Y’all.

(and yes, I realize the irony of opening a post about SF with “y’all”)

So far, I love San Francisco. Granted, I have been here all of 48-ish hours, but still. I’m loving it.

A few things:

  1. People here are very, very nice. And outgoing. My first afternoon, my cab driver gave me a free ride. Then, yesterday morning at Philz Coffee (just about a 10 minute walk from my apartment, very delicious. Very dangerous) my coffee barista gave me a really kind welcome. And loved telling me all about the coffee they brew. And I saw him again this morning! I may become a regular.
  2. The weather. THE WEATHER. It may just be because GA is experiencing 90* weather in September STILL, but a world where the high temps are right around 70* are fantastic. It’s been sunny, but breezy, and nights are just as charmingly cool as people told me they would be.
  3. I love walking everywhere. As most of y’all know, I sold my beloved Stella. But I’ve always wanted to live in a place where I can walk everywhere. At the same time, these hills are NO JOKE. I thought my neighborhood at home was hilly. Nope, not compared to Dolores/Castro. Woof. The upside of these hills (pun intended, haha)? The views are beautiful and span the entire city. Related note: ran through Golden Gate park this morning. It. Was. Magical.
  4. The food. So far, I’ve visited a few coffee shops, an ice cream shop (no one should be surprised), and a grilled cheese restaurant. All have been fantastic and wonderful and I can’t wait to eat my way through the city.

Here are some pictures of my first few days so far:

Not quite as good as my Monday night grilled cheeses, but still pretty good :)

I guess California is beautiful.
