It's official! We are moving to California in August. FH will be accepting his phd offer at UC Davis. I'm very excited and relieved to finally know where we will be spending the next 5 years. I'm also a little nervous about the cost of living out there. Any advice from those Northern California brides is much needed! We're looking at the area of Vacaville so I can work in Napa.

    Congratulations to you and your FH! I grew up just 30 mins south of Vacaville, and it's a quiet suburban area. Much more affordable than living in Napa (and since you're from Chicago, I don't think that area of California is that much more expensive?)

    Thanks ladies!

    @JerseyJen it's a huge relief. Unfortunately this year was very competitive, so he didn't get into U of Chicago. It made the decision easier though because those were his top two.

    @Catherine&Nick and @Natassia thank you! It seemed like a cute area and it was about $1,000 cheaper per month than living in Davis.
