These Days

Put aside my list of favorite wineries and decided to try a new one: Whetstone Wine Cellars. Verdict? Very positive!

Been wearing my new Gucci loafers all day, every day. Seriously.

The views of the Golden Gate Bridge from Kirby Cove cannot be beat.

I love most homes in San Francisco, but this one may be my favorite.

The donuts from Grand Lake Kitchen are the weekend brunch treat.

These Days

Still so inspired by our trip to Thailand, which you can clearly see in our bedroom.

This new-ish spot in Hayes Valley is my dream happy hour venue.

 

Little Yosemite is almostttttt as stunning as the real thing.

Picked up some new succulents for our kitchen at The Dry Garden.

So happy I treated myself to new sunglasses for my birthday. I’m in love!

26!

The past couple of years, I’ve gone all out and hosted my birthday at my home (see my tea party and picnic), but this year I decided to do things differently. While I love entertaining, there’s no denying that it is a ton of work and I wanted to take things a little easier this year. The best part? Even though I didn’t go all out and host a fête at home, I still had one of the best birthdays ever.

Since my actual birthday fell on a Wednesday, my boyfriend and I celebrated it by going to dinner at the stunning Tartine Manufactory. This place was everything I could have asked for and more. I mean, just look at the photos!

That Friday, we took the day off work, packed the car, and headed to Napa County. While we had originally planned to spend the entire day in Yountville–a quaint little town in the North Bay–we ended up making our way to St. Helena and Calistoga, too. Just driving from town to town is breathtaking, let alone walking around each neighborhood and breathing in the fresh, warm air. Needless to say, it was a really good day.

I ended my birthday weekend with a brunch at Serpentine, surrounded by my closest friends. It was such a lovely morning filled with lots of mimosas, conversation, and celebration.
