Our annual trip to SF......

There is nothing like the feel of the hustle and bustle of a big city at Christmas time. It is magical !!!! SF is beautiful at the holidays. Every store and building has lights and/or decorations.

Love this picture. It is coming out of the tunnel over the Bay Bridge. We had the threat of rain on this trip, but it never did.
Claire and I at Union Square :)
The beautiful, 3 story tall, Christmas tree inside Neiman Marcus.

I *heart* Anthropologie !!!!!!!!!!!!

I mean, I need to stay FAR away from this place !!!!!! Not so much their clothes, which I love, but way to pricey for me....but all the fun home stuff. I have bought lots and lots of gifts from there. As a matter of fact, their Christmas wrap this year, the ribbon is twill tape with buttons sewn on it. Anyway, I got this DARLING goodie in the mail today. It is a 15% off coupon to celebrate my birthday. Forget the coupon, look at the darling little pouch it came in !!!!!!!!!!!! Oh how I LOVE Anthropologie :)

December 1st......

Don't get to busy you forget to enjoy the little things this holiday season.....hohoho !!!!
