If you're just joining in on this Bay area adventure,

Week 48: San Francisco Adventures--Part I

We visited the San Francisco Bay area this week and fell
in love with this place.

It's not just the city itself that's captured our hearts, it's the general vibe of the area as a whole.

It's the stunning man-made structures flawlessly juxtaposed against nature's own creations.

It's the delicious flavors of locally-sourced foods, of carefully crafted brews.  It's the gypsy lifestyle of Haight Street.  That air of creativity.  That tangible spark of electricity that makes this whole place feel alive.

A wonderful day spent with my family that almost didn't happen...

due to my penchant for procrastination...

Week 46: If Elvis and Ingrid Michaelson had a musically challenged lovechild...

Since my posts as of late have been dominated by my new found obsession with running, I thought this week I would try to do something a little different.

Remember wayyyy back when I told you I got a ukulele for Christmas?

Well, it was only 15 weeks ago... and I have finally learned one full song to near performance standards!

This week, I logged onto and found myself one of the easiest yet most beautiful songs of all time:  "Can't help falling in love"

So, without further ado...
