San Francisco ~*~ The Daughter

First, I have to say that blogger was down for service yesterday for all of us who have not turned over to the new version yet (the dark side).
Then, my wonderful hubby helped me until 10:30 pm Friday night switching over because my computer got 'stuck' in level 2 of the change for at least 5 hours....I ended up in tears thinking I had lost everything...nope, my knight in shining armor saved me and my archives :-)
I miss everyone like mad and can't wait to get to your posts :)














































































Spending the days with Angela is always a pleasure. She drove to save me the stress of San Fran chaos maneuvering...we stressed anyway. The cab drivers are CrAzY...honking, yelling, cursing and cutting you off with no use of signaling. I white knuckled it the entire time and Angela almost ran over 2 people. Yikes! Not for the weak at heart.

That is her in the lobby of the hotel with the light green sweater. Notice how she is waaaaaay ahead of me, as I was already snapping pictures and embarrassing her. ;-)
(I do not know the woman with the camera!)

The terrible picture in the elevator is my lightning fast attempt at taking yet another picture of us before the door opened. (Under her smile she is saying, "Ma!"

The big building is her new place of work that she starts in January. (such a BIG building for a little snap of my baby girl).

Then, at dinner we had a cocktail with our appetizers...something I think I'll never get used to.

And, a rest in our room before we braved the rain and the grumpy Christmas shopping people, (who walk the sidewalks like the cabby's drive) If you're from San Fran....sorry ")

We enjoyed the entire trip and each other....Snuggle hugging a plenty.

Tomorrow....the magnificent Hotel :)

Update: Blogger is still being impossible. I am waiting for a response from the Wizard who lives in the land of Blog....if someone doesn't get to him first (:#) I am missing all of you!!!

I feel your love for her with every word you write. She has the most amazing eyes. As for San Francisco, we rarely go in to the City during this time of year - it's just too insane and I don't have the patience for LONG waits to park, to eat, to buy etc. But it's a lovely city nonetheless...I prefer going on a day when you can sit outside to eat and people watch. So glad you were able do it together!
XOXO
