I will be posting new/recent work tomorrow!  So excited to share :) :) :)

SF recap four!

YOSEMITE.  Rocks.  Water.  Trees.  All natural.  That's all I'm going to say about this.  Oh I guess I should say this too: GO if you ever get the chance!  Just...stay a while (we didn't).

SF recap three!

Okay...this one is ALL about coffee & food.  So, be prepared to have your hunger increase. Don't say I didn't warn you!  The food may have been one of my top 3 favorite parts about this trip...seriously.  It was so gooooooood!  Here is the proof...


 PS...I would recommend all of these as necessary stops on a visit to SF.
Except for one, I'll tell you that under the picture! 

slow club.  best food.
favorite lunch/dinner meal for sure.

slow club-my pasta!

umi sushi.
okay, sushi is delicious.  period.  but, there can definitely be GOOD sushi and okay sushi.
honestly, for me, this was okay sushi.  so, I wouldn't say it's a necessary SF stop.

tartine bakery!!
a beautiful place.  check THIS book/cookbook out!  so cool!

tartine rocher treat.
my tartine bakery treat.  a rocher with cocoa nibs.

BI-RITE creamery!  ohhh my.
I got honey lavendar!!  definitely my favorite dessert.  ohh....
but naia gelato is always delicious too!  I got pistachio and choco-orange there...

favorite breakfast place for suuuuure.  SO good.

plow (love the ribbony cursive)
and, of course, the design in/of plow is just wonderful....


four barrel.
we met some really wonderful folks here.  probably felt most at home here too as far as coffee goes.  and, the leka wato on the v60 was one of the MOST delicious cups of coffee I have ever had.

four barrel friends.
four barrel.  wonderful aesthetically too!

four barrel light.

sight glass coffee.
just a "stand" at the opening of their shop for now.
this place is going to be even more incredible when their full space opens up mid-june.

sight glass has air plants!  AH!
sight glass.  I think I favor them the most in terms of design feel!  though I feel I can't fully judge since the shop isn't really open.  well, they won me over of course with the air plants in the wall...

sight glass coffee.

inspired by: two.

I'm going to give you a break from my recaps for some lovely inspirational photos! Remember Andrew & Carissa?  Well, Carissa does another fun/inspirational photo thing with a lady named Beth.  It is called "two".  The concept is: two people who post two photographs once a week, with one theme per month.  These are my favorites so far:

I'll share more recaps Monday & Tuesday, and then...on Wednesday,
I'm going to share some more photos of my new work!! Yayyyy!  Get excited :)
Happy Friday!
