To me, November means cold and crisp. In San Francisco it can mean cold and foggy. Very cold and very foggy. These pictures were taken on the Marin side of the Golden Gate Bridge on a frigid day when the fog was so thick, you could hardly see five feet in front of you. Serious fog.

Enjoy!


I have loved living in the San Francisco Bay Area. It’s not all peaches and plentiful parking but it has been a fabulous place to live and, if the conditions were right, I would stay here forever.

I look forward to moving to Pennsylvania for the new year, but there will always be a soft spot in my heart for this area and all of the wonderful people I’ve met during my stay here.

“There are so many beautiful parts of the world . . . Thailand, Italy, the south of France. There are places in Spain that are astonishing. But here . . . 25 miles and you go up on Mount Tam to see the fog come in; 25 miles the other direction and you’re somewhere else that takes your breath away. There’s no question this is where I want to live. Never has been.”

Philadelphia Gay Pride Parade and Festival 2014
Yesterday marked the first Gay Pride Parade and Festival in Philadelphia since gay marriage became legal in Pennsylvania just last month.  The parade, which started in the Gayborhood and wound its way down to Penn’s Landing, drew the largest crowds yet.  There were rainbows everywhere.  The Village People headlined the show at Penn’s Landing, several couples married at Independence Hall, and there were community-based LGBTQ booths (hi HRC friends!) as far as the eye could see down by the river. Here are just a few pictures I snapped while celebrating yesterday. As much fun as it was to see the revelry, I look f ...

Meet the new COO of LDP, Asher
He is small and sweet and social and so, so happy and I’m truly enamored in a way that I’ve never been before and didn’t quite expect.  I had Asher 6 months ago today after 9 months of heavy prepartum depression and a tiring labor.  Two weeks early, 17 hours of contractions, and an emergency c-section later (goodbye, birth plan!), I had a wiggly, tiny, bird-like baby weighing in at 6lbs 2oz. For a while we called him Mr. Magoo because he was so wrinkly and weak. And he rocked a sweet mullet! Eventually he filled out with plump cheeks, a melon for a noggin, and a dusting of hair.  Possibly because I kept expectations qui ...
