It all started when...

my son, Scott moved to LA for a federal appellate clerkship, met and married Andie and bought a house in Studio City. We started discussing that possibility of me moving to the LA area. Then, Hillary and Mike moved to San Francisco and got married this past summer in Brooklyn.

So in November 2016 I gave notice at my Newark Academy teaching job and finished in June 2017. (Newark Academy is an independent school in northern NJ. I spent this past summer working with James Worrell, a photographer who is taking my job. And I spent the summer getting ready for my move. 

Driving cross country has always been a dream of mine. With the help of Google maps and a fantastic app called BringFido, I spent many happy hours planning my route.

George is my 11 year old golden retriever who has been with me through the most difficult as well as some of the most joyous years of my life. I call him "my main man." He loves being in the car. I knew he would make a most excellent travel buddy.
