San Francisco & Napa Valley

A couple of weeks ago, I made a trip out to San Francisco and Napa Valley with my sorority sisters for our dear friend's wedding. I haven't been with ALL of these girls {and Paul!} since our 2009 Homecoming, so this was such a special trip for me. Being 1000+ miles away from my best friends/sisters has not been easy. Actually, it's been incredibly hard. Thankfully, I've made the most wonderful friends here in Indianapolis and I don't know where I would be without them too. I know I'm one lucky girl, but I still miss my Arizona girlfriends every day. 

This trip flew by. We went to an all girls dinner in the city. Struggled to walk the hills in heels {props to you SF gals wearing heels every day - you're crazy}. Jenn and I sniffed out the nearest Zara. Got called mean names by a bum. Went wine tasting at V. Sattui Winery. Bought out V. Sattui Winery. Took Calistoga by surprise according to all the looks we received. Had my palm read by the iPhone. Got ready all together {which I have missed SOO much!}. Paid over $20 for a martini {thanks Tanabs!}. Watched one of our best friends tie the knot. Danced to "Cyclone" with the bride. All while laughing like we're back at Dirtbags singing "Sweet Caroline" and closing out the patio! 

I can't wait to go back to SF and of course, see my besties again. Here's a little massive photo diary of my trip! :)
