1. Coffee and reading in North Beach (Caffe Trieste, I heart you)
2. Being good enough at driving a stick shift (finally) that I am no longer scared to drive in San Francisco.
3. Watching surfers catch waves with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background.
4. Clove-flavored toothpaste. (And the sepia-toned memories it brings back: sitting on my stoop in Boston, Summer '96, the scent and crackle of clove cigarettes in the air).
5. Handmade flannel pajamas on a cold night.
