Weekends & Chinatown

^Chinatown, SF, as seen by me a few months ago

Woooot! Made it to Friday. Though admittedly, I will be working my tail off all day today and will only celebrate the weekend once the clock strikes midnight. Busy week! I'm not sure what our plans are gonna be for our coveted days off but I wouldn't mind doing some on foot exploring. Been a hot minute since I did that with my husband (aka like a month) and it's one of my fave things to do. PLUS- I'd like to spend some time with the handsome lad as he was gone last weekend for play and then was in DC all week for work. Luckily, there's so many exemplary places to visit around these parts, such as Chinatown. While I've never been to China, I can't imagine that this doesn't almost exactly mimic the bustling market scene available there. Plus, when you get tired of perusing asian tsotchkes, you can stumble into any establishment and be welcomed with hot tea and exquisite soups. I don't even care if it's 90 degrees outside, I'll eat that kinda stuff all day, every day. Kind of on that note, do you know what is especially cool about living in a big city? I hear at least three different languages every single day (excluding English & Spanish). I love that diversity and I've never witnessed it before outside of Europe or NYC.

Happiest weekend to you and yours!

I love the San Francisco Chinatown. I thought the mini fortune cookie factory was really neat!

Hooray for weekends exploring your city! San Fran definitely has one of the best Chinatowns and I could always go for a great bowl of soup! Give me ramen or Pho (even those aren't Chinese) any day of the week! I hope that y'all have a great weekend exploring together!

I drove through Chinatwon when I was there and saw all the little restaurants and been hoping to go back to actually eat there but I'm usually on these trips by myself for work and wasn't sure how safe it was for me to talk around.

Gorgeous pics! One of these days I'll finally make it out to San Fran, and Chinatown is definitely on my must-see list! Enjoy every second of your much needed weekend with the hubs <3

Languages are sure aplenty there. I'd imagine actual China has waaaaaay more people in the way than your Chinatown. Plus it's a tad more dirty and smoggy. Stick with yours lol

Diversity is a beautiful thing...that is why living in Europe feels so wonderful to me. I wish you a beautiful Monday, dear friend.
