Something I used to always tell myself was, "Don't Dream, DO." I feel like there are so many moments of "should" in our lives that we can easily make into "did". A close friend of mine from school moved to San Francisco about the same time that I moved to Southern California. I had been constantly dreaming and talking about going to visit, but never made it happen. Dreaming, but not doing.
Well, starting now that's going to change. After bringing up to my boss, he was like "Of course you should buy a ticket." So that's what I did. Bought my ticket at noon on a Wednesday (for an incredible price, I might add) and I was off to SF Friday night.
Sara is always up to date on whatever cool is going on, so I knew I was in for a treat. We saw so many good things, ate so many good things, and did SO. MUCH. WALKING. They really were not lying when they said San Francisco was hilly. (Not sure who "they" is, but just go with me here.) We went to Delores Park, Soma, Hayes Valley, the Ferry Building, Pier 39, the Full House house at Alamo Square, had some toast at the Mill. I also got to meet up with a couple of friends who were visiting (explored Chinatown!) and who live in the city (got to go to the Brit + Co and Twitter HQs!).
I could give pages long of recap for this weekend, but I will spare you. Needless to say, I fell in LOVE with this city. The work hard, play hard mentality. The tininess of it all (only 7 miles across), with the endless possibilities of things to see and explore. I really hope I will be back soon.
Here are some of my favorite moments from the weekend.
