Easter cookie decorating with friends in the cutest little San Francisco backyard.
There is so much beauty to be seen.
Taking it all in.
I am grateful to have such a beautiful place to live in. Not so much the apartment itself (revamped military camp isn’t exactly my idea of luxury), but we are surrounded with grass, trees, flowers, the beach(!), lots of pretty walking trails and a secret swing at the top of the hill to see the whole beach. Plus, the playground right down the street is perfect for that hour before dinner when you think you’re going to go crazy if you stay inside any longer.
Checkin out the city from the top of Twin Peaks. I was pleasantly surprised to know I can drive comfortably in my car all the way to the top and right up to the lookout point. I had this fear you had to hike to the top to get the good view. Phew! No breakin a sweat here.
Look closely, you might find the Golden Gate Bridge. ^
It is wiiiiiiiindy.
California Academy of Science on free day with Grace and Revy.
It is beautiful how many colors there are in the sea. Between all the different fish and the plants it is just gorgeous to look at. We even saw Nemo.
The coast is such a beautiful place. Living right next to it aint half bad either.
We acted like we like each other so we could enjoy some family time together. ;)
I made these cookies for cooking group to follow the ingredient being used: cinnamon. Simple ingredients, simply tasty. They were well received. Give them a try!
