San Francisco

Muir Woods

Now that the weather has switched from warm and sunny to practically fra-eezing this winter, all I want to do is stay under the covers.  I did however take advantage of the very unusual San Francisco temps while they were here.  Last weekend, the boyfriend and I took a drive across the Golden Gate Bridge to Muir Woods.   We only made it halfway through one of the several 3 hour trails.

New Years Eve

hello 2012,
Last year was a good year… I moved to San Francisco, and landed a job in a top 10 market, met my special someone, paid off my student loans, and went on several vacations including: Maui, New York, and countless trips back to LA and San Diego!

If you look here, my resolutions were simple—
“Spend it with people who make you smile and don’t be afraid to take any risks.”

And I’m pretty sure I did just that!

I found the shiniest dress in my closet, and headed to Soma for the pre-party festivities.

Brandy and Julie cooked our last meal of the year! Lamb, Risotto, Asparagus and a salad so good it was the perfect way to end 2011.

happy New Year!

Goodbye 2011- Hello 2012

Thanksgiving in San Francisco

It’s been years since I’ve spent time with my family on Thanksgiving, because I’ve always had to work. This year I still had to work, but it made me feel extra special when I came home and they were already there. We did a little sightseeing at the usual spots- Fisherman’s Wharf, drove down Lombard Street, ate ice cream at Ghiradelli and saw the tree lighting at Union Square. It was Black Friday, so everything was extra packed. Saturday was a bit more low-key. We visited places I had never been before… like the beautiful- Baker Beach, and we also did a little shopping, but mostly eating inside the Ferry Building.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and you got to spend it with the ones you love!
