Last Friday, the Red Head and I caught a flight after work and headed to San Francisco for the weekend! The weather was great, the company was even better and we had an absolute blast! I seriously couldn’t have had a better three days. I can’t wait to go back one day. Maybe this weekend when the cold weather and snow return? Might have to make that happen. While all the memories are fresh, I just had to share some snaps from our trip. As always, follow along @elissa_erickson for real time updates.
Seeing green leaves and flowers was so nice. At one point, we just lounged in the grass. We haven’t seen ours in months and needed a fix.
Somewhere between the Horchata ice cream and the fresh oysters, I lost track of the stops we made at the Ferry Building. So delicious and beautiful. And busy.
NOPA was a great brunch spot. The cheddar biscuits… to good. And, of course, you can never go wrong with a blood orange mimosa. Thanks for the recommendation, Jessica!
The spoils of the Ferry Building Marketplace. Saving the Mast Brothers chocolate for a rainy and loving my Heath Ceramics bud vase.
On Sunday, we visited Napa. Our first stop was Castello di Amoroso. Not too shabby for a $50 million castle. And the wine was delicious too, of course.
My favorite tasting of the day was at Orin Swift. The people were so friendly, the decor was totally my vibe and the wine was on point.
Wine, wine and more wine!
I could have stared at the trees all day. I swear, most of my time this weekend was spent gazing at green leaves and blue skies. A welcome break from the Minnesota landscape of late.
See what I mean? Way better than two feet of snow.
I have the best friends.
We visited Palace of the Fine Arts Theatre on our way out of town and am so glad we did. Such a beauty.
Of course we needed a Golden Gate Bridge photo! Thanks for having us, San Francisco. We’ll be back one day (soon, I hope)!
