Giants Win (See Jane Excited)

*via
I may not care much about baseball and I also may let out a big sigh every Monday morning when I board the plane to San Francisco, but I loved feeling the excitement in the streets after the Giants won the World Series.  San Francisco really is a magical place, even if my exposure to it is limited as I'm generally cooped up at work while here.  Regardless, I've grown to love many things about this place and even when I leave, I know it will always hold a special place in my heart.  Here are my favorite things about the city by the bay (I've included links, in case you're interested):

 The mountains, the oceans, and the fog.
It never seems to dip below 50 degrees
The W in SoMa (my second home) 
Delicious/fresh sushi at the most unassuming places.
Westfield Mall in Union Square (sometimes you need a mall--and this one is awesome)
 So many restaurants serve local, organic, and delicious food
Cheapest (and best) eyebrow waxes/nails

San Francisco is on my list of cities I've never been to but I'm pretty sure I'd love.

SF has my heart!!! I ran the SF marathon in July and could not have been happier. I try to make it up to the city at least 3 times a month .... the presidio is one of my favorite places and the food in SF mmm Tartine is my ultimate favorite place!!! XO

I love San Francisco too! It's so beautiful there. And I agree about that mall, it's a good one. I just realized I wasn't officially following you! Sorry about that. I am now. I lived in SF for a year after college and it was such a fun place to be. But at the end of the day, I do prefer the weather in LA. I'm a fair weather kind of girl. I still love visiting the city though!

I should fly up there sometime if you have to stay for the weekend and we can hang out. I do love SF - my best friend just moved away from there last year and the place holds great memories. People seem so laid back and there's just so much to see and do (read: great food and a cocktail or two). haha

The giants mayhem looked WILD on tv last night!

xoxo,

I visited there when I was little, but I would love to go back now as an adult and see it newly!

We were very excited too. I've was stuck in San Francisco one night after visiting the wine country. Not a huge fan, must be the situation not the place.

I agree! I work in the city and was born and raised here! The bay area deserved a little excitement! It's wonderful to see our city so hyped up and proud :) If I wasn't working tomorrow, I'd be at the celebration parade!
