Date night. I always judge a Mexican restaurant with the arroz. Azteca's rice was delicious but I didn't care much for the beef burrito-too wet, so I focused my attention on Scott's chicken chimichanga.
I fell in love with the entrance of this store and fell in love even more when I walked in and met Rosie who was kind and sweet. The unique merchandise was even more fun to be around. I could have spent hours in this store.
I avoid Fisherman's Wharf like the plague whenever in SF, but it was destiny that brought me to Rosie's Roses. A relaxing, nature inspired store that sells the city's finest chocolates, flowers, plants, salts and so much more and whose owner is just as lovely and generous with gardening tips. This shop has been added to my must visit list whenever in the Bay Area.
I waited all summer to visit the most beautiful shop in the world. It's like a beautiful present begging to be opened and when you enter you feel like a kid again-happy, giddy and wanting to buy everything!
Joshua, Robert and I could spend hours in this cozy book store located on Clement Street. I'm sure Josh will be spending a lot more time in a book store as he heads to San Jose State University in the fall.
My fascination with cupcakes began on a visit to New York's Magnolia Bakery. Anna and I stood in awe as bakers prepared rows of perfectly shaped cupcakes frosted with a huge mound of pastel shade frosting. What a pretty sight! I am a 39 year old wife and mother from Hawaii. I have been a teacher for 17 years and turn to baking for stress relief. I adore Martha Stewart and have found all her baked goods to be excellent. I have never witnessed a frown on someone who had just received a cupcake . They are the perfect size of goodness!
