Things I’m Looking Forward to in San Francisco

San Francisco pancakesIn the last few weeks lists have ruled my life. Lists of the pros and cons of moving, lists of the books I want to buy at the airport, lists of clothes that need storing/packing/selling… Lists make me happy in a very Rory Gilmore kind of way.

I’m currently down South visiting family and friends for the last time before we go. It’s been rather emotional, characterised by a few tears, several roast dinners and lots of slices of homemade cake. To ease the flux of emotions I’ve been making a list of some of the things I’m looking forward to about our move to San Francisco…

Blueberry pancakes with maple syrup for breakfast
Morning runs along the Embarcadero
Weekend adventures to LA, Yosemite Park and Lake Tahoe
Thrift shopping in the Mission District
Swapping one iconic bridge for another
American peanut butter
Shopping trips to Sephora
Browsing Pinterest and Apartment Therapy for tips to make our (inevitably) small flat look good
Listing to this song while browsing the Goodwill on Haight Street
Buying avocados by the bagful
A new adventure

    This brings back so many memories…only we didn’t have sunny San Fran to look forward to! Its ace to be able to live abroad and experience different cultures, I’m sure you’ll love it. Enjoy soaking up all things British while you can! It’s funny, I was never particularly patriotic before we moved, but since we’ve been living abroad that’s started to change. Oh, you have to try pancakes with maple syrup and bacon. I vowed to never eat it but a friend convinced me and it’s gooooooooooooooooooood! x
