We’re moving to Reno! This is the most bittersweet post I will probably ever write, but it is time for a new chapter. A lot of you guessed this when I announced I was pregnant, and so I figured we might as well let the cat out of the bag. There is no particular reason why I wanted to tell you except my own personal denial. I am actually crying as I sit here typing this.

We’re Moving to Reno
The Bay Area has been home to me since 2004 and I have lived everywhere from Santa Clara to San Francisco and so many places in between. My entire life is here except for my family and my business partner, and at this stage of life, those are the two most important things to me.
I can’t imagine raising a child without my Mama nearby and we rented a house only 8 minutes from my parents. We already rented a house and we finally have a guest room so that Joe’s family can come as often as they want, and we will have a place for friends to stay when they visit! While I believe San Francisco is the best city in the world, it has really been letting me down lately. These are things I can’t control, and the main reason that I will be okay leaving. I don’t want to get into all the negatives about the city because it will always be my second home. Reno is safer, more affordable, and more the pace of life that I need right now. I am so excited to not have to stress about parking or traffic!
Emily and I have been working on so many big things behind the scenes, and this move will make all of those things possible. I am excited to be able to show you guys a house I’m not embarrassed of, let you get to know my parents better, and be able to work face to face with Em every single day. Joe is going to start working for the family business, so it will be such a big career shift for both of us.
I am going to miss my friends, Joe’s family, Barry’s, Hillstone and Shannon SO much. But you better believe I will be back for every single 49er game – because that’s what the Faithful do! As sad as we are to leave, we are so excited for what’s to come and to raise this baby in the place where I grew up.
Congratulations on your pregnancy and your decision to move back to Reno! I’m sure you’re parents are thrilled to be close to you and their new grand baby! My daughter just started at the U of Nevada at Reno! We know very little about Reno so hope you’ll post on occasion areas of interest in the area as well as fashion! All my best to you and your husband!!
I’m so so sad your leaving
I grew up in Reno too. Wishing you all the very best!
wow! Congrats on your move, we will miss you here in the Bay Area! Best wishes on your new ventures!
Thank you for sharing. There is nothing better than being close to family especially your mom when you have a baby. Enjoy your new home!
