Us

today we marched. for so many reasons.

it was a beautiful, kind, loving, peaceful, funny, poignant, adventurous day. from the public transit ride from the sfv to downtown to the "march" with 750,000, to the ride home. what a gift to share this with our girls. #thefutureisfemale

10KAY

Untitled


meet the newest member of our family.

she was the 10,000 shelter rescue by loving all animals, hence the name - but we call her just "kay"

she's a loving but shy two-year-old basenji mix. and we are all smitten. (especially the girls.)

merry merry

due to a variety of circumstances, we are home for the holidays. and while we will miss our little cottage in the woods this year, we are also happy for the opportunity to do things we usually don't. like sharing Christmas dinner and our own traditions with friends. using the good china, my mom's crystal, and my great grandmother's silver. and do bring some cottage traditions here. like our annual jigsaw puzzle extravaganza.

and Christmas and Hanukkah don't often overlap - giving us twice the magic.

Progressive Dinner ::10::

how on earth have we celebrated together 10 times?

and how this event has grown!

we gathered together last night - neighbors - for our yearly Progressive Dinner. Robyn and I are hanging up our organizers' hats after this one - with the hope that others will carry on the tradition. (and from all indications, they will.) it is such a lovely event - with multiple generations, backgrounds, views. but as it has grown, it has become much more work. time for some fresh eyes and ideas.

but in the meantime, about last night...

David and I snuck out tonight to the opening for David Hockney's A Bigger Book at Taschen Gallery. So good. Really, a genius of our time. And a treat to see his arc from student through to now.
