Zero-Waste Holidays!

My journey towards reducing our family's waste has been slowly chugging along. Since last Christmas, I've been using this card company for our Christmas cards and had a good experience with them. I am using them again this year, and they have a good offer until Nov 30th for 50% off discount on their cards.

So if anyone's looking to get some made, check them out:

Californian Ghosts? Point Sur Lighthouse

On all my travels up and down my home state of California, I've driven by the Point Sur Lighthouse numerous times, but never having the chance to pay it a visit. Tonight as I find time to catch up on old emails, I chance across an old email from my subscription to KQED and a report about the isolated Point Sur Lighthouse.

A Lighthouse So Beautiful, Ghosts Come Back to Haunt It

Montalvo Arts Ctr - Stories in Light

Being someone that is in love with ambient lights, I recently discovered an art exhibit opening in Silicon Valley featuring a European artist who is exhibiting in the Western U.S. for the very first time. I immediately got tickets and took the family on one warm fall evening (I chose to go while we are still having unseasonable warmth in the Bay Area). What we saw, did not disappoint any of us. I told the little ones that I was taking them to see magical flowers glowing in the night and they were so delighted. 

San Francisco - Lightning Fast One Day Self-Tour

Many friends have visited over the years, and the Bay Area being my childhood home, I often take my visitors who are on limited time on a very fast lightning one-day tour of San Francisco, hitting most of the critical/worthwhile sites. This is best for those with limited time or those who want to get an overview of almost everything SF has to offer and then go back to it at their own leisurely pace. This article is formatted for easy printing with all the key points and paths mapped out so you can keep it in your car for ease.

Kids Obstacle Challenge Event

This morning we participated in the Kids Obstacle Challenge and had an awesome time. It was our first time doing this event and we didn't know what to expect. It was difficult to get the family out of bed so early on a weekend morning, but we got there with our spare clothes/shoes for the first Family Wave of the morning.
