We live in a 2-bedroom apartment in San Francisco. Our home is bright and warm, and we love it very much. We have filled our house with stuff that makes us happy - we have dozens (hundreds?) of books, and artwork from all over the world. Our bedroom walls are covered in pictures of our trips to Belize and Honduras, hand-crafted art from India and Kenya, and a framed copy of our wedding invitation. It reminds us every day about how much fun we have together!
We have 3 rescue pets: two cats named Kate and Viola and a dog named Penny. Our cats can be shy at first, but they will happily settle into your lap for attention if you hang out for just a little bit. Penny is sweet and smart and always loves to play. Her favorite activities include swimming in the ocean, chasing her soccer ball (yes, Laura taught her how to play soccer!), and snoozing between us on the couch. She loves kids and says hi to every child we meet on walks! Our friends’ 4-year-old loves her so much that he called us “the Penny mamas” for the first year after we met him.
Our favorite part of every day is our evenings together at home, cooking (Laura), sharing (both), and cleaning up (Meg) a home-cooked meal, all while talking about our days. Spending some family time together, no matter how crazy our days have been, will continue with our son or daughter at the table!
Our neighborhood is the perfect combination of quiet and active - our street is peaceful (by city standards!), but we are just a few blocks away from a busy area with lots of stuff to do. We are right up the street from Golden Gate Park and spend a lot of time there walking, biking, and picnicking. We get around as much as we can on foot. Being able to walk places is just one of the things we love about living in a city. We can’t wait to strap on a baby carrier and take our little one with us to see the sights
