I don't think I've ever had a more exhausting or more fun weekend. I spent more time in San Francisco than I normally do and it was a welcome change. It was exciting finally meeting Kim and Andre for the first time after more than a year of blog friendship. They are exactly as I pictured them in my head (in the best kind of way).

We are having the strangest, sunniest, most un-San Francisco-like weather over here and I'm taking advantage of it (though I am eager for fall). Walks on the Embarcadero with David, cliff-side beach sitting with my high school bestie, and foraging in Golden Gate Park (we found wild New Zealand spinach!).

I am so tired, but so happy.

Not pictured: a hilarious and heaven-sent Filipino feast with Norris and Jamie.
All pictures: taken via Instagram. I'm hooked.


  1. glad you're hooked on insta! it's so great! how did you get all your pics to align like that? are you using a photo shop? i have the hardest time uploading my insta to the blog.. lame!

    it's been so hot down in orange county... somethings up. we're taking advantage also!


  2. Our time together was wonderful! I can't believe how much delicious food we ate. Thank you for showing us around. It was an absolute blast. I'll have to send you some pictures from us the golden gate bridge, I think there's a few cute ones. Can't wait to get together again, soon. Kim, XO

  6. Uhm, yeah, that breakfast looks delicious. Hopefully, I'll visit California soon since I have a lot of friends that have moved or are in the process of moving over there!

  7. Absolutely beautiful! San Francisco is one of my favorite places to be. And, thank you for stopping by my blog! If you hadn't, I wouldn't have found your stunning blog!

  8. Meg-- yes, I used Photoshop. I just made a blank canvas and copied each of my photos onto it (after emailing myself the files then saving them onto my computer first). Instagram needs to makes this process a little easier!!

  9. love your blog...

    and now i can be a complete creeper and follow your instagram.

    yay for the wonderful world of social media.
