Apple Picking at Gabriel Farm

I put off writing this post because of the fires that were happening in the region. I am happy to report that this farm was not affected by the fires and is still open for u-pick. Persimmon and Guava season starts next weekend! Below are more photos and the details of our apple picking adventures at Gabriel Farms. 


Coffee Pit Stop by Ocean Beach

Trouble Coffee is a funky hole in the wall coffee shop in Outer Sunset. It doesn't have a lot of seating inside but there's a bench outside and a little parklet where you can sit. I'm writing about it here because it's a great place to pick up a drink before heading to Ocean Beach or the Blackbird Bookstore next door

Mama Time at Scribe Winery in Sonoma

Every mama needs some girl time now and then. A little time to unwind and not put someone else's needs ahead of her own. A little time to dress up and not have yogurt on her pants. Thanks to my good friend Danielle, I recently got the opportunity to have some mama time at Scribe Winery in Sonoma.

Brunch at Terrain Cafe in Palo Alto

Recently, we found a great brunch place in Palo Alto that is connected to the Anthropologie store. Because it is part of the store you can tell they keep the Anthropologie aesthetic in mind. Its decor is rustic and natural with things like hanging terrariums. This cute cafe is kid friendly and also serves a delicious brunch.

Mommy and Me Toast Date at The Mill

I had heard so much about San Francisco's $4.00 toast that I had to find out what the big deal was all about. I looked it up online first and found some critics stating that a toast restaurant was a crazy idea but to me it sounded perfect. I came across the website for the mill which says "We baked some bread and brewed some coffee for you." That's basically a perfect welcome from a close friend. So I decided to take Atlas and check them out. I love coffee and Atlas loves toast, perfect combo.

Summer in San Francisco

I was trying to describe summer in San Francisco to a friend and I realized it's easier to describe with photos. The photos for this post were taken on the same day from my living room to show how the fog comes in and out of the city. 

Croissant Dates at Le Marais Bakery

We found the cutest little bakery the other day in the Castro neighborhood. The charming baby blue exterior, big windows and black and white details at Le Marais Bakery immediately caught my attention.  Once we were inside we were convinced to stay by the dreamy lighting and the taste of the coffee and croissants.
