Elizabeth Chatterton moved here for college, and she was less than thrilled. She stayed here for her college career and finds herself now on the brink of leaving for a new job.

My relationship with Buffalo can be described as an unplanned love affair. 

 

I never meant to fall for the place - but I did. And I fell hard.

 

While there are many things to look forward to, I still adore Buffalo so much that leaving is very bittersweet. In the midst of so much uncertainty and change, I’m taking comfort in the one thing that I know for sure:

I came to Buffalo for an education and Buffalo gave me the education of a lifetime.

Now, her wildly popular blog is catching wind with people in Western New York, and it's ironic how a once-stranger to Buffalo can remind us why we love it so much here.
