the place i call home.
by victoria comment


so, last week, i held an impromptu survey on what y’all like, and don’t like about sfgirlbybay. i took what you had to say to heart, and will be implementing a ton of your thoughts on what you’d like to see more of around here, and saying farewell to what maybe you just aren’t loving.

one of the things that touched me, is that many of you said you initially tuned into sfgirlbybay to see the decorating i was doing around my own house, and my personal shots of home, and around the city. i used to share much more of that, and honestly thought you might be a bit bored by it. apparently not — so thanks! it’s fun for me, so today, i thought i’d share a few peeks at the place i call home. i hope you like it.

There’s a simple elegance to the images and posts that hooked me onto your blog initially.
