6 weeks until San Diego

Posted on

San Diego!!! I am all smiles and exclamation points when I think about spending the summer in San Diego. I’ve never even been. I’ve just heard so many fantastic things about it and the one thing people always say about it is “they have great weather.” And don’t even get me started about “Top Gun” and all the hotties at Miramar. I’ve lived in NYC almost 7 years and it feels like 15. This winter nearly killed me. Record snowfall, two months of constant illness and schlepping a two year old around the city in slush and freezing temps. Oh and my darling daughter doesn’t particularly care for sleep so I basically haven’t had a good night’s sleep in three years! I’m ready for a change of scenery and to have a fun few months exploring southern California!

So how did all this come about? Alex has started a new job with a company based in San Diego. He will be commuting back and forth until Sophie and I join him at the end of May. The plan is for us to return at the end of August and Alex will build a team here in the city and Sophie will start official preschool! Lots to look forward to in the fall but for now it’s all about June, July and August in San Diego.

I have quite a few things to do before we get on that plane on May 31 and head west. There is a car to be shipped, boxes to be packed and trips to Disneyland to be planned! Oh and I still need to find a place to live. Just minor details. Stay tuned as I document our adventures over the next few months. Thanks for joining me.
