Yesterday we spent the day strolling through beautiful Berkeley. My sister lives here and my cousin is a student at the University. I just love the quaintness of the town, and all of the small shops and boutiques. There are no big chain stores or Starbucks coffee shops, and the restaurants here are a healthy food lover’s dream. That coupled with the beautiful weather makes the pull to live here even stronger. Like when we vacationed in Hawaii a couple of years ago, we spent half the time trying to figure out schemes that would allow us to move there – but everything involved working jobs we were less than thrilled to do so we quashed that idea. It is just fun to dream about that life, and imagine what it could look like.
One thing people from the Bay Area know is the temps can vary drastically throughout the day. If the clouds come out, you will definitely need a sweater even in Spring. I love a great oversized wool sweater jacket in a California winter because it is really all you need for the coldest day, but it is light enough to wear as a layer under a winter coat in the midwest – and if you are me you wear it inside the house too because you are always cold.
Winding up our vacay today so we have packed a lot of things to do – follow along on snapchat @lovezahra.com to see what we are up to!
Have a great weekend! xx
