The Fluff Report: Hometown Love

August 5, 2013

Hometown Love




When I graduated high school a few years back, I swore I'd never live in Rochester again. I wanted a bigger city, more adventure, more culture. So I did it. I moved to Greenville, NC. (Go Pirates!) Ok, so not exactly big city but definitely a culture  shock  change. From there I lived in Boston, New Mexico, Tennessee and settled in Los Angeles. I loved everything about the beach, sunshine and Hollywood. Life was good until it wasn't. I was 26, a doctor, and still borrowing rent money from the parents. I was talking to my Mom and best friend (who happened to live in Rochester) 3 times a day. I suddenly realized that I would rather be sitting in front of a fire in a snowstorm drinking wine with my best friends than walking on the beach alone. So the impulsive little lady that I am, I packed my car and drove cross country to move back to Rochester. It was only going to be a short time until I saved money to move to Atlanta. But of course love got in the way and here I am perfectly happy in...Rochester. 

I must say there are so many great things that I love about this city. Sure you can sit around and complain about the fact that it seems like winter 8 months out of the year, or you could...take up skiing? It's all about finding where to go and what to do. I always look at rocville.com. It's a great new resource for discovering the places to be when in the ROC.  For instance, I had no idea we had a Road Truck Rodeo once a month which is a huge culinary trend right now. If you are local, you must check this website, started by a husband and wife who moved back to Rochester after being gone for many, many years away. Sound familiar? 

I'm curious...do you still live in your hometown or have you moved on?
