Ghiradelli’s special Vermeer edition dark chocolate
The past five days have been a blur. I took the girls to San Francisco for a reunion with their aunties.
It was Evangeline Hope’s first time to San Francisco. Lily said her favourite part of the trip was going down Lombard Street and across the Golden Gate bridge in a 7 seat mini van. Evangeline Hope was less decisive, but didn’t understand why we had to go home. As far as mini milestones, I had a chance to see Vermeer’s Girl with the Pearl Earring which was on exhibition at the de Young gallery and it was my first time taking both girls solo on a flight. It went fine! The Aussie behind us told me upon disembarking, he was really concerned at first, but "I didn’t hear a peep out of them" (!). Here are a few shots of our visit.
