Back in the Bay

It’s been a week since I spent the weekend in L.A. and, if you ever wanna get a new perspective of the city you live in (and possibly yourself), all you need to do is take a break from it and shake up your routine.  Needless to say, I’m not taking anything away from Los Angeles, because it’s a great place and has a SoCal vibe and style all its own; however, when I returned to San Francisco, I had a renewed appreciation for the city and a greater sense of humility toward everything S.F. has to offer, the good and the bad.

Perhaps, while moving through the day-to-day routine, my need to pause and count my blessings (big and small) got ignored and lost in the daily shuffle.  Now, I will be more mindful to “Stop and smell the roses,” even if it’s only for a few minutes each day.  Anyway, I would like to share a few photos with you.  Enjoy.

The Golden Gate Bridge

This photo is of the Pacific Ocean, just minutes beyond the bay and Golden Gate Bridge.

If you look closely, you can see the sailboats.

Here’s a local, independent, retail shop with a funny name.

Gotta give it up for local businesses, regardless of the city, right? Keep that local economy moving.

And then, there is this guy!

My new best friend… I love you, man.

I know the last picture is totally random, but I had to throw it in there.  Why?  Because, every city is better when you have a friend with you.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I’ll be back in a few days with something new.  Now, go do something nice for yourself, anything that makes you smile. 🙂
