you'll leave your heart in san francisco

what a whirlwind weekend! we unexpectedly
found an amazing new studio apartment right 
in downtown san francisco off of union square,
so we said carpe diem and went for it! we packed
things up and moved in the pouring rain this
weekend, and while moving is overwhelming
it's fun and adventurous and our dream...and
that's what we're all about! so here we go!

lots more pictures to come as we get our place
together {probably more after our europe trip
coming up this week}..but here are a few pictures
from our new place, and some love for my
came just in time for our fun new place!
^^ our building!
^^ in love with the lobby + the old classic elevator
^^ gates going out onto the street
^^ we love you, leavenworth st.
to celebrate our move from the south bay into downtown,
i got the perfect sweatshirt from --i fell in love
with it right when i discovered this site from my friend lisa! 
think classic,  retro designs for all your favorite places // activities!

i got this sweatshirt to say i'm obsessed.
i am already emotionally attached to it and know i'll
wear it forever! it is so comfy and classic, and says
one of my favorite phrases about my favorite city
where we get to live right now. i love wearing it
in SF and other places because i'm always repping
my city! unlike tourist shops where you find shirts
like "i♥NY" that aren't very original, homage offers
unique, great designs for the places you love.
my favorite is their destinations page, where you
can find items from all different places. one of 
my favorite parts about this website is that you
can find things for yourself, and it's also SO 
great for gifts. if a friend is moving somewhere
or gets into college, go here to find a unique
sweatshirt for them! i have so much pride in
my college // my city etc, so i LOVE this
site. anyway, if you don't believe me, just 
check it out yourself here and fall in ♥. 
thank me later!
