After a weeklong trip to the mid-west, we are back in Santa Barbara. Visiting Wisconsin was great and during this most recent trip, I was convinced that I wanted to move to and settle in beautiful Southeastern Wisconsin with its changing seasons, genuinely friendly people and mix of forests, farms and lakes.
The morning after our return to SB, I went for a run on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. During the entire run, all I could think was WOW. The beauty of Santa Barbara was astounding that morning. When I flip through running magazines and see pictures of runners along beautiful trails with mountain backdrops, I think to myself, “I wanna be there.” And I am! Only better because not only am I on a trail with mountains in the background, but also the ocean is just a stride, trip and a tumble away.
After my run, I told F that in two and a half years, when he’s done with his residency and we move to somewhere else, he’ll have to take me away from SB kicking and screaming. Thank goodness I’ve got two and a half years left to enjoy paradise.
