San Francisco moments

It has been a while since I posted and I feel terrible about this. Before its too late, I wanted to share a few highlights from my visit to San Francisco to see my sister.

Needless to say, it was awesome. Being with family, seeing my sister’s baby pup, the food, Napa Valley and the weather was just what my overworked brain needed.



Dont you just love this art glass display? It was in the caverns at Pine Ridge Winery.

We enjoyed a glorious day in Napa, celebrating my sister’s birthday.

Dinner at Thomas Keller’s Bouchon was the perfect ending!

Stolling through furniture stores in Hayes valley was delightful. These colored glass pendants took my breath away.

Found some lovely treasures at lavish.

Treated myself to melt-in-your mouth chocolates in exotic flavors at Christopher Elbow Artisanal Chocolates. You have to try their coconut-chocolate truffles.

And macarons from Chantal Guillon. YUM!


The best tacos in a while, at Tacolicious.


Another highlight from the trip was getting to meet sweet stylist Amy Atlas in person at her book signing event at William Sonoma. I have been a long term admirer of Amy’s work and left feeling so inspired; she’s so lovely in person. Peeps, if you havent bought her book ( Sweet Designs; Bake it, craft it, style it) you absolutely MUST. Packed with drool-worth desserts, ideas to style tables, and templates, this is one book no hostess should be without.

I heart San Francisco.
