Moving to San Francisco

Aaron and I have been kicking around the idea of moving to San Francisco for a while now, because he works there and I go to school there, and commuting from Oakland to SF every day is expensive and time consuming. So, after looking at a ton of places, Aaron saw this place at Cesar Chavez and Sanchez in Noe Valley on Friday, and when we went today so I could take a look at it and to pick up applications, the landlord invited us over to his place nearby to sign the lease when I said that I really liked it. So it's going to be ours on November 1... or a little sooner if the current tenant moves out a bit early. I'm really excited about the move and I do really like the place. The only drawback about it seems to be a lack of closet space but the back room that the current tenant uses for storage should be a good place to stash our random... stuff. Check out these pics below...

DAMN girl! That house looks awesome, and I use that term in the literal, non Surfer-dude way. I find your new house inspiring of awe. Congrats!

at first i thought you were getting a 2-bedroom 2-bath place, but then i figured it out when i saw the three kitchens.

welcome to the hood, sort of.

I don't understand, what's gonna happen to your Berkeley place? I bet you guys'll just stay in SF during the week. Wait a minute. . .! You're moving out of Berkeley, aren't you! It's sad, the end of an era. The last people I know in Berkeley are leaving. This is about as sad as when I left. But it'll be good in the City, with the rats and the prostitites.

Seriously, though, the place looks great. It's like the houses I remember from the opening and transitional scenes of "Full House." Now you'll finally be like Stephanie and Aaron'll be like Uncle Jesse. Have mercy!
