Our Favorite Walks and Hikes

The sky is blue, the wildflowers are blooming, and the East Bay’s multitude of open spaces beckon. There’s no better time to enjoy our trails. I love hiking the ridge in Burton Valley’s Lucas Ranch. Start at the Lucas Ranch gate (at the very end of Lucas) and walk up the paved streets. Turn left at the gravel road at the top of the hill...

Spring Clean Early to Help Those in Need

The post holiday period is a great time for a little pre-spring cleaning. As you make room for new items that require space in cupboards and closets, take stock of items that continue to be useful and that continue to ‘give you joy,’ as Marie Kondo would say. For any item that has outlived its usefulness, consider donating it to one of the many Bay...

Gratitude

When my children were in preschool, their teachers would ask them at Thanksgiving what they were thankful for. Their replies were translated to paper in the teacher’s handwriting, and their answers (the dog, etc.) always made me laugh. But I appreciated the exercise, and I continue it myself to this day. I love Thanksgiving for its reminder to us all to count our blessings. It’s...

The Lafayette Juniors Annual Kitchen Tour turns 20 this year! I cannot believe it has been two decades since I first proposed this fun idea while serving as major fundraising chair of this fabulous organization.

Gratitude

I am so grateful to live and work in a community I adore and in which I’ve spent my entire life. In Lamorinda, and throughout the entire Bay Area, we have much to be thankful for – open space, recreational opportunities, cultural activities, beautiful neighborhoods, and friendly neighbors. And while it’s easy to take all of this for granted, I often think about the well-known...

Why I Support Children’s Hospital Oakland

Whether you’ve visited or not, you’re likely familiar with UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland (CHO) and its main facility located adjacent to Highway 24. We are fortunate to be located so close to this world class, state-of-the-art facility that treats more children than any other pediatric hospital in the Bay Area.

We Were the Grateful Ones

Earlier in September my team and I took part in one of the most fulfilling ventures we’ve ever undertaken. The end result of our efforts was something with which we are familiar – helping people and families find and create a home – but this time it was a bit different. Working with a wonderful group called Grateful Gatherings, we, along with the help of...
