Love is in the air! It’s February and 70 degrees here on the sunny side of the San Francisco Bay.
I spent the last bit of 2014 and early 2015 traveling to and from the East Coast, and up and down the West Coast to spend time with loved ones. When on the road, I like to really focus on where I am. But in those final thirty minutes of the return trip, a sudden realization often hits: I’m finally, almost home.
As someone who’s always readily embraced the first signs of wanderlust, it’s astonishing to realize how much I feel at home here in the Bay Area.
So here’s a little tribute to the mundane and the small joys of daily life:

“I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”
