If You’re Going To San Francisco…

I know I’ve been a little off the grid as of late… I’m still trying to play catch up after my mini vacay to my favorite city by the bay. I think it’s really important to get away every now and then, to unwind, escape the nuances of everyday life, and reassess what’s really important. Here are some photo highlights of the trip…

and we're off

Annnd we’re off… Frida and I en route to SF!

I was sick the entire trip… as in no voice sick, but I didn’t let it get me down. Alternate forms of communication + sippin’ on some sizzurp.

Nothing s’mores and whiskey by the fire can’t cure.

vino tasting.jpg

Oh… and wine tasting in Carmel. Wine on wine on wine. Love the modern decor.

The whole town of Carmel is so dog friendly… even the wineries :) it’s a dog’s life.

Morning hike at Carmel Valley Ranch. The perfect way to start the day.

Love this mural // Trying to speak to my unborn nephew… Hi baby Lucho! Auntie Kika can’t wait to meet you!!

unlucky 27.jpg

Some cool sidewalk art // groovy Ashbury sign // Unlucky # 27… a tribute to Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and other musicians who lost their lives at the tender age of 27. Tragic and beautiful.

shopping success.jpg

A successful day of shopping on Haight. Got to feed my obsession at the Kidrobot store + picked up some cool new kicks at True SF.

until next time

The trip home is never as much fun… Frida agrees. Until next time SF. Xx.

Wine tasting… Artesa was our fav!

Well I’m back from the bay and its safe to say that I am already going through withdrawal! I had the best time with my family… eating, drinking, relaxing, exploring, sunning, and of course… shopping! We started the trip out in Napa. Wine country was beautiful and we had a blast! We spent the second half of our trip by the bay. We lucked out with beautiful sunny weather for the 4th. Its always hard to leave, but soon I won’t have to… the bay area will be my permanent residence as of next month and I couldn’t be more excited! Here are some photo highlights from my trip…
