Ginger, one of these days our paths will cross so let's keep trying. Have just returned from Leguna Negal area. We shopped the farmer's markets by day and never set foot in a restaurant! Fresh artichokes, strawberries, avacados, meyer lemons.. cool Pacific breezes...adjusting back to Houston is taking some time!

At 10:22pm on October 18, 2008, Anna Gutierrez said…
So, I know this is a bit of an early request, but I just realized that the USBC is going to be held in Portland in March and I thought I should invite myself to stay at your place and we can have some super fun times. :0) What do you think?
