I Saved the World Today

(The following is a TRUE story.)

I pulled the car, loaded to its brim with half of my belongings, into a small driveway on a peaceful, but crowded, city street.

As I unloaded, I heard something fall to the concrete. I turned and watched as my globe, a favorite decoration for my new apartment, awkwardly tumbled down the steep hill of my new street.

I darted after it, only to see a cop pull up and open his car door like he was also about to chase it. I knelt down to pick up the globe and looked up at him.

He smiled and said: “Now you can tell everyone you saved the world today.”

Thus begins a beautiful new chapter for me in my favorite American city.   I’ve moved in to my new neighborhood and have begun exploring and unpacking San Francisco.

More photos, travel home decor, food findings, and updates from this new adventure to follow.

There are also some new travel posts in the works that I’m excited to share with you.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to find an “I ♥ SFPD” t-shirt.
