This time tomorrow evening Gracie, Marshall and I will be having dinner at the Empress Of China in downtown San Francisco! The Empress of China is lauded internationally as one of the world's most beautiful Oriental restaurants and is located in the largest China town outside of Asia.
We are traveling to San Francisco for the 9th Annual Conference of the Weston A. Price Foundation, which we have been members of for the past 7 years. This year's conference is titled "Life In Its Fullness: Nutrition for Mental and Emotional Health". Doctors, nurses, nutritionists, dietitians, parents, students, food writers, food providers, farmers, public servants, teachers, patients, activists and agriculture professionals gather from all over the world to learn the latest on a variety of health and healing topics!!
The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency near the San Francisco airport. We're excited to be sharing a room with a fellow WAPF member from Lincoln, NE (Sue Kirkpatrick) whom we met this past summer.
Gracie will be participating in a new children's program that will run concurrently with the adult daytime sessions. We hope to visit Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39 on Sunday afternoon. Karen Seevers' (my sister-in-law) mother lives in San Francisco and has graciously offered to be our tour guide. Looks like it will be in the high 60's each day!
