Ode to Shayne

So my lovely friend and neighbor Shayne has had about enough of the land of sunshine, plastic body parts, and underdeveloped etiquette. It's time to return to the Northeast where people actually read books, discuss current events as a way of life, go to church, and wear cashmere! Get out those pearls and winter coats, girl - you're going home!

Meanwhile, while I know isn't much about San Diego that Shaynie is going to miss, I think there might be just a few things she just might...

TOP TEN THINGS SHAYNE WON’T MISS ABOUT SD

10. Flip flops
9. Walking Max across the Autobahn to pee (9th Ave)
8. Her personal trainer here
7. Nosy neighbors (excluding me, of course; she likes it when I'm nosy)
6. The parking garage of Discovery
5. Having her fabulous winter clothes packed in boxes
4. Missing Boston, NY, and Philly
3. The general population of San Diego
2. The horrific dating scene in San Diego
1. Legal Arts

TOP TEN THINGS SHAYNE WILL MISS ABOUT SD

10. Sunshine and pool time at the Big D
9. Her dog nephew, Baci
8. The red kitchen
7. Spinning classes with Mer
6. Dog Beach at Coronado
5. The Rock Church
4. Café Chloe
3. Pink nights
2. The Life Sucker 4000
1. Her SD friends, especially ME!

San Diego (and I) will miss you, Shayne! Best of luck in your journey - in a few months, your life will be so drastically different and you're going to love it!! I can't wait to see how it all unfolds and will be supporting you from afar.

Love, Mer xoxox
