Some BIG news!

So Christian and I have some monumental news…quite a few things actually...

1. Well it’s no secret that we’re getting married in Mexico in only a few short months. That’s old news ;). But what is exciting is that it’s right around the corner. Friends and family are nearly all booked. Vendors are finalized. Stationary is ordered. Rings are bought. And we cannot wait to lounge on the beach in the tiny town of Los Barriles, swim in the Sea of Cortez and celebrate our wedding with our closest friends and family! Also happy to report that friend and fellow blogger Liz will be our wedding photog :)

And our next bit of news...

2. Christian and I are leaving Amsterdam! This move will be so bittersweet. Amsterdam has always been my favorite city and has always been good to me—besides the rain ofcourse ;)—and I’m so sad to be leaving it. However, we’re MOVING TO CALIFORNIA! San Francisco bound, baby! Christian works in Technology so moving to San Francisco was always an idea we knew would be a great move career-wise. I’m so excited to be able to rediscover California after being away for 5 years and I cannot wait to discover a new city with Christian. And we’ve heard that Amsterdam and San Francisco have pretty similar vibes. We are looking forward to living in sunny California, exploring nearby areas such as Yosemite, Napa, the Central Coast, etc., enjoying all the San Francisco has to offer and being a bit closer to my family and friends. At least for the next few years until we decide where to settle down.

3. This last bit of news I’ll save until later this week…stayed tuned!

I'll be honeymooning in California in October - 3 week road trip, baby!

We've never been and are so excited for all the fun things that await us in the U.S. of A (we're London-based).

If you have one top CALIFORNIA tip do let me know!
