am i deranged?

Do I really want to leave this...


... for this?


Yes, that is a picture from this week, from Truckee. (Thanks to Pauline at the English Organizer for sending these pics my way!)

Am I really jumping at the chance to leave a wonderful city where...

... lemons grow on trees in the backyard...


... gourmet food trucks line up in droves all over town...


... I can harvest my own backyard tomatoes in the dead of winter...


(Hmm... notice that all of those things are food-related? Probably not a coincidence.)

... I can take a run through our own version of the Venice canals...


... I can shop at the greatest furniture mega-store in the world...


... All so that I can live in a place with none of those things, and where it looks like this...




I *think* the answer is still yes, but no way of knowing until we do it!


Snowy images from here. LA pictures are mine.

  1. Yes, I'm sorry to say, you are crazy. I love the mountains, and think the scenery is gorgeous, but hate snow and cold weather. I hate the traffic in LA, but love everything else about it. I'd be all for spending my summers in the mountains and winters in LA :)

    I have a fitness related giveaway coming up on my blog on Monday...be sure to check it out!

  2. Gulp... yes... I like to visit the snow, but I'm always pleased to come back down to milder climes. At least you're weighing the decision carefully!

  3. Ohmygosh!!!!!! That is uber exciting! I have never been to Cali but it's where we requested to move -- we got NC instead and I actually don't hate it here -- so it's totally possible for you to move into buckets-o-snow and be happy =) as long as you have the hubs and pup with ya! <3
