Left My Heart in San Fransisco

Since bursting in through the garage door last night to be vigourously greeted by my dog, it’s been hard to convince myself I really want to go back out. It was a wonderful trip, don’t get me wrong, but it’s such a relief to be back home. Highlights of the trip would definitely include the first hotel we stayed at in LA, where my sister broke a hotel toilet seat into four pieces, we almost plunged to our death on a broken elevator, and I almost suffocated by trying to smell durian cookies bought at a local China Town grocery store. All of which, I would be hard pressed to try again, but they sure will make great memories. I just can’t believe that all of a sudden, I find myself staring at not only January on the calendar, but the calendar itself is for 2007. As much as I was expecting this, inevitable as it is, I still find myself mildly shocked and alarmed that so much time has gotten away from me. Hopefully this new year will bring with it many more positive experiences and maybe even memories that would be worth repeating as well.

Thank you everyone for all of your well-wishes on my last post! It was truly heartwarming to return to all of your lovely messages, and I’m only disappointed I couldn’t access them sooner. Emily and Desiree, I would have loved to meet up with you had it worked out… Maybe I’ll be back sometime, and better organized to boot? We’ll see I suppose. And yes, that was me in the blue ornament, with the strategically placed camera so as not to scare away potential readers. Trust me, I’m doing you all a favor on this one!

Any way, I still have tons of unpacking, cleaning, and writing to do not only to settle back in, but also to prepare to face school again tomorrow. In the mean time, here are a few of my favorite shots from the trip. I bet everyone can figure out where atleast one of them was taken…
