[Oh, Snap] Cruising the PCH

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” 
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

On the way back from San Francisco, we had two options for our drive: take the 5 and suffer through the dusty drabness that defines the middle of our state, or cruise down the Pacific Coast Highway and enjoy ourselves.  Well, after doing the later I can firmly say that as in all of life – it should be about the journey and not the destination; and journey we did!  Not even exaggerating, we stopped at every third turnout to catch a view of the stunning California Coast!  Now, I grew up in the Bay Area, came down for college in the Central Coast and cruised on down to LA when I was done but never have I ever taken the 1 down the coast. Well, after yesterday I can check that off the proverbial bucket list and I have the pictures to prove it!  We roamed the beach, found beautiful foliage and gorgeous coastal views; it really was like a dream come true…

[Doing it Right] San Francisco, the City of Dreams

This past weekend I took the love of my life up to my favorite city for a weekend full of eats, drinks, adventures and my favorite people.  We spent a few days in the city with my family soaking in the beautiful and breezy weather, exploring the Farmer’s Market at the Ferry Building, graffiti in the Mission, epic views from both Bernal Heights Hills and Twin Peaks and last – but definitely not least – and enjoying the Exploratirum and Pier 14 with a few of our close friends.  On Monday, we took to the city just the two of us to see what trouble we could get into.  Below are some of my absolute favorite moments of the weekend but even the pictures can’t do it justice; it was absolutely perfect and I’m more in love than I ever thought possible!
