Falmouth, the very tippy top of the cape is the best place to go if you want to feel like you live in Stars Hollow (Gilmore Girls reference, if you didn’t get it, go watch it). We wound up here with our friends Kait and Phil last summer and both Phil and I being pastry fiends, I made sure to include a couple of those in here for you guys.
Last summer we decided to have a quick jaunt around Provincetown. When you think of Cape Cod, you think of massive seaside hydrangeas, white wooden beach houses and paddle boarders slowly making their way across the horizon. Provincetown is this, with a side of homemade fudge.
Ahead of an upcoming trip to Cape Cod, we had to go back into the vault and look at pictures from last summer. I realized I never posted some of our favorite memories. One of our favorite places on the cape is the Raw Bar. We took my best friend and college roommate and her boyfriend and dragged them there for a snack.
I have to say we were so pleasantly surprised by the foodie scene in Minneapolis. There’s a pretty heavy Scandinavian, Polish and other eastern European influenced series of food stops. Here are a couple of our recommendations if you have just a few days like we did in the city.
It’s a tale of two coffee places! Ben and I spent the weekend in Minneapolis and given the two hour timezone difference, our lack of energy and decision to still workout at the hotel gym…coffee was a necessity.
A couple weekends ago we really had to escape the cold of San Francisco. Our neighbors have a love love relationship with Bolinas so we finally made our way. The hike? The hike to Alamere Falls, a ten-mile loop (probably actually 8 miles but we had to park far away and we got lost of course) Pictures after the jump.
To give you a little bit of background, this isn’t really a new shop. Sightglass Coffee is a San Francisco staple. One of the few coffee shops that are also roasters. They have a staple, downtown location that is two stories. The industrial concept downtown and additional affogato bar is probably a bigger draw but they’ve finally opened up a shop on Divisadero so we paid it a visit.
Ben and I made our way up to Bernal Heights Hill a bit ago and I thought I’d finally share photos. We’d been meaning to go and we weren’t disappointed. This was easily one of my favorite mini hike/walks in the city. For those of you that aren’t familiar, there are swings around the city that people try and spot. Here is a good round up of them if one isn’t enough.
I’ve been traveling quite a bit for work lately and I thought I’d turn my makeup bag inside out and share some of my go-to’s lately.
When I say quick bite, I mean quick. We had just a day to run a bunch of errands a few weeks ago and we wanted to grab a hearty lunch to keep us going through the rest of the day.
Yountville is the foodie capital of Napa Valley. You must stop here on the way up this side of the valley and grab a snack. In case you’re not familiar – here are all the famed Yountville foodie favorites…
We recently drove our way back from Los Angeles to San Francisco with some precious cargo in tow. We made the most of it and stopped a bunch of times along the way so without further ado here is our loose road trip map…
