Big news …
We’re moving from California to Washington!! I’m equal parts sad, nervous and excited for this new adventure.
I don’t know how to put into words what SLO County means to me. If you know me at all, you know it’s more than just a place.
It’s also independence, college, finding myself, adulting, career, newspapers, people, friendships, community, starting over, motherhood, finding myself again, beauty, home.
If it was solely up to me, I’d never leave.
But Bowen and I made a pact 12 years ago that we would live where I wanted first (Paso) to build my journalism career and then live where he wanted to after (Bay Area or Seattle).
And since I’m a stubborn Scorpio and he’s a supportive Taurus, I’m 10 years overdue on my end of the bargain. 😅
So it’s time for me to take his hand to lead us into a new chapter in the PNW. You know what they say: always keep your promises. ✌🏻
But … I told Bowen the second he dies, I’m moving back to Paso, 🤣😇.
We are moving at the beginning of August, then house hunting in the stretch of towns between Seattle and Tacoma.
You guys know I love you. My community: the mamas, friends, family, sources who followed me from the Trib, people I just met and people I’ve known forever. Friends who I only know online. Everyone. Thank you for all the support and for all the fun.
Part of the magic of being a blogger is I’m not going away 🌞 I’ll keep my blog and pages going.
Ps. Will you still follow me when we aren’t in CA anymore? 😭 While I’ve learned we can’t predict anything, I do plan to keep this space the same – our adventures. In life, in travel, wherever we are.
And I’ll still take you along for all of it. 🧡.
