i left my heart in san francisco…

…just kidding. i didn’t.
but i easily could have. i liked that place a bit too much and i think josh is worried because i won’t stop talking about it. the cooler temperatures, the food, the colorful homes on steep hills and that glorious golden gate bridge all covered up in fog… gosh that city is pretty.
i have more photos to share but my computer just told me my start up disk is full. (so fun.) so this was all i was able to upload for now. have a wonderful weekend! if you’re spending it in san francisco, please don’t tell me.

  1. glad you enjoyed our little slice of heaven. :)

  2. My boyfriend and I also just got back from a trip to San Francisco, and man, I loved that city! The cooler temperatures were so nice and everything so lovely.

    i'm spending my weekend in san fransico.
    just kidding ;)

    i adore that photo of you and eleanor. and little samson! so precious.

  4. I think San Francisco is one of the greatest places on earth! No wonder it was hard to leave!

    And yes, I agree! Eleanor has such beautiful eyes! Lucky girl.

  5. i know how you feel. even thinking about california hurts my feelings.

  6. Such a magical city! We went there on our honeymoon almost five years ago and I want to revisit so badly. For now I watch a few favorite movies set in one of my favorite cities – the princess diaries and yours, mine and ours (with Lucille ball and Henry Fonda) I love identifying the places I recognize!

    as someone who has lived in the bay area their whole life and in san francisco for five years it truly is a great city, complete with crazies, interesting, beautiful and fun people. if i ever did leave, my heart would most definitely stay.

  12. wow that's a big ice cream for a little girl :-) ha she's so cute!

  13. San Fran is definitely one of my favorite cities! Love it and thanks for sharing some great photos!

    Naomi, if you get half a second…I know you're super busy right now….can you tell me where you got your jeans? I need a pair to go to Lake Tahoe, and yours are super adorable. P.S. You know I'm sure San Francisco has a ballet you could dance in if you moved there. Just saying;)

    if you like san fran, you HAVE to visit portland and seattle!

  26. san francisco is pretty much my favorite place ever! i'm about 8 hours away by car and it's tempting to drive up there now after seeing your post!

  27. Cute pictures…I love San Francisco! I remember being surprised to find those orange street cars (like the one in your picture) when I went there…those are old street cars from Milan, Italy (the city my mom comes from), they even have the cities emblem on them…I have no idea why they are there!

  28. Sini

    Beautiful images! I would love to visit San Francisco and USA in general. I know this isn't a beauty blog (and one reason why I love it!) but could you tell little bit more sometimes of your style and how you do your hair? :) You all are just simply stunning!

  29. san francisco brings back fond memories! by the way. where do you purchase your kids clothing?

  30. Anna

    ugh, isn't san francisco so dreamy? i fell in love with it on our honeymoon a couple years ago and have been dying to go back ever since. love the photos!

  32. Yeah San Francisco is one of my favorite places!

  33. Kristal

    I spent my bday there last year. It's a beautiful city! I love your jean jacket! Great pics!

  34. Aww, I love this post. I haven't spent a lot of time in San Fran recently. The last time I was there i was 13. Now that I am 29, I say I am do for a visit, and this post easily convinced me :) Also, E with her ice cream made my heart melt! xx Jen

  35. Rossini

  37. Benthe
