i’m not all that familiar with the ins and outs of long island, as we’ve only visited there twice. however, i am attempting to get familiar with the area via internet browsing while i watch tv in the evening. as we speak i have the dodgers game on in the background, while i type away.

according to various websites, the village that we’ll be living in (garden city) is apparently only about 30 minutes from the beach and 30 minutes from “the City“… Sounds a little too good to be true! Apparently, it’s true.

marissa and I have spent the past 4 years (for marissa, most of her life) living along the rocky mountains, but have never really taken advantage of them. our first two years in boulder, we’d drive up to copper and snowboard a few times a season, but other than that…we’ve remained at lower elevations.

what we’re headed to, reminds us of what we loved about los angeles. when marissa and I were first married, we lived about 20 minutes from the city (in pasadena) and about 30 minutes from santa monica (beach).

we really love the energy of large cities and lots of people. new york metro area has around 20 million people within a 90-minute drive. a plethora of people!

i’m also more of a beach bum than i am a mountain man. i’ve lived close to the coast a couple different times in my life, and love it! there is something therapeutic about sitting on the beach, hearing the rhythm of the waves breaking on the shore, while enjoying the sun or moon setting over the water (depending on which coast).

i’m looking forward to our 30/30 opportunity!

  1. I am so excited! I can’t wait to take advantage of being that close to everything! So… when are we going to a Broadway show? How about a week from Friday? : ) We could if we wanted to… that is CRAZY!
