And don’t even get me started on all of the great neighborhoods to explore across the city, … Continue reading The 411 on San Francisco with Kids

On a kids-free trip to Huntsville, I met someone.

With a quiet gasp from my travel companions, the first orange splash of cat appeared, a bold stroke sauntering on four legs before the chartreuse shutters of the porch.
