San Francisco Lately

Well you guys, we are down to the wire for 2016. Here we are on December 3rd with only 28 days left in the year. Do you find this as shocking as I do?! I’ve been trying to spend some time mentally plotting and planning for some new year’s resolutions. I’m trying not to go too crazy with my list, as I’ve found the longer the list, the shorter amount of time I actually stick to the list. “Be realistic, Kathryn,” I keep reminding myself.

The Tastiest Pastry in San Francisco…And Waiting in Line For It

You know, I am far from being the world’s most patient person. Yet, I’ve been known to wait in lines. Lines for brunch. Lines for cookies. Lines for crazy, explosive milkshakes. Oh, and let’s not forget about that time I persuaded Derek to wait in that never-ending line for cronuts with me. Hmm, does anyone else recognize this pattern here? Yep, I sense it, too. I’ve pretty much confessed I will stand in line and happily wait…for food.

Luckily for us, Derek and I had heard about Off the Grid right before it ended for the year. Ah, to think about how sad my tastebuds would have been if we’d missed the food-trucks and would have had to wait until the spring of 2017!!

A Colorful Wall of Gratitude

Last week at work, we celebrated Thanksgiving early. Everyone stepped away from their computers, put down their phones, pressed pause on their work brains and all gathered together to celebrate. While anxiously waiting in line for the delicious-looking feast that could be smelt from down the hall, we were each given a sticky note to write down what we were thankful for. Seems like a pretty simple concept, yet to see everyone’s sticky notes all clustered together was pretty incredible.

The Village on the Hill

Perched way up high on the southeast side of the city lies Potrero Hill. Filled with laid-back locals, cozy coffee shops, and stunning views of a perfectly framed downtown skyline, there is no wonder why this neighborhood is so beloved. Oh, and how could I forget to mention these streets are home to some of the best breweries in San Francisco — cough, cough, Anchor Steam!
