Heads Carolina, Tails California


Well that’s a loaded title and has caused a lot of angst for me.  Ten years ago, my husband and I left the Bay Area for an easier and healthier lifestyle. Stupid us, who thought our kids wouldn’t be able to afford to live the lifestyle they were raised in. I know that we can’t foresee what our kids can or cannot do. We were going to provide a new area, easily more affordable without all the blood, sweat and tears of Silicon Valley in California.  So fast forward to today. We are relocated in Chapel Hill, NC., … with our cat!! Right now our 3 kids live in various parts of Cali and we are all able to visit often. Presently, I feel very fortunate for my life in Carolina, but I also know I am a California girl. Can we live happily on two coasts? Many people do it. We’ll see. Here’s a picture from Fort Point located under the Golden Gate Bridge,  which never ever gets old.
