I have been disappointed in elections before. When we moved to San Francisco in 2007, the following year they passed Proposition 8.

The new house is a lot smaller than the old one so we didn’t put up a big tree this year. Instead I picked up a lighted tree from Restoration Hardware. Before adding the ornaments, I put Ava’s toys on the tree. What do you think? I am ridiculously sentimental when it comes to […]
Merry Christmas! Jon and I picked out an outfit for Ava for Christmas. She wasn’t too happy to wear it for long, though. This was the happiest image that I got. My father, step-mother, and aunt came for the holiday so Ava probably felt like a movie star in front of the paparazzi. There were […]
The house is coming along. I haven’t finished organizing the kitchen, but it’s good enough to be photographed. Here’s the view of the large cabinets and the sink. There’s a lot more space in this house and I’ve been able to bring out some of my old plates. I love it. I can arrange sushi […]
