First post of the year, and I want to thank everyone who has visited my blog. I’ve had such kind comments and conversations with amazing people through this blog that I don’t think I could have reached otherwise. And I am excited for the future-
I mad the announcement on Twitter, but have yet to here. And after much toiling, I decided the best decision for me was to move. I now live in San Francisco instead of Las Vegas – it was a pretty difficult decision because of the routine I had set up there. But since I am not even from there originally, and the reasons I went there in the first place never fleshed out, I felt that after five years I had had my fill. I will definitely miss some things like the conveniences, my former job, everything downtown, and the people I love there. But not the city’s douche-bags, junkies, bad drivers, local government, awful laws, hopelessness, among other little things. It was a great city while it lasted, and will be visiting here and there. So I think I’ll be tri-city for a bit between SF, Vegas, and when I visit my family in Southern California. Just bear with me in this new adventure as I figure things out!
I took the above photo today while just wandering around the city by myself – being in Las Vegas always felt like being a tourist in your own city; being in San Francisco is that times ten. I really feel like I’m just going to go home at the end of the week and things will be back to how they were. But I am super excited to get used to all of these new places and meet new people, and feel like a local again. Yes yes, all of this after I had gone through the trouble of showing you all where I lived. After the photos I had to dismantle and paint the whole thing! The place had a very modern charm – where we are now has a distinct SF vintage quality to it, so I’ll try to share photos in the future when we figure things out.
Our NYE was quite uneventful. We kind of wandered around the streets trying to meet up with people to only lose track of time, we missed any sort of midnight count down. And really only got to take a few photos. These two

Diana is supposed to start blogging here with me if she decides to figure it out ;)So far the biggest adjustment has been switching from the 24hr lifestyle in Vegas to normal operating hours of everywhere else (you don’t know how awesome it is to go grocery store shopping at 1am until you’ve lived it). And going from driving everywhere to lots of walking and using public transportation – I love it!
(PS. Because of the move I had to postpone announcing the Kenneth Cole giveaway. Congrats to Nicolette, I drew numbers and you won! I’ll be contacting you shortly)
How was your NYE? Have you ever been to San Francisco?
