San Francisco

painted-ladies-2-san-francisco

I feel like I say this every time I return from a trip, but this time I mean it with every fibre of my being: San Francisco shook me in ways I really and truly wasn’t expecting. I mean, I knew it was going to be beautiful. We planned ahead. I came equipped with a list of the best of the best restaurants, shops, sites… and other such things suggested by bloggers, family and friends far and wide. But that whole “I left my heart in San Francisco” adage? Yup, it’s a thing.

Justin and I were only really able to clear 4 short days on our schedules, so we were practically in and out of the city before we could blink, but it was love at first sight and I’m most certainly not finished. From the mouth-watering food*, to the incredible sites, to the people we met**, there truly wasn’t a moment that wasn’t picture perfect in every sense of the word. Following are a “few” photographable moments from our trip, and if you’re ever planning on visiting yourself I added a list of our highlights (plus a bunch of things we unfortunately missed) below. 

*I’m both impressed at embarrassed at the amount of food we ingested during our 4 day stint. We really and truly ate at every single restaurants/bakery/ice creamery listed down there – yikes

**San Franciscans? You people are FRIENDLY! Kind! Creative and interesting! I like you. All of you.
