last week i flew to san francsico to meet 3 of my good friends: jesse, james, and denise. we rented a car and drove down highway 1, making a bunch of fun stops along the way…
finding an airbnb at the last minute proved to be pretty difficult and expensive, especially because we were only staying one night. we decided to stay in this quirky hotel called the phoenix. it was sort of strange, but also sort of awesome. we were swimming in our clothes and staying up late chatting.
we had to make a stop at one of my best friends, victoria’s house. we all shared a glass of wine and planned our trip.
that night we ate THE most delicious meal at nopa. everything we ordered was incredible but i loved the butter beans and the burger. definitely order a bunch of dishes to share!

i got back from my trip last week and have been gathering the photos to share because i TRULY loved the south of france and highly recommend you go there! i went with 6 other friends and 4 little kiddos. we used raileurope to take the train from paris to avignon (takes about 3 hours) and then rented a car and drove an hour to gordes. i had never been to the south of france, so it was a wonderful new experience.

while in paris out with some friends, i met katie, a photographer from australia who lives in paris. we really hit it off and she was kind enough to take me around to see a few spots i’d never seen a couple of days later…
we met and had mint tea and pastries at the café de la mosquée de paris, which is a beautiful north african cafe. mosaic tiles, birds fluttering around in the trees…a cute little spot for sure.
we walked through the jardin des plantes to see the roses and then ended up on the most colorful street i’ve seen in paris. each house with it’s own unique pastel color & doorstep decor. it was a happy day.
wishing you a happy weekend! i have my social media workshop tomorrow and then a backyard BBQ with friends. i’ve been on a sort-of-detox since my trip (no alcohol, gluten, sugar or dairy) which is pretty difficult but i’m feeling a lot better. jetlag, dehydration, and two weeks of indulgence can really catch up with ya. maybe i’ll splurge and have a margarita at the BBQ, we’ll see. have a good one! -bri

i’m finally home in my own bed. that’s always a good feeling after a trip. this trip was different than most, there was zero work involved. i gave myself two weeks to take in new sights, relax with good friends, and recharge my creativity. i’m excited to do a few posts on what i saw in france…i was blown away by the south. the relaxing energy, the never ending green, the vines crawling up all of the villas, the wine…ohhhh the wine. it was magic.
i’ll be catching up with work for a few days i’m sure (after two weeks of very slow, almost dial-up internet speeds) but i wanted to stop in and say hello! i missed this blog. i hope you’re having a great week so far! -bri
