My favorite part of the Holiday’s is getting to get super dressed up for parties and soirée’s around town. One thing I have learned is to buy a few party dresses early, because whenever I wait my size ALWAYS seems to be gone. It is known that I have a major obsession with black and gold anything. So this party dress from Closet Candy Boutique was a given. It runs a tiny bit big, so I suggest going down a size! Also I have a thing for this open back.. swoooon.
It’s finally Friday! I feel so fortunate for all of the traveling I have gotten to do lately! These images were taken at Meadowood last week, a luxury resort nestled away in St. Helena. When you arrive at Meadowood you are instantly transported into another world. City dwellers make the escape to Meadowood for relaxation, and travelers may come for the 3 Michelin Star Restaurant. Regardless of why people come, it is clear why you’d want to stay once you get here.
Patrick and I had our Anniversary getaway over the weekend up in Forestville at The Farmhouse Inn. We had such a relaxing stay, I am trying to find a way to get back up there!
One of my favorite parts about living in San Francisco is that I get the hustle and bustle of the city during the week, and can escape for the weekend with just a drive over the bridge. It truly feels like a mini vacation whenever we make the quick hour drive into wine country. For example, if you drive an hour south of San Francisco to Matanzas Creek Winery, you can walk amongst the most stunning lavender fields. It has the most heavenly aroma and you can actually purchase Lavender Essential Oil made on the property. I love putting a couple drops on my pillow before I go to sleep for relaxation and to improve my sleep.
I feel so blessed to have this man in my life. No one in this world deserves to be spoiled more than him. Not just on his Birthday, but every single day. He is the most hard-working and dedicated individual in every aspect of his life, and makes me feel like the luckiest girl in the world. It is not every day that you meet someone who truly makes you want to be a better person and constantly motivates you to be the best version of yourself. I am so grateful that he chose me, and will spend every single day proving how cherished he is. Happy Birthday, Patrick, I’d give you the moon if I could.
Good morning, guys!
It feels bitter sweet to be back in the office catching up after being all over the place for the last week! Wednesday I walked my friend around the entire city and took him to our favorite restaurant! Thursday and Friday was spent wine tasting in Napa. Saturday we went to the most beautiful wedding in Petaluma. Sunday we got back to San Francisco just in time to watch the Air Show from our roof for Fleet Week (this was INSANE, you must go next year!). And yesterday I met one of my favorite photographers, Liz Franco, from Chicago at Mt. Tamalpais (watch my snapchat, we were literally in the clouds! And there is a guest appearance from a very handsome man. SNAPCHAT: thecityblonde).
