  1. This is such a cute post! I just returned from my first ever trip to the US and we spent a lot of time in San Fransisco and the US. You are so lucky to have family there to visit so you have an excuse to go!

  2. OK I think I need that tote in navy!
    We have a Nordstrom in Cincinnati–I hope they have it in store because I haven’t bought things on line yet.
    And that pizza–never seen one so colorful.
