When I set off for college in 2006, I had no idea that I would return to my hometown five years later.
The story is simple - I went to college in Boston, landed a "dream job" at a winery in Sonoma County, and suddenly realized that despite the appeal of the always-on-the-move urban lifestyle, there is something special happening in Redding, California.
