Roadtrip: San Francisco

A few pics from a fun road trip with Tyler and our friend Steve… Our mission: to see the Mary Blair exhibit at the Disney Family Museum. So with less than a month left in the exhibition, we all hopped in the car early on a Saturday morning, took off from LA and spent the next 24 hours sightseeing in San Francisco.

After being thoroughly dazzled by Mary and Walt we hit up some touristy spots like Lombard Street, and no visit to SF would feel complete for a few 90s kids without swinging by the Full House house (the theme song was stuck in my head for daaaays afterwards!) My favorite moments involved wandering around neighborhoods, taking in all of the uniquely beautiful historic architecture and enjoying the cool early-fall weather in the Presidio, which inspired this painting. Then trying to choose from the overwhelming card selection at Rare Device (I went home with this one) chased by a honey lavender + basil cone from Bi-Rite Creamery… So perfect!         
We happened to be in the city just a few days after the passing of Robin Williams and decided to spend a quiet moment taking in the growing memorial on the steps of the Mrs. Doubtfire house. Being there in person and reading the sea of loving notes at the site of the movie that I had watched so many times, it was overwhelming in an even bigger way than I'd expected. It felt like saying goodbye to a great friend.    
San Francisco, you are one of best and the friendliest. After just one day I totally understand how so many people fall in love with this city… It's warm and welcoming and feels every bit like home.  And I can't wait to go back!
