things I love about San Francisco*

There is so much to love about San Francisco but number one is definitely THE PEOPLE.

Yesterday, Maya and Molly came and took us down to the Mission so we could stop in on Derek at The Curiosity Shoppe and check out this hippest arrondisement.  Seriously, two people took time out of their week to come and drive us around--- (yes, Maya-- we DID go to Tartine and man, did I load up on the late afternoon delights) from there we had lunch at the uber fabulous Gracias Madre-- went to the Japan district (yes! coolio tapes of all sorts were procured) and THEN, if you can believe it-- we high-tailed it over the big red bridge and hiked a bit up Mt. Tam where we came across two coyotes.  (Yes, it was right about then that we decided that might be a good time to head back down).

And then we did a teeny side trip to Sausalito for coffee and sunset across the water.

Seriously-- THE PEOPLE of San Francisco are JUST. TOO. KIND.

Number two most favorite thing about SF? 
The cool stuff, great shops, fab restaurants and yummy food.

Today we are headed to the Golden Gate Park, the deYoung Museum and a studio visit with none other than Alix Bluh-- oh dear lord-- this is some kind of good overload.

Bisous, E

*yes, SF and I have a complex relationship-- not so easy to wrap it up and slap on a bow-- but for today, all that I love . . .
