Funny thing — nearly a year to the day I found myself once again at San Francisco’s airport. In July 2011, I was there because Abby and I were meeting Kristin and heading out for a girlie weekend in Napa; in July 2012, I was there because I was taking a flight across the Pacific and heading to my new home and life as an expat in Thailand.
During our trip, we were fortunate enough to stay at my friend’s hotel, the charming Chardonnay Lodge.
This shot is from the garden in front of our hotel. The owner, Karin Patel, not only has gorgeous roses in bloom, but even a little vineyard with a table and chairs. So quaint and charming!
