 and just like that... we're back! oh how time flies when you are truly having fun. for our one year anniversary, reed and i decided that we wanted to take a 9 day vacation to california. we wanted to do the old fashion road trip and rent a car and drive around the state. thats exactly what we did! this was our first time to travel to california and we absolutely loved it. 

our first stop on our anniversary trip was to san francisco. we were so excited to see all that san francisco had to offer especially visiting my best friend jordan and her boyfriend devin. it was so wonderful catching up with them and seeing them in their new city. they definitely played the tour guide roll perfectly and showed us around for the day. our hotel that we stayed at in downtown san francisco was simply our favorite. it was beautiful and i would definitely recommend this to anyone that is going to visit the area. i posted information below as a reference. 

in case you are traveling to san francisco or plan to in the future; i wanted to give you a detailed guide of everything we did with several links of how to find some of the specifics. here it goes:



saturday:
-checked in to our wonderful hotel called "the palace." 
-ate breakfast at "the grove" (wonderful avocado eggs & french toast)
-walked around downtown san fran
-met jordan & devin to see the painted ladies houses
-toured golden gate park
-walked on the golden gate bridge
-ate lunch at tacolicious 
-saw the famous "lombard street"
-shopped at ghiradelli square and also had milkshakes at ghiradelli
