Next Real Estate Pursuit

We're in a new contract on 1521B Golden Gate Ave - keep your fingers crossed that the lender will let us actually buy it!

Visiting the Winn Family

After a couple days at an industry conference in DC, I spent this past weekend visiting my college roommate Mara Winn, husband Rob and 12 week old daughter Mia in Alexandria, VA.

Lilliana Lawson Cross

The Lawson family keeps growing! The newest addition is Lilly, my cousin Julia's daughter. Soon it will grow again when Julia and Kris marry.

It's been a busy year!

Scratch That...

Mortgage lenders are definitely making up for their mistakes. Although Matt & I are perfect mortgage candidates, the HOA (homeowners' assoc) of the building raised some red flags and would not approve a loan for that condo.

Back to the house hunting! And we will continue to enjoy our 2 car parking, fabulous views and the easy life in Sausalito.

Quick NE Weekend

I took a quick trip to MA & RI for my friend's wedding and to see some old friends. It was a wonderful wedding, set in the backyard of Devon's uncle's new Cape Cod home - quite a spot! A few pics (courtesy of Erin) to honor Devon & her new husband Nick and a token picture of my 3 great friends from my years at Commonwealth:

Devon partied like a rockstar despite the fact that she broke a rib the day before from coughing as she'd been ill for a few weeks.

All of the pics from the talented Erin can be seen using the link on the right.

Evidence of my cold weather hobby

When I learned my friend Mara was pregnant, I decided to put my knitting skills to the test and attempt to create something that was not flat or rectangular. I was able to make this hat pretty quickly and gave it to Mara & Rob and baby Winn before they moved from SF to Virginia. And now, almost a year later, Mia is here and demonstrated a need for the hat on a hike in NH.

Kick-off Post

I'll start with one wedding photo before I have the professional wedding shots or photos of our new home.
