Hello! Today I’m showing you a San Francisco Studio Airbnb where we stayed (Howard is still there and I’m on my way to Jacksonville, FL to meet the movers). It’s sparkling clean and well stocked.
There is also a great gluten free dessert, new design book and more. Annie and Cindy are also sharing their favorites at the end of the post.
1. Trader Joe’s Vanilla Mochi
Have you tried their mochi? Vanilla ice cream surrounded by sweet rice dough…delish! 80 calories per serving, so it’s sort of portion controlled if you can eat just one!
They also have green tea and mango versions.
2. What to Read: A New Design Book
“At Home on The Water” by Jaci Conry
Our new home isn’t on the water like these in this book…but it’s close enough! And we have a hanging bed like in the photo off of the primary bedroom.
“Coastal havens designed for laid-back living. The idea of a retreat―a place removed from one’s daily stressors, a secluded haven to be enjoyed by family–is more appealing than it has been in decades.”
3. What To Watch
“Ladies In Lavender.” Somehow I missed this pleasant movie from 2004. It’s free on Prime Video. The scenery and music are lovely.
“Aging spinster sisters Ursula (Judi Dench) and Janet (Maggie Smith) discover a young man near death on the beach by their home in a small Cornish fishing village. Taking him in, they discover that he is Andrea, a violinist from Krakow, Poland.”
4. San Francisco Sparkling Airbnb Studio: Live Like A Local
With our apartment cleared out and the furniture on the way to Florida, Howard, Chief and I have been staying in this nice little Airbnb studio apartment. It has a sunny private garden which makes the space feel larger.
You can walk to the restaurants and shops in the Marina so that you don’t really need a car. The host is renting it for 30 days or longer. I’d wait to come in the Fall (June and July can be foggy).
5. A Fond Farewell To San Francisco
Last Wednesday, I had such a nice time with some blogger/instagram pals. We were celebrating Heidi’s birthday and my departure. But that is the good thing about social media…we will never really be that far away and hopefully we will make our “girls’ trip dreams” come true.
There are many things to admire about these talented women apart from their creativity. They are supportive, kind…and funny!
Au Revoir San Francisco
Our SF Home tour here.
I will miss so many wonderful people in the Bay Area. To all my clients who became dear friends (thank you)…remember that I’m just an email or phone call away.
My favorite walks with Chief in what I honestly believe is the most beautiful city in the world.
There is a reason for the lyric “I left my heart in San Francisco” because a large part of mine will stay behind.
We’ve leaving sunsets over the Pacific for sunrises over the Atlantic. And more adventures ahead. Thanks for hanging with me.
If you are new here, each Sunday I share my top five favorite things along with my friends, Cindy and Annie. It’s like our weekly “catch-up” phone call. If you would like to receive this series every week, please sign up HERE.
