Happy Friday! Angela is visiting me in San Francisco this weekend which is super exciting. We have lots on our itinerary like being tourists and visiting Alcatraz, heading to wine country for a day and knocking some restaurants off my SF Restaurant List. (I don’t think it will ever be completed… my Pittsburgh one never was!)
Since I’ve been trying to get ahead of work this week to fully enjoy my time with Angela, I haven’t had a lot of time to read blogs (sorry, everyone!) but may or may not have gotten lost surfing the internet a little bit last night. Here are the best links I found for you this week!
