Save Me, San Francisco



Hey y'all! Welp, today was my first full day in beautiful, chilly San Francisco...emphasis on the chilly part. In fact, it was downright COLD tonight at dinner! But that's totally ok, because I'll take 57 degrees and windy over sweltering heat/humidity ANY day of the week : )


So anywhozit...I woke up at 5:30 a.m. California time this morning and had a mini-heart attack, thinking I was late for work, haha. Then it dawned on me that a) I was on vacation and did not have to go to work; and b) I was not in Arkansas, it was freakin' early and I probably needed to go back to sleep for 2 more hours.


So after a couple of additional hours of sleep, we got up, got ready and headed out for a day-long drive down the gorgeous Pacific coastline.


And gorgeous it was....oh my, y'all. Perfection. See Exhibit A, below.



I'm a dork and think everything needs a soundtrack, so I downloaded a ton of San Francisco/California themed songs this morning before we left, (one of which inspired the title for this post.)



Brandon Boyd's new solo album The Wild Trapeze served as my road trip background noise today, as every song just jived perfectly with surroundings.


On the agenda for tomorrow: Chinatown, baby! I'm in search of a new knock-off for fall, (the latest Balenciaga tote, perhaps?)


Until then, sweet dreams.


Be blessed, lovelies-

  5. My lil sis lives there and she can't count the number of tourists she sees freezing b/c they think it's going to be warmer since it's Cali right? Continue to have a blast.

  11. Even though I'm definitely an East Coaster, I definitely think the West Coast is prettier!
