Waking up in San Francisco

Although my passion is papercrafting....and sipping wine.....and shopping....entertaining.....and traveling, SOMETIMES I have to go to work to pay for it all! I have the best career a woman can have. I get to be a Project Manager and get paid, and often get to SHOP, sip wine, and TRAVEL while I do it! This week was San Francisco. My project was in Sausalito, so I traveled the Golden Gate Bridge daily when the sun was rising. BEAUTIFUL!! This was the view from my Union Square room at the St Francis! Life is GOOD!
