Alameda is an island town. Does it get any better than that? Yes, actually...
Not only do you have amazing views of the San Francisco skyline, you can walk the very streets of San Francisco for yourself... it's only a short subway ride away.

Dallas is a city filled with numerous places to eat and shop. Only, you'll need your car to do so. Coming from California where we relied solely on public transportation, this was quite a transition. Dallas brought the closeness of family & a dear high school friend. Justin also loved his work environment in Dallas which was a major bonus.

New York, New York
Living in New York City is the fulfillment of a childhood dream. Sometimes I think, I really do live here. Of course, there's the typical albeit wonderful things: broadway shows, high-end shopping, renown restuarants. But the things I love most? The things that are off-the-beaten path. The things you learn from actually living here... like how to buy groceries for the week and that the best muffins come from the butcher shop and that the best bookstores are the ones you stumble upon. This city has made an imprint on my heart like none other... surprise, surprise.
