hi, all! i'm laura marie from a diary of little things and curiosities... first, a big thank you to DT for having me! and second, of course, a few words on change:





change. it's is a funny thing, isn't it? 

as with love, we're never quite sure how we feel about it, are we? depending on the day, depending on our frame of mind, depending on where we are or who we're with or whether we're feeling content in that moment, sometimes we fear it. or sometimes we seek it. or sometimes we flat out reject it. and other times, of course, we absolutely crave it.

personally, i've always leaned toward the craving side of things. it's all part of being a writer, i suppose: i'm constantly racking my imagination for ideas, dreaming of different moments and different realities. i lust after a year in paris, or a year in new york--a new job, a new hairstyle, a new pair of shoes. if i had it my way, life would be one constant makeover, new and fresh each and every day.

... actually, though, isn't life that way as it is? at least, on a smaller sort of scale? we're never quite the same as we were the day before. we have a new tiny bit of knowledge or a new attitude or maybe even a new sense of ourselves that we lacked yesterday. we're victims--or is it oh-so-fortunate recipients?--of constant, compelling change.

what a lovely little comfort that is.

A day in San Francisco — Memorial Day

If you have followed my blog for sometime, you probably know about my big move across coast. It's been a few months being a Cali resident, but I haven't gotten out as much as I would have liked. Maybe once we move to a place, it kinda loses the tourist charm that it has when we visit for a weekend. Don't you think?
I decided to make this right and this Memorial Day weekend, I spent my first Touristy day in San Francisco. Like anything else, I made a long list of places to see, and spread it across three days based on distance proximity. Yes, it was a whole weekend plan but life get in way and hence it ended up being just a day trip.

The day started with a little detour at Bay Trail, near Shoreline Park, followed by a quick brunch at Crepe Vine and a beautiful long drive to the city.

The Painting Ladies at Alamo Square was our first stop. These are basically just houses with a Victorian architecture and painted with three or more colors. The whole area looks very different a…
