Weekend Inspiration: My Birthday!

This weekend marks the beginning of summer in my eyes – backyard barbecues are filling up our calendar, warmer weather awaits and summer road trips are await us. What makes Memorial Day weekend even more special is that my birthday always falls on it. Today I turn 28! And I’m excited and giddy about the undiscovered potential of a new year waiting to unfold. As I sit back and reflect on this past year – I can’t believe the milestones and leaps I’ve made. I’ll be celebrating today with family and friends that have each made this last year so special!

happy (celebrating) weekend!

Summer is right around the corner – it’s the official start in my eyes when Memorial day arrives. This weekend is all about celebrating – we’ll be celebrating my birthday (which is tomorrow – YAY!) by driving down to Carmel where we’ll also be celebrating my cousins’ high school graduation. I’m so happy and proud of all her accomplishments and can’t wait to have her in San Francisco next year! I feel like a proud big sister. Then on Sunday it’s the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge, which I’m excited to be in town for because my grandfather walked across it the first day it opened.

What are you up to this three day weekend? Traveling? Exploring your city? Spending time with family? I know it’ll be a good one for all of us to take a few days to unplug and recharge our batteries. I certainly need it!

As you head into the weekend here are a few favorites I’ve loved reading this week.

– A trip to Bi-Rite Creamery.

– Currently coveting all these shoes.

– Love this “borrowed from the boy” look.

– Can’t get over these black and white photos.

Nursery inspiration that a dear friend is pulling together for her little one.
– And lastly, I love how small this world sometimes is – here is a great example.

A big thanks to all of my May sponsors – Mill & Bird, Ruby Lane, Storkie, Pretty Mommy, and Bae Home (one of my favorite SF stores). Each of these sponsors helps support Sacramento Street and I wouldn’t be able to do it without their support.

And with that I’ll see all of you back here on Tuesday. Have a lovely long weekend friends!

time to celebrate . . .

I’m officially in my late-twenties! Sort of strange to say it out loud, but I’m embracing it. It’s amazing to look back on what you have done over the course of a year and this one in particular has felt like I’ve accomplished so many milestones.

What’s on the agenda . . . last night I had a lovely girls dinner with my best friends, today I’ll be driving up to Napa to spend the day at the pool soaking up some much needed sunshine and relaxing in a mineral pool. To top off the day Eric and I will be going to our friends new restaurant that just opened in the city.

Hope all of you have a lovely day and I’ll see all of you back here tomorrow!

balloons + celebration

Today, I’m happy to share that it’s my birthday! I’ll be celebrating tonight with my hubby and best friends at one of my favorite little restaurants in San Francisco. I can’t wait for yummy food, wine and hopefully some delicious dessert! This weekend I’ll be celebrating in style at a party a friend put together for May birthdays . . . we’ll be dancing the night away celebrating four birthdays. Needless to say, I’m one happy, happy girl!

Happy Birthday Honey!

Today is my sweetie’s birthday. I’ve been so wrapped up in our wedding festivities and planning that it’s been hard to plan anything this year for his birthday dinner. But the grocery shopping is done, the presents are wrapped and . . .

. . . a little sweet treat with candles shinning bright will be present. Wish his twin brother could celebrate with us. Luckily, we’ll see him next week.

Happy happy birthday my love!
