I just jotted down the basics before I left; the details all came to me as I was composing this post. I'm glad I'll now have a permanent reminder of how much fun we had!
Miss you and love you too!

@urban craft, have a wonderful time in SF... I know I did!
@Elizabeth, I was staying with my sister and her boyfriend; my sister and I have a lot of common interests so it was easy to think of things to do... we just sort of planned as we went along. I hope you had a great time in SF!
