Eye Candy

This past Saturday I visited San Francisco for the first time ever. The city itself was amazing although the weather was pretty dreadful-- 50-some degrees and foggy. I'd been warned to expect such a climate but was still a little shocked by the chill in the air.

The weather was nothing compared to the fascinating rowhouses in the city. As much as I had anticipated the gorgeous architecture, I was still blown away by the zany use of color, intricate plasterwork, and the sheer individuality of each building.

Oh fleet week was so fun! I'm actually moving back to Boston at the end of the summer so I can finnish up my senior year and do that graduating thing I keep hearing about. After that I'm not really sure what my plans are, I suppose it all depends on if and where I get a job. My gentleman friend is pretty much in Boston for good since he owns a restaurant but I get the worst itchy feet, I never stay in one place too long. I would love to move back to NYC but who knows where the road will take me. I also often entertain the thought of moving back to London.
