So it's pretty common knowledge that I recently got married and moved to a new town. I love my husband very much and I'm happy working on settling into his house which is now our house (and yes, it took me forever to actually call it "our" house)
But there's one thing I don't like about moving and getting married.
I miss my friends.
I had (and have) a really cool group of friends in Rochester. We hung out frequently, sometimes just us girls, sometimes the whole crew. We had craft nights, game nights, margaritas nights, Murder Mystery parties, Halloween parties, Superbowl nights, and just regular old hang out times. Its been awesome and I am so thankful to have such a great group of people to hang out with. We always have a great time and tons of laughs are had.
And I miss that now that I've moved. Granted, Rochester isn't that far away, but it's still much harder to plan things and it can be a pain to have to face an hour drive home at the end of the night. And mid-week get togethers are pretty much out when two hours of driving is involved.
So... suggestions. How do you meet people roughly your age in a new town, a small town? I work from home, so I don't have co-workers to get to know, or to introduce me to people. Matt has some great co-workers, but they're all guys. I need some girls to hang out with. And some people that have nothing to do with the sound industry. My one good friend here sometimes freelances for Matt's company, so when he's working a really big event or a long weekend, chances are she is too.
So, bottom line, I've been married for a few weeks, and living here for a little bit and I'm on a mission to meet people!
