As promised, here are some photos from our short yet unforgettably sweet trip to San Francisco.
Technically, I have been to San Francisco twice before…once in my mother’s womb when she traveled with her best friend (who was also pregnant with her daughter), my dad, and her friend’s husband. My dad still jokes that he knows every public bathroom in San Francisco from their many stops. My second trip was with my family when I was a little girl. So little, that the only thing I vaguely remember was that the streets were steep.
Exploring San Francisco with fresh eyes, I was astounded and inspired at every turn. Stunning architecture, distinctive culture, and delicious food, San Francisco is a must-have travel experience! From my whirlwind trip, the best way I can describe San Francisco is a beautiful mixture of new and old.

Tucked away in an ally near San Francisco’s financial district, BIX is a hidden gem that you will definitely want to check out on your trip. Jeff Holloman, my dad’s lifelong friend who has lived in San Francisco for over twenty years, recommended BIX. With its speakeasy atmosphere, expertly mixed martinis, and best jazz offered in San Fran, you can’t help but feel cool at BIX--perfect for dinner with friends or a romantic evening.
