Rob and I’s first trip together as a couple was to San Francisco. It was over 6-7 years ago, gah were we young, but I still have fond memories of riding bikes over the Golden Gate bridge into Sausalito, eating dim sum in China Town, visiting Alcatraz, hiking up those crazy steep streets and walking down the curvy Lombard Street. It was one of those trips that I’ll always remember and cherish.
On that trip, I really fell in love with the city and if it wasn’t so dang expensive to live there, I’d probably be petitioning for a move out to the West Coast. I could definitely get on board with living just an hour away from wine country. Anyone else?
On our last day in California a few weeks ago, we were able to make a stop through San Francisco on our way out of Sonoma. We didn’t have too much time before our flight, but it was an absolutely beautiful day (like zero clouds or fog), so we had to take advantage.
My obsession with off the shoulder tops continues and this one I wore that day is already a new favorite. It’s casual, comfortable and very affordable (just $36!). I had developed a little tan line from the day before, so this helped me get rid of it, ha! I wore it with a pair of skinny jeans and lace-up chunky heels (also well-priced!), and this woven suede bag from Welden. I have to admit, it was hotter than I imagined and I wished I had worn my denim shorts, but every other time I’ve been to San Francisco, it’s been so much cooler and frankly, I didn’t trust the forecast.
We popped into this adorable little taco spot in the Mission District called Tacolicious for lunch. We had only had breakfast a couple hours before, but I couldn’t resist a few delicious tacos and one of the best margaritas I’ve ever had. Actually I’m not even sure if it was classified as a margarita, but it had lime, tequila, pineapple juice and coconut water and was so refreshing!
The restaurant itself had really bright fun tile floors — I need something like this in my house someday, anyone else?! After we left, we walked back through the adorable neighborhoods, I’m obsessed with the architecture and bright colors, before finally heading to the airport.
The whole trip was amazing and my only complaint was that (like most) it wasn’t longer. I could have used another lazy day in Sonoma or a full day in San Francisco. If you’re dating or married, you know how hard it can be to find couples to travel with, so we felt really lucky that we had such a good time with our friends Megan and Corey and we look forward to traveling more with them in the future.
That trip was our last one until mid-June and as fun as it was, I’m looking forward to a little break. April was filled with trips and May is looking a little lazy and I’m totally okay with that.
After lots of travel, do you like simply being home? What trips are you looking forward to this summer?!
