This weekend was actually quite busy for me, but in between running here and there, I made sure to make room for delicious food and fun activities. First stop was for food and coffee! My boyfriend's favorite coffee place in the city is Linea Caffe. He goes there so often they know him by name and the staff is always super nice! The café is quite small with a few tables for outdoor seating. One of the cool things about Linea, besides their award-winning coffee, is that the shop teamed up with this waffle making company called Lt. Waffle. Not only can you grab your favorite caffeinated beverage, but you can also grab a gourmet brussels style waffle while you're there! We've never had time to stop for brunch before so I was excited to finally get the chance. I went for the Fried Egg, Bacon & Marmalade butter waffle while my boyfriend opted for the Yogurt, Fresh peaches and Spearmint waffle. We swapped bites and they were both equally delicious. This place makes a darn good waffle!
After brunch, we stopped by Blu Dot, a cute modern furniture shop, to finally order the household item that I have been wanting for months, a desk! I spend most, almost all, of my nights at my boyfriend's apartment. He has a two bedroom apartment to himself, while I live in a house with four other roommates so it makes sense in terms of the need for privacy and more personal space. I generally don't mind, except for certain days when I fall into a sad funk feeling like a nomad, wandering between homes. My apartment doesn't feel like my apartment because I'm never there and his place doesn't feel like mine because I don't exactly have a space in it that is all my own. My boyfriend came up with the idea of getting me my own desk for the home office. I generally work at his house in the living room, on the couch, which isn't exactly conducive to productivity. My papers end up strewn all over, the television always becomes an easy distraction and the couch is just too comfy to work for too long. Finally, I'll have a space to call my own. (squeal!!!) I've already picked out a couple must have pieces from Design Darling to decorate my new desk so stay tuned for more pics!
Delicious fancy breakfast toast at The Mill. Josey Baker Bread is incredibly delicious!

As the sun started to peak out from behind the clouds, we decided to take a little venture to Billy Goat Hill, a cute spot above Noe Valley that has amazing views of the city and a fun rope swing to pass the time! If you're in San Francisco, make sure to go check it out!
