Erica and I love to be happy, warm, and with each other. We have lived in Chicago for over three years and within that time, we have been very happy and we have loved being with each other very much. We have not, however, been warm.

We have had fun in the Windy City and we'll be leaving with many fond memories. We were able to explore and go out for adventures and we got to stay at home and cuddle while it snowed outside. We fell in love with our neighborhood and we adore our apartment. But, it's cold and it's time to move on.

Of course, the frigid weather isn't our only reason for moving. Chicago is a tough city. We've had plenty of struggles and there are aspects of this place that we'd like to escape. For example, the insanely high and violent crime rate is despairing. We've been too close to a shooting and we've come home to our apartment ripped apart and robbed. I worry for my home and I don't want anything to happen to the one I love.

When our lease is up in July, we're heading out west! We've chosen sunny San Diego to be our new home. It looks beautiful and full of promise. It looks warm! 

San Diego was ranked as the 20th safest city in America in 2013 by  Business InsiderSan Diego gets more sun in winter than in summer, with over 260 sunny days per year!

It's going to take a lot to move across the country. We are planning and we are saving. I know that we can do it. I'm asking for your help in this campaign. The money raised by your generosity will go towards the many aspects of the move. (Uhaul, gas, possible storage, apartment searching, apartment applications and deposits, utility set up, furniture, other necessities, and buying a car because it's California... to name a few costs.)

Thank you very much,

Jesse
