Ok, besides our family dogs growing up and Nala, this may be my favorite dog I've ever met.
I met this cutie in Dolores Park in 2013. I thought I wrote down her owner's email address correctly, but either he is frightened of me or I missed a letter, because he has not responded to my requests to hang with this dog again or connect with his breeder.Read More
Can you believe the Summer of Love was already 50 years ago?
The de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park is hosting a special exhibit to celebrate the summer of 1967. So much history in SF that summer!Read More
Look at this face! I love a big furry lazy dog. I saw this cutie while walking around the Marina. He was so chill, he barely moved. Not sure who his owners are-I was tempted to bring him home! So cute.Read More
It's that time of year again! May, sunshine, springtime, and the SF Decorator Showcase.
If you don't live in SF, you probably have something similar in your town. Once a year, they choose a home and choose the top decorators in the area to each design one roomRead More
I noticed this thing on a walk.......interesting, huh? Gotta love SF!Read More
Jane is a great coffee shop/restaurant in Pac Heights in SF. People go here for a cozy lunch with a friend or to do some work in the morning. Sit downstairs in the hustle & bustle or.....Read More
Acai bowls. A healthy breakfast or snack.
I met my friend Lauren at Basik Cafe for an afternoon snack on a rainy day. This spot on Polk Street in Russian Hill is good! Plan on waiting in line. We even saw a beautiful Bernese Mountain dog out front, which is always a good sign!Read More
There's something about this paint color that I like. It's almost purple, but also a grey. I noticed it while on a walk the other day.Read More

Our favorite coat designer, Lan Jaenicke. Also local to SF. I met Lan 3 years ago through the Edgewood fundraiser. Most of my friends have since purchased one of her beautiful cashmere coats. They are an investment, but most people are planning to buy a second or a third.Read More
Yes, that is a rainbow you see beside the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a lovely sight! When I arrived in Marin, I saw a double rainbow! A sign from above that I am exactly where I'm supposed to be right now. Thankful for these moments!
I noticed this on a walk in the morning.Read More
Somehow SF allows people to bring their dogs into bars. It's really great!
I noticed this building while on a walk one morning. Don't you love the detail in the SF architecture? I like the soft pastel colors against the bright blue sky. We see a lot of these rounded windows in our alluring city. Thankful for beauty all around!
Here is a creative use of tile! An entrance to a Mexican restaurant. I noticed this one day on my walk home from work. How clever!
Following the "I have this thing with floors" theme, I included my feet for perspective.
People in SF do weird things in our garages. My neighbor has a garage full of weights and uses it as a gym. Another sweet man down the street uses it as his artist studio. They both leave the garage doors open, and you can see what they're up to.
This photo above really made me smile, as you can imagine. I was on a walk in Inner Richmond in a residential area, and stumbled upon this wonderous sight. A garage door open, I hear some French music, then I see the ladies at work with peonies. Such a beautiful moment!
The florist is Flowers Claire Marie. I have not worked with them, but their website is gorgeous. Some photos below of their work. Thankful for this special memory which I took as a sign that I am exactly where I'm supposed to be in life right now.
