Live. Love. Luxe. San Francisco, 2009. | SFLUXE 2

As you may have read at “SF Unzipped” or “SFBayStyle,” the second anniversary of this websitce was recently celebrated at a luncheon at Orson, hosted by friends Mireille Schwartz and Joel Goodrich.

Jewelry designer Amber Marie Bently surprised me at the event with a beautiful pendant that she created herself. The pendant reads “Live, Love, Luxe” — three words which I’ve taken as the new tagline for the site. With I’ve tried to celebrate the ways in which one truly lives well in San Francisco, and I think those three words are a wonderful summary of what we strive for.

The luncheon was a wonderful opportunity to give my appreciation to some of my readers, new friends, and people featured on the site, who have made SFLuxe such fun to produce over the past two years. For 2009, my hope for all of you is that you live life to the fullest, with love in your heart every day, and the ability to enjoy the true luxury of living well in San Francisco.


Orson is an excellent space for large private events, and the food and service is divine.
