Driving along the gorgeous coast of California, I'll be making my way from Los Angeles to The City by the Bay today. At a time where being in flux is my new normal, somehow knowing I'll be resting my head to sleep in San Francisco tonight feels like coming home.
Though my address still says Chicago, and my schedule says I'll be traveling for the remainder of the year, my heart says I'm ready to make San Francisco my new home.

So until then, I'm going to savour my time there this week. I'm going soak up the crisp, gray city of enchantment, love, and dreams.

Oh, there is no city quite like San Francisco, loved living there for several years. The fog horn, the salty air, the great architecture, Crissy field...okay, don't get me started! Enjoy!

I love San Francisco! Happens to be my birthplace as well! I'll be praying for safe travels and an easy transition.

How lovely. Cities have a way of calling to us when they know we'll be making them home.
Onward bound, enjoy the journey.

My address still is Chicago as well but California has a way of capturing people I guess. L.A. is defiantly home for me. Hope you had fun while you were here!

San Francisco is wonderful. I love this city and can only imagine that feeling of 'coming home'.
For me, it's flying into Stockholm from Sydney.. when the crew 'welcomes the passengers to Sweden'.. I cry like a baby every time..!!
There's no place like home!
