Had to stop in an visit Sam (owner of King’s Bakery) to get a coconut bun. When I was a little girl, my parents and I would pop around the corner and get get fresh baked bread. This place has been around since 1981!!! Family owned and still so popular. #love #memories #kingsbakery #themission (at King’s Bakery)

It all comes back full circle. All these years, I worked on Plan B so I could do Plan A. Started my new job with an org that I love AND I am back in my childhood neighborhood - The Mission!! THIS is where I grew up, where I walked to school with my Pops, walked to my childhood best friend’s house, and waited for my Mom to come home from work. Despite the changes in SF, THIS is my home and one of the first loves of my life. As I mentioned to a friend, I’m trying my best to help keep the soul visible and the frequency of SF’s soul audible by helping to build bridges. Lots of work ahead, but I’m so ready. #love #passion #sanfrancisco #grayareaorg #blessed (at The Mission)

Being a lover of Love, how could I not stop and think, “Yeah, I love me too.” 😊 The creator of http://www.loveyou2.org made this and other ephemera around the City. I say “I love you” to my loved ones all the time. I think we take for granted what it actually means, which is probably why there’s a lot of the opposite in the world. Make sure you tell someone you love them. NOT because you want something in return, but because you have it in your heart to give. #abrazos #besos #mahal #amor #loveyou2  (at Morning Walk)

Decided to take the dog on an extra long walk since it’s my last day petsitting. 🐶 There’s something magical about walking around the City when everyone is still sleeping. It’s as if the universe is sharing things nobody else is willing to listen to. The flowers look extra inviting and bright. I’ve been advised to s…l…o…w it down. So I’m trying to do that and listen carefully to things (and people) around me.  (at Morning Walk)

On my morning walk with a sweet and adorable dog, I looked down and see this message. Something that has come up recently is how easy it is for me to take care of another person, but I don’t know how to take care of myself. That this constant need to help and fix things is really me wanting to fix something inside myself that I’m unwilling to address. BUT being gentle and kind to myself is a start. Thanks for the reminder @elijahloveraven ❤️ (at My Heart and Mind)

FINALLY! I have an Indira Allegra original in my hands (albeit gloved hands). 1 of 1! So proud to be the happy home of this deeply personal work, Black Femininity. Reading through the pages, I’ve heard similar things said about myr and my existence. Being a QWOC is NOT easy and this work reminds me of how deep seeded hate/hurtful speech can effect the body, heart, and mind. BUT how it can also make one stronger. Thank you for making this beautiful work, @indiraallegra ❤️❤️❤️ (at My Home)
