Of course – here comes my e-fare shopping list and Santa Barbara for $111 RT is on it! But, here in SF – Spring has sprung – it’s so warm and clear- so breathtaking beautiful – that traveling is not an option. Instead Sonoma calls when the weather is like this. Eliana – my friend from Lima, Peru arrived today – and like a true diva – has hit Union Square with some real resolve. She had to pick up 6 bags at Nine West alone! The city is so clean after the rains and the buildings are so striking against the blue skies. Time to show off the city I love and live in! Any hints on favorite spots?
