San Fran Vacay

I've already shared one part of my trip to San Francisco last week- the blogger meet up!

But the main reason that I headed to Cali last week was for a vacation with my little sister, Tori (she just started her teacher blog, so drop by and say hi!). At 23, she had never been on an airplane... so I decided it was high time that I made that happen! I gave her two options- New York or California? And she chose Cali! So off to San Francisco we went. And we had a ball.

Here are some of the pics from the first half of our trip, running around the city.

across the bridge in Sausalito (I want to move there! just sayin....)

And yes, we did all of this (along with the blog meet up!) in less than 48 hours. We were busy girls, but loved every minute of it. Tomorrow I'll share pictures from the rest of our amazing adventures in San Francisco (and Sonoma!). The last two days were actually my favorite days of the trip. What are your favorite parts of San Fran?

Don't forget to enter the Blessed Graphic Design giveaway! It ends tomorrow night!

  5. Some of the greatest memories I have are the small amount of time I spent in SF on vacation once. Love it there. It's like a whole other country.

  6. Thanks for sharing pictures from your San Fran trip. That is one place I've always wanted to visit. I have a friend who is a competitive athlete who swam the Golden Gate Swim (1 1/4 mile swim from Alcatraz to the shore). I live vicariously through her.

  7. I *love* the homes in SF. I've been thinking about doing a series of posts on SF neighborhoods

    Were you cold riding that bike over the golden gate in shorts!?

  8. What a great trip! And, such a sweet thing for you and your sister to do. I think my girls will be the reverse. While both have flown, the older will NOT leave the country...her sister just might have something to say about that!

  10. We loved Sausalito, too. It looks like it was pretty warm there. We'll be there in 2 weeks, and now I'm wondering if I should pack warmer-weather clothes.
