I've been finding myself in Hayes Valley quite a bit lately. The location is central to pretty much anywhere in San Francisco, and it has a funny mix of urban vibes and small-town charm.
The area has not always been pretty or appealing, really, so it's grown in a good way in recent years. There is a little park and green strip of grass in its center, victorian homes and fabulous shops and restaurants surrounding.
Ohhh San Francisco in the middle of Indian summer. I can hardly think of a better place to be. We've become addicted to adventure and exploring, and - unfortunately this week- sweets!! I kind of wish this weather would stay forever... but I also really love boots, tights, and scarves, so I guess it's a win-win at this point.
