When I moved to San Francisco back in 2001, I initially feared I made a mistake. All of my good friends were back in NYC. And it took years to build solid friendships here.
I absolutely love San Francisco now and can’t imagine living anywhere else. The ocean, the vineyards, the mountains, the redwoods, the temperate climate and friendly laid back people. What more could a girl want?
During those early days in SF, a good friend from NYC came to visit. She revealed an old ritual from her college days at Tufts. Whenever she and her friends drove into the city for a night out, she’d get so excited and say aloud “Kiss Boston” as she blew a kiss to her favorite town.
For over a decade, every time I drive back into San Francisco I pucker my lips, blow a kiss, say “Kiss San Francisco!” and feel utterly joyful to call this beautiful city my home.
