This time last Friday I was in San Francisco with my Girl Scout Troop.
We went to the City by the Bay to trek across the Golden Gate with 5,000 other Scouts in a symbolic “bridging” ceremony. Awesome, huh?
Aside from all the fun we had, we stayed in a great hotel that I thought you might like to know about.
The Argonaut ~ a boutique hotel perfectly located near all the attractions someone visiting San Fran with kids would want to see… and which has well appointed rooms, a spa (not that I did any spa’ing)…
AND which serves complimentary wine in the lobby from 5-6 to tired mommies & others, while entertaining the kids with a hotel scavenger hunt. If there was a hotelier badge I would bestow it upon the Argonaut.
It is a modern cafe with communal tables. We had two such tables one for the girls & one for the moms. Gourmet brick oven pizza, pasta & salads amongst a decidedly hip crowd of young families, daters and those popping in after work.
This area of Chestnut is chock full of wonderful shops, restaurants & coffee bars. I’ve been there a few times over the course of many years & it never disappoints. Back in the late 80’s I bought a black leather jacket with substantial shoulder pads on this same stretch. How I loved that jacket!
Seems like you are as excited about my “white garden” as I am! I got so many wonderful suggestions for white blooms from readers, FB & G+ followers that I thought I would share the extended list.
- Annabelle Hydrangea
- Phlox Paniculata David
- Mock Orange
- Sweet Alyssum
The Pinterest Board of Interest for this week is DECO curated by Valerie Penty. Deco as in decoration not Art Deco. This board is so cohesive in vibe & look. Lots of white, dark wood, soft light, texture and comfortable furnishings.
This PIN always grabs me so when I saw it included here, I wanted to share it as the feature PIN. It kinda sums up the whole board. Follow for casual style done so very right.
Ever get a bit of a song stuck in your head? All week I have been mentally serenading myself with this snippet….”Guilty feet have got no rhythm”.
Can you name the song ….AND get it out of my head!
