vacation pt 3:san francisco part 1.

after being in the freezing cold states of colorado and kansas, I was happy to be flying to San Francisco: warm, sunny, and full of delicious food.
I hit almost every pastry shop, bakery and macaroon niche.

We ate endless meals while in San Francisco. We realized, 1/2 way through the trip that we hadn't actually eaten a whole meal at one location.
A glass of wine here, a bruschetta there, a salad here, and a desert plate there. It was so wonderful!

first stop after getting of the bart in sunny California: our "not-in-the-city" french boutique hotel.

This place felt like it should have been in the countryside of france, but alas, it was right in union square, San Francisco.

[amazing little nooks in the room]

[breakfast: sun-dried tomato quiche, oatmeal, apple crisp, good local coffee!]

Vacation: part 2. c.: Last days of Denver.

Robert's aunt and uncle took me out to lunch the day after Robert left to head back to Nashville.
They took me to this amazing little cafe/bar and the food was absolutely fabulous!
I ordered a veggie pizza that had onion rings on it, the Urban Cowgirl. We also go a salad with chikpeas and spicy chips on it, jalepeno lime dressing.

City, O' City is so delicious, I would say it's a must while in Denver.

We also took a trip to the anti- Terrorist Museum in Denver, this was amazing, yet a little heavy-hearted. It was a good experience.
