Lunch with Bronnie


Yesterday I had lunch with my man Bronnie Hazelwood. Bronnie was the first designer I ever worked for, about 15 years ago. We've maintained a close friendship ever since. We met at Ratto's in Old Oakland and had sandwiches on the sidewalk.

Dawn Hike in Tilden

One of the best things about being back in the Bay Area is the easily accessible outdoor recreation. I've been taking advantage of Tilden as much as I can, especially early in the morning when the fog is still hanging in the trees and the sun is rising over Mt. Diablo.
