I started out the year as a newly engaged woman who was trying to plan a wedding and sell her first home as a real estate agent. All the while, we were packing up our San Francisco apartment for a transatlantic move to Switzerland for my fiancé’s job. Jon left for Switzerland at the end of February and I continued wedding planning and working. I joined him at the end of March and was immediately thrown into a ‘real’ winter. This California girl was not prepared.
