So maybe it took me longer than the promised two days to write this (sorry!), but I have made the big decision to attend Berkeley's Haas School of Business.  After talking everything over with my better half, we decided we're moving to Berkeley in August.  East Bay here we come!!!  I kept trying to talk myself out of Berkeley and into Chicago, but I decided to trust my instincts, follow my gut, etc.  Berkeley just felt right.

I will be forever grateful to Chicago for seeing what they did in me and for their generous offer of admission.  It has been a privilege to get to know people like Rose and Marco.  She a total force of nature -- inspiring, tireless, and an incredible ambassador for the Chicago Booth brand.  He contagiously funny, caring and most importantly, very very Italian.  I look forward to keeping in touch with both of them (Ci vediamo a new york quest'estate).

It's amazing, but I really feel like so much weight and pressure has been lifted off my shoulders.  It feels great to have made a decision and know where we'll be starting our life a few months from now.  In the meantime, we're marooned in Florida (rough, right?!) until Wed due to weather and the resulting flight cancellations.  Then back to NYC, lots of dinners with friends, winding down at work, and getting ready for our trip, which is the purpose of this blog after all.  Don't worry, we're getting there...24 days until we leave!!!!!!!!!!!!!
