on Threadflip, and will be adding more over the coming weeks. Happy shopping!!

    1. It is an adventure, for sure! :) I think there is a quote that says you only need 20 seconds of insane courage, and then great things will happen!
