In San Francisco for the weekend!

Standard

I’m spending the weekend in San Francisco, and I’m really excited to spend some time in the city (The City).

Although I’m not as Bay Area as some. . .ahem. . .Lando. . .

. . .San Francisco holds a special place in my heart.  Paco and I spent five years there post graduation, lived in a variety of charming  (drafty/overpriced) apartments, and have a lot of fond memories there!

Weekend trips and visiting friends

Standard

There have been some great deals on domestic airfare lately, so I have been trying to take advantage!  One of my resolutions when I moved to Los Angeles was to make a point of keeping in touch with friends. It is far too easy to put off visits, I mean, it’s a hassle to fly anywhere, it costs money, and it’s so easy to stay in L.A. with my boys (Paco and the doggies). Plus, we generally use our travel time to take bigger/longer vacations.

Last year, we had several weddings (including our own) to attend, plus the accompanying bachelor/bachelorette parties. There were lots of built-in excuses to have mini-reunions. This year, I have a few trips planned already for the first few months. Next month I’m visiting San Francisco, then next month Washington, D.C., then in April, Santa Barbara. It’s going to be a busy spring!
