30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 13

8. Somewhere you’d like to move or visit.

Mendocino, California or the surrounding coastal area.

It's 3-4 hours from my hometown and I've spent many fun weekends here camping and staying at beach house rentals. Stanley and I got married in Mendocino.
In addition to the proximity to the ocean, I love the fern/redwood forests, many state parks and campgrounds, awesome glass beach, shopping, charming inns, wine festival, terrific restaurants, and the general hippy/artsy vibe. It would be a great place to be an artist, if I wanted to step up my painting.
I'd like to visit there more often (I think I've been back once since the wedding in '05) and if I could move there, that would be great. A home on the cliffs overlooking the ocean would be amazing but I would also be thrilled with a house less than a mile from the water. There are a lot of question marks about how this could come about, but I feel that if we really make it a priority, it will happen. But if it doesn't, that's okay with me.

I hope it always stays the same, as in these pictures.
