The Intimacy of Burning Man

The intimacy of Burning Man started immediately after I was invited to join an amazing service camp named Cafe Surprise.  Lucky for me, I got a last minute ticket to BM(only 15 mins after I reached out on FB looking for one, thanks Nan!). I immediately started getting...

The Next Chapter for Anthony and I

When we got married in Reno in 1990, I don’t think anyone thought it would last. I was 20, Anthony 26. We had lived together for a year and a half at that point. We were two young adults who had an opportunity to go to Australia for a year with the cosmetics company I...

Metastatic Breast Cancer- My New Reality

I don't think you can ever be prepared to hear the words “You Have Cancer”. We hear the word “cancer” daily, but you just hope it is not used when talking about your health. I heard these words on April 29th. In a way I wasn’t really surprised. My mom had primary...

19 years ago today, on this Groundhog Day, my little girl Sydney was born in a hospital in San Francisco. Having a child changes your life. You know it will change your life. People tell you, your life will never be the same. Even though we have no idea how it will...

I love my vendors {photographer san francisco}

One of the best things about living in San Francisco is all of the amazing artisans. I am lucky enough to work a few of them. I try to work with as many local vendors as possible, as I love being able to actually visit them and see how my things are made. I was...
