Although it may be Sunday, I still have a daunting to-do list on this ‘day of rest.’ My printer is slowly running out of ink and my laundry basket is flirting with the idea of explosion but I have made a kick-ass cup of coffee this morning and my bed is perfectly made (so, no jumping back under the covers). Should I forget what the outside world looks like as I slave away at my desk, I’ll return to this picture of Ocean Beach I snapped yesterday on my way to breakfast.

Ah, Monday Monday! I am slowly figuring out my morning routine. Brush my teeth. Wash my face. Get dressed. Coffee. Commute. Coffee. Work. It goes a little bit like that. I have in fact embraced the chaotic AM muni rush, as I am now a regular member myself and complaining would just take too much energy. With my iPod, my book, and a camera I am good to go. In just an hour from now I will be back on the train to complete my roundtrip. Those of you with a car, I am at times jealous (!) but for the meantime will make the best of my window seat.

I am overjoyed to have become an official resident of San Francisco! I am just a few blocks uphill from Ocean Beach and conveniently within walking distance of the metro. You can even see the Golden Gate Bridge from our living room balcony.
As glorious as the end result is, the process of moving is beyond stressful. It wasn’t until this weekend that I felt our home become ours. This may or may not have something to do with the fact that I have finally unpacked each and every box (so now what little front lawn we have is completely taken over by cardboard scraps). Maybe it is because I’ve decorated with miniature Christmas lights and hung my grandmother’s paintings in the common rooms. This morning I managed to pick out the most perfect pumpkin for carving tomorrow night. Meanwhile, sunflowers are still in high spirits, making decorating my kitchen table as simple as can be.

Having just returned from a backpacking extravaganza abroad, I figured it wise to get back on my blog. I promise to write more and share a few of the thousands of pictures I snapped while traveling.
I took this photo below while at a wedding this weekend in Carmel, California. This little girl melted my heart. All weekend.
