Last month, O and I hopped on a plane and after 3 hours of watching Meg Ryan movies in the sky, we landed kid-free in the city where we were became boyfriend and girlfriend, spent most our engagement and were married: San Francisco.
We both went to college in the Bay Area, I spent the majority of my high school years there as well and coming back has always felt a little bit like home. Even though O is Canadian, his sister also made the jump to head across the country and live in the Golden State years ago. She and her husband are such wonderful hosts and since O lived with her during his off-seasons during our dating and engagement, it’s only fitting we stay there “just like old times” every time we visit.
(totally got this bag to use as a library bag. super win.)
the decaf almond milk vanilla latte at Cafe Reveille was the best of my life. dreaming of this every since
Jane on Filmore is an absolute must visit- the gluten free bread with jam + my favorite latte blew me away.
The last day of our trip was spent driving to Half Moon Bay to watch one of my sweetest friends’ say I Do. We had our first date in California in Half Moon Bay (I wore a red and white striped H&M dressed which I bought just for this date. I’ll never get rid of it I love it so much!) so this place is really special for us too. It’s a little bit over an hour drive from the city and our favorite way to spend a drive is with a ‘How I Built This’ podcast and listening to the songs we’d play on road trips when we were dating in this city 9 years ago. Lots of Usher, Damien Rice, Kings of Leon, and old school R&B. Nothing like driving the coast with the windows down and your feel-goods blasting!
