I had a special guest in town this past weekend: my good friend Ula who flew down from Portland to hang out. This girl is great; I'm happy to call her a friend a full 14 years (!) after meeting in Mrs. Webb's advanced English class. I love meeting new people but there's just something so satisfying about friendships that have endured since those silly, strange, and wonderful days of high school. We spent 3 days adventuring, eating and drinking our way around the Bay Area. When we weren't exploring, we cooked, drank boozy hot chocolate and kind of an amazing amount of wine, and wondered where the hours went.
And, despite being a cold, gloomy and rainy weekend, Northern California somehow managed to be photogenic anyway.
