Up on the rooftop

Can we talk about how gorgeous my friends are for a hot minute?

They’re my undercover models.

I’ve grown up with these gals and we’ve seen each other at our worst and at our best. No matter what happens or where life takes us, we still hold on to each other. And we’re always, always laughing.

P.S. after getting into trouble for our shanahanigans on the rooftop, our next move included splitting a pitcher of margaritas and tacos for happy hour and planning our next adventure.

What San Francisco taught me

To those who are fortunate enough to experience San Francisco, it’s easy to catch the city’s infectious energy. This city is proudly photogenic and individualistic. Creativity is found everywhere–from the people  entertaining you on your bus rides across town, to the genius concoctions in novelty restaurants and cafés lining Victorian pastel painted houses.

This city is fully alive.

San Francisco taught me that life can be anything you want it to be. Whoever you want to love–love them fiercely. Whatever enthralls you to your bones–push your own limits and create a new project for yourself. I truly believe everyone is creative, they just don’t know it.

Experiment with your senses. As an international city, every type of food you can imagine is probably right around the corner. There is always something to do and see. I’ll admit that I get bored doing the same thing for too long, so I love the opportunities the city always offers (my favorite was the celebration of India at the Festival of Chariots in Golden Gate park).

Go fall in love with San Francisco!

Wednesday’s wisdom: do it with passion

Loving my new home for summer… beautiful San Francisco at dusk

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds, your mind transcends limitations… and you find yourself in a new and wonderful world, dormant forces, facilities and talents come alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person than you ever dreamed.” -Patanjali

 

So friends, what inspires you?
