Within months of graduating from Cal, Erin met her husband Rick and for the last 14 years has been raising a family in San Francisco. Their two sons love the city as much as they do and are proud to call themselves natives. Erin works as a freelance writer and editor but also enjoys the freedom that comes with blogging. She was the SF Frugal Family contributor for Examiner.com a few years back, and if you are looking for creative ideas for getting out around town, you can still find her work at http://www.examiner.com/frugal-family-in-san-francisco/erin-darwin. In her free time, Erin loves to read, cheer on the Giants, try new restaurants and practice yoga.
