A Bit of San Francisco.

On my recent trip to San Francisco I stumbled across the Women's Building in the Mission District. I had been told to see it, but then happened upon it without even trying. The murals are stunning. And the singing and dancing coming out of the open window made my heart full. I think I could've stayed all day and listened to the sounds emanating from the building.

I was also bound and determined to get to Tartine for their morning buns. It was my birthday morning, and so we went. Behold my morning bun....(insert angels singing)

We also tried their brioche bread pudding with seasonal fruit, which was so good too. Another place I could've stayed awhile...in fact, I saw a few other things that looked amazing (perhaps next trip?). We walked Valencia, and went into some shops...made a few purchases, and then drove around the area a bit. C is obsessed with getting his bearings in new places, and exploring neighborhoods. The day brought some challenges due to the fact that we were driving....and let's face it public transportation is the best way to get around the city. Due to C's aforementioned obsession, we drove. It was really fun to see the neighborhoods - I could look at homes/buildings/architecture all day, so in the end we were both happy. Oh! and did I mention that right after breakfast we went over and had ice cream at bi-rite? Nothing wrong with a little sugar overload first thing in the morning right? It was so worth it! I'd love to spend a little more time in the mission. There were so many shops and eateries to experience. I think a girls trip is in order. Any takers?...

I'll be sharing more pictures soon.
