Getting settled in San Diego!

Sunday, February 7, 2016

Hello friends and family!

Since we last wrote when we decided to leave Bullhead City Arizona after graduation, we have spent the last month moving to San Diego.

We researched San Diego for a long time. We visited a few times and finally after a job interview in San Bernardino decided we had to make it work in San Diego. 

We feel like we were always meant to end up here. Everything we love is here: 70 miles of beaches, mountains, hiking, shopping (Sprouts, Ikea, tons of thrift stores), and culture.

We packed our apartment into a 10 x 10 storage unit and rented a cottage on for three weeks. The cottage was very cozy and the hosts were super cool!

We both got jobs quickly through a staffing company and we're able to jump right into the workforce. At the moment I am working in an amazing office doing property management assistance with great co workers. We had to get used to the commute and making sure we grocery shop on the weekends so we are able to spend time at home after work.

We got an apartment and moved our belongings from Bullhead to San Diego on New Years Eve. Over the last two months we have been to Bullhead four times which takes six hours to get to.

We have been so busy, today has been the first day that we have had time to sit still. We have had to travel each weekend either to Bullhead or to North LA for a memorial service. In December we lost one of our best friends and it has been really hard to process. Not a day goes by that we say "it doesn't seem real".

We have had our other besties over to visit on Christmas which was awesome. We finally made time to do touristy stuff.

We hope to have friends over to stay often and once we are more settled we plan to visit back home in NC.
It has been a long month but at the end of the day we are both super happy with our life here and feel like it was well worth all of the hassle. 2016 is over, thankfully, and we are looking forward to all that 2017 has to offer!
