last weekend of summer

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

On Friday I went to one of those jewelry parties – Lia Sophia – where I swore I wouldn’t buy anything. But when I won a ten dollar gift certificate for earning the queen of diamonds card during one of the “get to know the company” games, I decided to buy these earrings. I really don’t […]

is the postcard already old school?

Saturday, September 13th, 2008

It looks like I wasn’t the only one blogging about postcards yesterday! I just read on Intelligent Travel that the folks at This Just In have asked readers if they still send postcards…hundreds of responses later – it turns out many people still do.  The truth is, I love receiving them, and I even buy tons of them […]

After joining a line that spanned over three storefronts we entered […]

everywhere you look, there’s a place…

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

Yeah I saw where the Tanner’s lived…just kidding. But I did take a picture of the “Painted Ladies” at Alamo Square. But before that we walked around Haight-Ashbury. The beat movement made it’s debut on the west coast in Haight-Ashbury during the time that Allen Ginsberg moved to San Francisco in the 50’s. Today it […]
