Living in Evansville
I was born and raised in San Francisco, California. After a few military base closures, my family had a choice to move to either San Diego or Jacksonville, Florida. We chose Florida because we thought it would be all palm trees and flamingos. While Jacksonville didn’t exactly fit the Miami Beach vision we had in mind, I grew to love the city. My partner at the time was from the Evansville area and needed to be near his family. So, we moved to Evansville — and that’s what you do for love, right?!
I love the smallness of Evansville! Coming from San Francisco and then Jacksonville, I was used to lots of traffic and the hustle-and-bustle. So I appreciate that Evansville is a little bit more quiet. I also love the people. I find everyone here is personable and welcoming. My neighbors wave! In the city, they don’t do that.
