40 & etc.

I turned 40! I’d been craving izakaya food, and my husband wanted to take me out for my birthday, so we ended up at Izakaya Sozai in the Sunset district of San Francisco. It was perfect! The food was really good, and we had a flight of sake which really made me nostalgic for my years living in Japan.

We had just enough time left (babysitter clock was ticking) to dash over to North Beach to have a bit of dessert at Caffe Trieste. Biscotti, rugulah, and baklava.

This is extra-special to us, because we first met at the Caffe Trieste in Berkeley. ❤️

40 feels ok! I’m tired due to a new job and all, but am trying to keep that creative spirit flowing! We had a kinder birthday today, and I whipped up a wee messenger bag for the birthday lass.


The lining is purple, and it’s reversible! I fudged the strap placement, because I thought the straps were too wide for the wee space.  I had to rip it out and finagle a ruched look.  

Hopefully I can perfect this, because I’m hoping to make some wee bags to wear around work when I don’t have a pocket for cell phone, etc.

Happy Saturday!!!
