She Was a Day Tripper

I am back from my little trip and from a restful weekend! I was able to go to San Francisco and I took lots and lots of pictures! I have sorted out a few of my favorites below. It was a great day full of shopping, delicious food, and wonderful sights!



View while eating lunch.

This building reminded me of Paris.


"Pink & green Thursday!" I said aloud with glee as I took this picture and thought of Pink & Green Thursdays!

Golden Gate Bridge covered by fog.


Yummy cupcakes!


An adorable store called Gigi + Rose.


Chinatown


I made it Miette! Remember all their goodies here? I tried their chocolate lavender macaron and their delicious salty and sweet caramels. Sooo good!




I feel blessed for days like this.

That looks like a fun and interesting day trip. It also looks like a place that needs more than one day. :)

Lovely, lovely pictures. I have such great memories of SF. When I stayed there (for about 2 months) I bought myself a bicycle in a carboot sale and cycled everywhere. Just loved it! Wishing you a wonderful start to the week! xoxo

Seems like you had an awesome day! I love those cute cute cupcakes, and the other treats.

I have a question, though -- is it ok if I quote stuff you wrote on your balloon/letting go post in a blog post of mine? I'm going to cite you, of course.

Oh my goodness, yum! All those cupcakes look amazing. I love San Francisco! I lived there for a year after college and was enamored by the shopping, culture, and beauty. But I eventually moved back to LA. I still love to visit though. Looks like you had a wonderful weekend there.
