A Glimpse of San Francisco

Last week I returned from San Francisco where I was visiting my oldest sister.  I have to say that the trip exceeded my expectations.  This was not my first trip to SF, but I went with different expectations this time.  Obviously, I was there to visit my sister and spend time with her, but I also hoped to gain inspiration that I could bring home to my work.  The weather was unseasonably warm and gorgeous, the city was bustling with excitement over the Giants' World Series win and upcoming election and everywhere I went I found inspiring views, foliage and people.  As promised here are a few highlights from my trip below.  Thank you for not judging my iPhone photos, hopefully Santa will bring me a new camera this year!

  I have included a few photos from my visit to

 above.  This was one of my favorite spots in San Francisco and I was blown away when I visited.  I highly recommend you all check out their website to see a little of what I am talking about.  Better yet if you are in the San Francisco area make sure it is a place you visit.  Happy humpday!

The above photos were taken by me, some of the photographs appeared on my Instagram  feed.  Follow me on Instagram by clicking on the pretty green camera button above to see a few more highlights from my trip!
