The tales of a florist, stylist, and photographer keepin' it simple in San Francisco, California. This is the home to my stories, inspirations, photography & (when I get really lucky) travels.

A trip to…

I’m still in search of my own personal opinion of “America’s Finest City”, but I’d say that whoever coined this terminology for San Diego is pretty close to accurate.  It is quite a lovely looking city, and even more-so when you say “screw it” to the traffic on the highway and end up taking the free-of-traffic scenic path alongside the Pacific Ocean.  

Today I was able to catch up with my absolutely gorgeous friend, Becca, who has taken a vow of wearing no-makeup and still looks absolutely stunning.  Becca & her brother PJ and I shared in the tradition of over-eating really delicious Mexican food during Happy Hour.  And boy, were we all happy.

I’ve always had some strong connection to the Chinese New Year—perhaps ever since my family has frequented my home town’s corner Chinese food restaurant and have been endlessly entertained by the little excerpts of each animal. And, next week begins the year of the Horse, and I am a Horse! I predict big things… 

Anyway, it’s wonderful that San Francisco has such a strong connection with Chinese culture.  I hopped over to Chinatown this morning to experience the New Year Flower Festival.  The festival takes place a week before the lunar New Year so that individuals can purchase their traditional holiday plants, flowers, branches, and fruits to ring in the New Year properly.  

By the by—I recently joined a site called TripTease as recommended by their editor Aggie (who gave me a big high five on this blog! Woo!), and it’s definitely feeding the wanderlust in me, and well…the pun is excellent. Check it out!
