Liberty and Prosperity: Welcome to the Garden State

I’ve been keeping something from you. Matt and I are no longer New Yorkers.

On Friday, after living in Manhattan for nearly 7 years, Matt and I decided to make the big leap across the Hudson to Hoboken, New Jersey.

Although we have only spent a handful of nights in our new place, I think we are already adjusting to live outside of the city. We’ve done our first grocery shopping trip with our new car. I’ve been to a target. And we even did a track workout at the local public high school. Yes – I’m definitely loving this new-found city-lite life.

For those of you that don’t know much about Hoboken, here’s a taste.

Streets lined with beautiful brownstones

And even though New Jersey gets a bad rep, I’m starting to come around

This guy is our Governor

Yup. New Jersey is looking pretty good! Especially if this happens in NYC.
