My husband surprised me with a trip to San Francisco for my birthday! It is one of my favorite places to visit. Each time we go, I seem to fall in love with the city more and more! My first time there was for a few days for a second honeymoon that we took and I always am looking forward to going back to visit. We have been very lucky that with each visit, we have had beautiful weather. We arrived on Friday and and left Monday. We did lots of walking, enjoyed a full day of biking which included riding over the Golden Gate Bridge and riding into Sausalito. With traveling by foot and bike, I was able to stop at many stores that I have been wanting to go to including Paper Source, Union Street Papery and lots of cute cupcake shops! Here are a few pictures from the trip!
I love all of the fresh flower stands. Peonies are my favorite!
Visiting Susie Cakes for some cupcake eye candy. It is no wonder it is one of Martha Stewart's favorite cake shops! They had delicious red velvet cupcake samples to try.
On one side of the store you had the cupcakes and on the other side the cutest stationery.
Kara's Cupcakes had adorable Thanksgiving mini cupcakes greeting you as you entered. They had a great variety of traditional and filled cupcakes to choose from.
I loved Union Street Papery. They had a great selection of paper products including ribbons, papers and gifts!
How cute is this girly themed invite with the sparkly purse!
I could not wait to go to Paper Source. We don't have a store location close to us and I have been anxiously waiting to go to this store. I already loved all of their products from their website but seeing everything in person was like a little kid in a candy store. I could have stayed all day!
Aren't these inspiration boards beautiful??
Paper flowers! Gorgeous!
Our last cupcake stop was to American Cupcake. These cupcakes are amazing!
Some of the cutest cupcakes I have ever seen!
We had an amazing time and I can't wait to go back!
