12 months ago

I went Home ♥
for spring break and did the most sight-seeing
I have ever done around the peninsula (sf-bay area).
My boyfriend and I decide that we had to do something each day
we were there and take LOTS of pictures, 
which I never got around to sharing.. So 12 months later..
Here are some of my favorites!

Day 1: We went to the Winchester Mystery House
(San Jose, Ca)
We had so much fun on the house tour!
I loved all the details that the "crazy" owner Sarah Winchester
put into her growing house - if you have any interest in
old Tiffany glass and "ghosts" you should check this place out.







Day 2: We went to the San Francisco Zoo
I hadn't been there since grade school but I think
I appreciated it now more than ever.. especially since I have my own
lil guy (Smalls) so I just have a super soft spot for all animals.











This little guy stole my heart that day ♥ how cute is he?


Day 3: We headed to the Legion of Honor to see the Cartier exhibit
I had never been there before.. THE View was breathtaking!
I had also never seen the GGBridge from that side (the entrance side).
Unfortunately, I did not take pictures of the AMAZING jewels
but if the exhibit is traveling in your area I highly recommend
that you visit.

   

I cannot wait to journey home again.
I took it for granted when growing up..

Have you visited Northern California??
If so, Do you have a favorite sight-seeing destination?

  12. I grew up in Elk Grove before moving to Los Angeles, but my heart is always in NorCal! Over Christmas my boyfriend and I spent a few days in SF, and even though we've been there tons of times, it was nice to get out and act like tourists! Your photos are just stunning- love them all!

    Hugs xx
