saturday morning was freezing and raining... jac and i immediately regretted our idea to go to the ferry building farmers market. oh well. we later made our way to SOMA to do a little christmas shopping at renegade craft fair -- this event is always a great time, even if you just want to browse the various booths of just about anything you can imagine. the most important thing to note about this day is that i finally got my own set of merriment hardware paddles (i know, it's sad) ... and i couldn't be happier for them in their success! the night ended with a cozy winter dinner at gioia. cheers!
