On a Mission

Just as I had hoped, Jay and I spent last Saturday exploring the city as we walked and talked and discussed the musings of our lives the last couple of weeks. Having spent a large majority of our last few dates heading towards the bay and its peripheral boroughs, this time- we opted to stride inland. We headed over the the Mission District to not only grub on its amazing food and drink but to namely digest their exemplary street art. See for yourself.

After popping repeatedly through the Mission and the Castro , we felt it was time to pause for a bit at Dolores Park. And there we sat in camping chairs and people watched the multiple crazy antics in front of us. With my feet nestled into the bright green grass and the smell of barbeque wafting through the warm air, I couldn't help but think that life is pretty dang good.

Love, love, love all the street art in the Mission District! There's just so many bright colors and fun murals! It's always so much fun when you can get out and explore a different part of your city, and it looks like y'all had so much fun this past weekend! I'm sure that it made up for a crazy week at work last week!

HOLY WOW. I wandered around Mission maybe 7 years ago and it was nothing like this. I can't wait to explore it the next time I'm back in San Fran. These are some of the neatest and brightest murals I've seen!

Is it bad all I looked at was the pic of you and that big wine glass and thought...man I need a drink.
Haha. It's the booze taking over again. I hate it when it does my thinking for me.
