I often get "on here" and wonder if I will EVER be finished posting about vacation. Probably not. This, Sweet Readers, is a post about searching for something and actually being 100% satisfied, pleased as pie, content once you find it.
This is also a post about San Francisco.
I have become mildly-obsessed with a few blogs since finishing my Master's Program (oh free time, glorious free time)! I said mildly, okay? One of my favorite blog-authors happens to have previously lived in San Francisco. During her time there, she left behind a little treasure (the etching, NOT the baby, okay?) on a nearby sidewalk that I was bound and determined to find while we visited the city.
My husband was The Best Sport Ever. Not being much of a blog reader himself, I think he had a hard time wrapping his head around what exactly we were looking for during our hunt (not to mention WHY we were even looking).
We searched for quite a while until we finally found our mark. In the end, it was quite the adventure and felt pretty close to a real, live treasure hunt. After nearly 7 months of reading dearbaby and withoutmelissa, finding her old apartment felt like getting plunked right down in the middle of an old, favorite book.
And if you know the true purpose of this trip from reading this or this, then you know these two little words held even more meaning for us.
(Although my sister insists that asking an almost-stranger for their previous address via email is creepy, I tend to disagree, and I hope Melissa does too.)
So, today- I encourage you to think to yourself, "What do I want to find today/next month/next year? What will I regret not finding or not even TRYING to find when I look back on my life?"
Now, it's not fair to ask YOU to do something if I haven't done it myself. True?
I think my answer right now has to do with Jesus, book-writing, and babies.
So now you know.
I've got my GPS, some comfy shoes, and a puppy with a pretty good sniffer. Let's discover it together.
Love and successful treasure hunts,
P.S. I know why you love this city. I see it, too.
