Today, we went to a super fun birthday party in Golden Gate Park. Despite living in the city for three years now, we have not visited this park nearly enough.  There is just so much to see and do there – and it was a perfect spot for a first birthday party.  After the adorable birthday party, we wandered over to the Koret Children’s Quarter playground in the park, which (according to the sign there) was the first public children’s playground in the US, established in 1887.  It’s a fun (and very large) playground with lots to do.  (more…)

The Ferry Building

Without a doubt, when people come to visit me here in San Francisco, one of the very first places that I take them is to the Ferry Building.  Even when we don’t have friends visiting, the farmers’  market there is one of our very favorite weekend activities.  If you’re coming to SF, I highly recommend you carve out a few hours to visit it – it is well worth it!  (more…)

Absinthe

If you haven’t been to Absinthe in San Francisco, you owe it a visit.  It is delicious!  I had some friends in town this past weekend and it was our Sunday night dinner spot.  It is one of our favorites and did not disappoint this weekend.  Absinthe is a darling French brassiere in Hayes Valley, where the ambiance is fabulous and the food delicious!  (more…)

Packing for Fog City

This weekend, two of my dearest girlfriends are coming to San Francisco for a much-needed girls’ weekend and I cannot wait!  It’s sure to be a time filled with wine, good food, shopping, heart talks and LOTS of laughter.

Whenever friends come to visit San Francisco, I get the same question – “What do I pack?”  It’s completely understandable.  A lot of my friends are coming from Texas, where it is generally hot and very humid and it’s hard when you’ve worn shorts and flops for the past 8 months to figure out what to wear in a city with weather patterns as crazy as SF’s.  San Francisco is a big city that is comprised of many small neighborhoods that are really almost like small towns themselves.   (more…)

Custom Bridal Designs

I’m currently working on several custom bridal and bridesmaid jewelry orders.  I absolutely LOVE this part of designing.  I love making something unique for the bride and her friends – something that will enhance their dresses, make them feel even more beautiful on the special day AND be something that the will actually wear again and again (unlike those dresses, beautiful as they may be!)  And each time they put that jewelry on, they’ll get to re-live their special day just a bit.  (more…)
