Academy of Science

The Academy is my favorite place on a cold day. The aquarium rivals Monterey Bay and the steamy rain forest makes you feel like you're in Hawaii. I will miss living a few blocks away. There's nothing like it and my daughter loves the playroom. Love to the people who put it together.

Bucket List#1 Napa Valley

We recently took advantage of Napa Valley being only an hour away. It seems hundreds of miles away when you are in wine country. It was sunny, calming and the food delicious. The day was a gorgeous summer one and perfect for a picnic and wine tasting on the lush grounds of some special wineries. Napa and Sonoma are on our bucket list and will not be scratched off until we leave. There is so much to explore up there.

View of the Moma

This is the lovely view from the Metreon in Yerba Buena Gardens of the Museum of Modern Art (Moma). Not bad for a movie theater view. The building is gorgeous from afar and even better inside.

I love how even this touristy movie theater has compost bins. It inspires me to compost again. I gave up after a battle with gnats, but will try again.

Clarion Alley Murals

There is great deal of art in the city, and not always in the museums. This colorful alley off Valencia Street caught my eye. It was a drab alley and the artists brought some light to this part of the city. It is a unique creative outlet for some local artists and I believe the building owners had the right idea of how to deal with graffiti.

Mission Dolores

This is the church door of the Mission Dolores. We were sitting below this and I almost missed the beauty of the details, until our heads turned up.

San Francisco- love to you

It is time to embark on a new kind of blog. This is the first post in a new series of love for San Francisco. It is a reminder that I should be thankful for where I am in life and to try to live more in the moment. I hope you love where you are right now.
