San Francisco Weekend

I spent a golden weekend in the golden state celebrating my friend Jenna’s birthday. We visited Chinatown, the mission district, the full house house, Sausalito, the ferry building, and Ghirardelli square. We walked 35 miles (this is almost accurate), climbed so many hills, rode a cable car, explored Muir Woods, and biked across the Golden Gate Bridge. We ate delicious food and drank not enough cocktails. We packed so much into three days! This was my first time visiting San Francisco and hopefully won’t be my last. It was a wonderful weekend and I wanted to share some of my photos with you!

Summertime Songs

I associate music with seasons of my life. I also get in music rutts and will only listen to one cd, artist or single song for months (um… or longer).  Summer songs do not necessarily have to be beachy or super upbeat for me. They just have to evoke some sort of summerish nostalgia type feeling. Real specific, huh?

My top 10 favorite nostalgic summer songs:
1. Ten Dead Dogs – Wild Sweet Orange
2. Summer in the City – The Lovin Spoonful
3. Thirteen – Ben Kweller
4. Feminine Mind – Chris Merritt
5. West Coast – Coconut Records
6. California – Copeland
7. Paralyze – Gasoline Heart
8. Time of the Season – The Zombies
9. Made to Love – Toby Mac
10. Robert Randolph and the Family Band – Ain’t Nothing Wrong With That
