Sonoma, San Fran and Scary Streets... Oh My!

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Exactly a week ago today, my sister and I were in San Francisco. I've already shared about our bike ride across the Golden Gate Bridge and the big blogger meet up at the San Francisco Design Center, but my favorite part of the vacation?

Our day trip into Sonoma.

It was an absolutely gorgeous day (we were so blessed to have incredible weather the entire trip!). Tori and I also got lucky in the form of my dear friend Kate, who mapped out her local's perspective on how to spend a day in the Sonoma valley. Her advice was spot on and we had the best time.

On Saturday, we were lucky enough to have another beautiful day. Tori and I met up with Michaela for a day of adventures in the city. 

First stop? The Ferry Building Market (thank you, Jacin for the advice to visit the market!).






We also spent some time shopping in Pacific Heights and lunching with another blogger, Kelly! We had so much fun exploring that part of town and spending some time with Kelly- she is the sweetest and has some amazing travel stories!

Then Michaela decided to drive Tori and I down Lombard Street- the most crooked street in the world! I had full faith in M's driving skills, but I will have to tell you... those hills and those turns are SCARY!




I was a liiiitle nervous... but we made it down safely! : )

So that's our trip to San Francisco, in a nutshell! I think we did a great job of hitting all of the highlights the beautiful city  has to offer. And I can promise you, we had enough fun and laughs to last us for awhile!

I'm really happy to be over at two other amazing blogs today!

  1. Hi- I love San Fran - I lived in Berkeley for about two years, so San Fran proper was a frequent destination - it was a hard place to leave! Glad you got to see and enjoy it!

    Have a great weekend!

  9. I have never been to San Francisco, I have been in southern CA. It is beautiful out there. It looks like you had a wonderful time out there.
    It is good to be home though, isn't it.
