The things I miss

Here I am, just past the third anniversary of my move from the San Francisco Bay Area to lovely Richmond, Virginia. I still believe with all my heart the move is the best decision I ever made, but, there are a few things I miss from the place I once called home.

See? Friday can be a good thing.

Really, look for the Katy Perry and Glee versions, they’re awesome…

Happy Christmas

Here we are on Christmas Day, the snow flurry began about an hour ago, just as Sarah and I finished our brunch of scrambled eggs, sausage and cinnamon rolls.
