And Now...For A Public Service Announcment.


I have some very good news I've been dying to share with you. You have all been so supportive of sfgirlbybay and I couldn't wait to tell you and now it's official! I have cut down to a three-day work week in my advertising job. Beginning next week I will be working only on Tuesday•WednesdayThursday's, which will now enable me to post much more and devote much more time and energy to sfgirlbybay. I hope to bring more interesting content and features to the blog very soon. Thank you so much for all the kind words and encouragement - I wouldn't have been able to make this career leap without your support! I am so excited to start this new adventure with y'all!
