As I mentioned here, Blake and I were in New York this past weekend, touring the city and looking for a new place to live. After a whirlwind weekend, I am excited to say that we landed a place and I couldn’t be happier. I can hardly believe it, but we’ll be New Yorkers in a matter of weeks! Lease is signed, and we found ourselves a cute little one bedroom in lower Chelsea, just blocks from Chelsea Market, the High Line and tons of fantastic restaurants and bars. Amazing location aside, one of the major perks of our new place is it has four closets. Yep, FOUR CLOSETS! The possibilities are endless, and I cannot wait.

Thanks for all of your kind words and support this past week and for following along with me. With just about two weeks left in San Francisco I’m embracing non-freezing temperatures, visiting my favorite spots, and starting to pack my life away in boxes. I cannot believe it is all really happening… NYC, here we come!
