A Wildflower Cure

Today we went to San Bruno Mountain for a hike. We used to go hiking often, before Lois was born, but we haven't been once since she was born, until today. This morning I wasn't sure I would make it, though. I was little hungover. It was horrible!

Last night we went to Emmy's and had a delicious dinner, but I accidentally drank too much. I was craving a margarita, so I had one, and I think there was about a cup of tequila in that super sized margarita. Then I wanted a glass of wine with my dinner, so I had one. Big mistake. Needless to say it was a struggle to go on our previously planned hike, but it did me good.

San Francisco is an amazing city. It has so much to offer, and views like this are easy to come by. And if the view isn't enough itself, the smell--holy smokes, this place smells amazing! I know I've mentioned it before, and I'm not sure if people who are from here, or have lived here a long time notice it, but just outside the city--anywhere just outside the city--the smell is incredible. It smells like eucalyptus and sage. I wish I could bottle the smell and post it on my blog. It would knock your socks off! Here are some pictures from my hangover cure.















We were all worn out after our hike. I did manage to get a few 8 month birthday pictures, though. I'll post those tomorrow.

Wildflowers are my favorite,that's why I named my store after them! I can totally relate to the drinking thing.If I have more than one glass of wine, I can hardly stand up. Thanks for posting the beautiful pics! Have a great weekend!

I remember visiting Ojai and smelling a smell similar to what you are talking about and I was in heaven! This looks like a beautiful day.

wow, You've got me in the mood for a beautiful hike; we lived in NE Georgia until this past December, and the area was beautiful. I miss it so much compared to this suburbia we've found ourselves in... I'm pretty sure your mom's in Atlanta- have you made your way north on any visits?

Yeah, I do that "accidentally drank too much" thing from time to time. But since it's an accident, it's unavoidable, right?????? Lois looks so contented fast asleep in that last photo. Had some great scores at Alemany today!

Hi Michelle, yes, I've been to North GA a few times and it's very pretty. I lived in Atlanta from the time I was 11 years old - 30 years old. I didn't get up to N. GA often, but have gone a few times. I love the drive north to Asheville. I love Asheville too.
