I live in Oakland with my Husband, Baby Daughter and two dogs. And we’re learning how to get around as a family of five instead of just the two of us, as it was in the beginning. Vacation time is scarce — so we’re making the most of our weekends and all that Northern California has to offer. Creating short trip itineraries is a bit of a passion for me. I hope you enjoy the travel suggestions, random musings and recipes.
