Top 10 Reasons We'll Miss San Francisco

10. Major League Baseball (not necessarily the Giants, just the energy of living near AT&T park while Barry Bonds broke his record--although we'll always root for them!)

4. Did we mention the food?

3. Andy's Orchard - Thanks to Lauren and Eric who turned us onto this place just a few weeks ago. Really, if you live in the Bay Area, you must make the drive to take a harvest tour. You'll never forget it...

2. San FranFreakshow (aka Freak Show Frisco)

1. And of course: our cherished Bay Area friends and family. We'll miss you all so much!
