This also means that Summer is flying by and it will almost be time for the brisk winds and falling amber leaves of Autumn. But for the meantime, we are enjoying what’s left of the Summer weather!

Walk the Talk by Kate Ogata
After living in San Francisco for almost five years now, I’ve gained a greater appreciation for walking.  When I used to line the ‘burbs’, driving was a part of everyday life — today, I can probably go a full week without hopping into a car.  READ MORE

I call that a win.  READ MORE
