One year in San Francisco!

Today is the one year anniversary of my move to San Francisco! I can't believe it's been 12 months already!

Rob and I got so lucky with our apartment in Duboce Triangle. We had no idea how great our neighborhood would turn out to be. And when we got jobs together at the same company? And when Jean and Trent moved in a few blocks away? We must have earned a bunch of good karma somewhere!

I hate to think about just how clueless I was this time a year ago. I didn't know how the door buzzer worked, I had sore legs all the time from hiking around the city and I once walked all the way from Civic Center to Castro (about two miles) because I couldn't figure out how to get on the subway when the booth wasn't staffed! Those first few weeks were full of so many embarrassments and adventures!

And that's just through October! It certainly has been a wild ride. Here's wishing that number two is just as fun, crazy and incredible as this first year has been!
