lazy sunday

Dave and I have been making a point to get out as often as possible and enjoy this beautiful California weather. It is still such a novelty for us to actually want to leave the house during the month of January, let alone walk around without a winter coat(!). If we were still living in Chicago, we would be in full hibernation mode right now. Because yes, it reached a jaw-dropping -4 degrees in Chicago yesterday. That is the kind of cold where your lungs ache, your snot freezes (sorry, but it's true), your eyeballs burn, and three layers of thermal underwear is still not enough. No, you don't go out in that unless it involves a paycheck.  

Anyway, last weekend, on a particularly gorgeous San Francisco Sunday, we found ourselves exploring the Lower Haight. First we fortuitously stumbled into Maven for a fan.tas.tic brunch, then to Le Cafe du Soliel for (more) coffee. On the walk home, I sincerely thought my heart was going to explode from happiness... or perhaps it was all that caffeine :)
