Lady of Sorrows

It’s starting to hit me that I’m really leaving San Francisco. As excited as I am to move to London, it’s sad to leave home. My boyfriend and I had a going away party the other night at Mauna Loa. It was great to see all of our friends, but sad to say good-bye.

Lady in Hollywood (Maryland, that is)

I’ve been running around like crazy this week trying to get everything packed for London, but I want to do a quick post about my trip to Maryland and DC last weekend.

My boyfriend and I headed to DC on Thursday for his 10 year high school reunion in Hollywood, Maryland. We stayed in DC on Thursday night and met up with some of his college buddies at a sports bar in Bethesda. I had a great time listening to stories about all the crazy things they did in college.

Lady Has a Visa!

I got my Entry Clearance for London yesterday! My passport arrived in the mail with a fancy full-page sticker that makes me an official UK visa holder. I’m so excited!

Lady and the Chocolate Factory

Today I went to Berkeley to tour the Scharffen Berger Chocolate Factory. I had passed by the factory a few times before, and my combined love of chocolate and interest in how it is made prompted the visit.
