A Leap To San Francisco

 I'm sure most people have heard that Colin and I moved to San Francisco! He got a job, three days after he graduated, to work as an Enivornmental Planner for Transcon Environmental. We packed most of our things, sold the rest, and after two weeks we made the 12 hour move to San Francisco on May 27th. Without any complications (besides a fickle tarp), we made it to California safely.
 Within a week we found a place to live, with 3 other people in a 3 bedroom, one bathroom place in the Mission District.It has the classic bay windows, fireplace, built in hutch, and even a gorgeous courtyard with a friendly cat. 
 It's been almost three weeks since we've moved in and we just recently got a bed. We were sleeping on tatami mats (basically bamboo mats) since we moved in. But on Sunday we were ready for an actual bed. So we went to Berkeley and ended up getting an amazing pillow top mattress. Colin was pushing for a Full but I convinced him to get a Queen. It was worth the investment. The bed sits  waist height for me so I literally get to jump into bed at night. Also, my phone is broken :(. But have no fear, my phone insurance is covering it! And that means I get a brand new Nokia Windows phone. I feel like I'm actually cool that I'll have a touch phone and not a BlackBerry.
 We've done a lot of wandering around San Francisco and I've been searching for a job (which is a lot harder than I thought it would be).  We visited Coit Tower, the beach, golden gate park and have walked around our neighbourhood a bit. I've also been able to visit my sister Becky and her family! I even got to go to Isaiah's Kindergarten Graduation! (Newsflash: stay tuned for my next post).
 Other than that we've been enjoying San Francisco and Colin love his new job. We need to put together a Bucket List of things to do in the city. Which hopefully we'll be here for a long time :)
