I'm a physical therapist working in Vallejo and my husband Joe is a software engineer working in San Francisco. We moved here from Minnesota in 2012 to escape the freezing winters and humid summers to this magical land of perfect weather year round.
I take Gia (the dog) for a run through the neighborhood most days after work. Weeknights are pretty quiet at our apartment, spent reading, talking, eating, and watching episodes of our favorite shows like Parks and Recreation, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, or the Daily Show. We drink a lot of tea.
We spend most of our weekends exploring the bay area, hiking, cooking, or checking out all the great restaurants in the area. When we're up for an adventure, we try to check out the rest of California or drive to a beach because our dog loves to ride the waves.
Hosting guests on Airbnb has been such a joy. Oh, and I absolutely Oakland!
