On Sunday we had plans to meet my family (who were in town from Oregon) and head to our friends house for dinner and a little dog meet-up. Since the weather was so nice, Mike and I decided to make our way up to the city earlier to make a day out of it. We started off downtown at Zara. We then made our way to our old neighborhood and picked up Taco Bar before heading to Lafayette Park. This park was under construction just before we moved, so to see it’s transformation was so exciting. They really did an incredible job! You know the weather is amazing when you get to eat lunch in the sun without freezing your butt off. We could not have asked for a better day. We ended the night at our friends house in Twin Peaks with their two dogs and take-out Thai food from Marni (a local favorite).

It felt great to be back in the city I love so much (especially on such a warm day and with everyone out of town for the holidays) and to see Lola take it all in for her first time.

    how great to be back in SF! I love how “empty” the city gets when people travel for holidays. It feels so different. I remember visiting my friend in NYC once during holiday (not winter holiday…I think it was Memorial weekend or something) and it was so empty that it was surreal! I loved it personally hehe.
