Summer in San Francisco
Remember how I just moved to Austin in April? Well the adventure continues: I’m now living in San Francisco for the summer!
Crazy, I know. In a nutshell, Jon and I came here to follow a great opportunity for Storenvy. The opportunity ended up falling through for reasons beyond our control, but we decided to stay anyway, because who wouldn’t jump at the chance to live in San Francisco for a summer? We were only house-sitting in Austin (thanks Miranda!) and had no lease tying us down, so the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.
Moving around this much lately has made me think so much about how much “stuff” we own. Jon and I have a full household of belongings in a storage unit in Austin, and even though I got rid of a lot of stuff in the move there, I can’t wait to downsize even more when we go back. Here in SF I have only about a half of my closet, basic toiletries, basic kitchen supplies and the bare bones of furniture. (I even brought too many toiletries. When you’re condensing your essentials into a few suitcases and boxes, that’s crazy.) Let this be a lesson: Less really is more!
We just moved this week into an awesome old flat in the Mission on a two- to three-month lease. I seem to have new “how cool is this city?!” moments day in and day out — love it! A few snapshots from our stay so far…
Our new backyard has a lemon tree!

“Whatever happened to pre-dict-a-bil-i-ty…” I can’t tell you how much I’ve been craving old episodes of Full House since we’ve been here. There must be something in the air.
