Saratoga First Impressions

Wednesday, December 15th, 2004 · No Comments

One year ago today I wrote a pretty comprehensive blog entry about my first impressions of Saratoga Springs. I had just returned from a three-day trip to the town that’s now been my home for nearly a full year. Time really flies when you’re having fun.

Everything I wrote in that post about having a good feeling about moving here has proven true. Saratoga Springs really is an awesome town and the perfect place to live.

The past year has brought not only a plethora new friends, new jobs, time with Jen’s side of the family (all things we hoped to achieve when we relocated here), but the opportunity to reach our financial goals quicker than we had imagined (buying a house, paying off debt). And those are just the tangible things that have come with our having moved here.

San Francisco aside (and for its own, very unique reasons) — we miss terribly all our California friends and family — there’s really no place like Saratoga. We’ve had way more fun over the past year than I could have predicted. It’s a relaxing lifestyle. Not spending our days commuting in the Bay Area traffic has surely added months to our life expectancies.

All in all, life is very good. We are fortunate. I could ask for little more (aside from the ability to teleport between coasts and enough time and money to travel the world at will).
