Here are a few photo's from my going dinner in San Francisco at Sushi Hana. It was such a good last goodbye and I already miss these people so much. I'm not going to get all sentimental on here and go into in-depth stories. Instead, I'll keep the words short and let the pictures do the talking.
My friend Sean surprised me by dressing up as me in drag. I think it's safe to say he had it down to the t! They even snuck into my apartment while I was out and grabbed one of my signature hats. It was the best going away present anyone could ask for.
The weather has been exceptionally nice here since my arrival. Today's heat wave has left me with droopy eyes and a dysfunctional brain (I blame yesterday's heat too for my current condition). But I can't complain when I just came from a city that had an average temperature of 60 degrees and high winds. I've been sure to take advantage of this beautiful weather with strolls around the city, picnics on Bainbridge Island and laying out on my parent's deck while feeling completely relaxed for the first time in a long time. I know at some point this short-lived vacation will have to end soon and any second now reality will be waking me up with a nice slap in the face. But until then I'll be relishing in every last enjoyable moment.
Tuesday: I went out for drinks and appetizers with two of my closest friends at 611 Supreme, this adorable French creperie/bistro lounge and restaurant. The atmosphere inside was very relaxed and intimate. They even had live jazz playing and very yummy food! I want to go back for brunch some time and much on crepes.
Wednesday: Yesterday was my close friend, Stacie's, birthday! The plan for the day was a ferry ride out to Bainbridge Island for a picnic. We started the morning off with a trip to Pike Place Market to pick up some fruit, cheese and a much needed cup of coffee and pastry.
We feasted on home-made potato salad, fruit salad, cheese which was a cypress grove truffle de tremor and rollingstone anise chevre with lavender blossoms and anise seeds
I baked home-made chocolate chip and hello-kitty sugar cookies
Stacie made yummy homemade cupcakes and frosting!
main course called for honey marinated chicken kabobs with peppers and onions and some corn on the cob
finished the day with a round of apples to apples
Today: The lovely view I woke up to this morning
