Kim, Heather, Adrienne
It was the perfect day for a road trip and I was up bright and early to drive the 3+ hours from Chico to San Francisco to meet up with my blogger friends. My bags were packed to overflowing, despite my carefully crafted packing list here. The weather in San Francisco can change on a dime so it’s always good to be prepared. When meeting with these stylish ladies, Adrienne of The Rich Life on a Budget and Kim of Northern California Style, fashion options are always a good thing.
As I pulled up to the charming Hotel Monaco, a chic boutique hotel just two blocks from
Union Square, I was greeted with a smile and whisked into the lovely hotel.
At guest services, I was greeted by the gracious Daniel Bayless who made my check-in effortless.
In just minutes I was standing in my classically cozy room with a modern twist. I felt immediately at home. A quick text and I heard a knock at my door. My fabulous friends had arrived-hugs all around! I consider them friends though I have only met Adrienne once and this was my first time meeting Kim. I feel like I’ve known them forever and that is the best thing about blogging for me.

Later we dined at another iconic spot, Farallon, just blocks away from the hotel. Our dishes were swoon worthy and the service was impeccable.
Back at the hotel we decided it was bed time after a busy day so we each tucked into our rooms for a dreamy sleep.
It felt so luxurious to have a room and bathroom all to myself for a night.

Bloggers in action
(we understand each other’s need to ‘get that shot’, instagram, post, tweet it…all that blog stuff)
It was heartwarming to see the city sharing the love!
Finally, it was time to say goodbye and travel our separate ways. I know we all wish we lived closer. The beauty of blogging is that we won’t miss a beat for our next meetup since blogging keeps us so well in touch. The connections we form feel genuine and I am grateful for the relationships I have made with these wonderful women, and so many of you around the world.
*Our stay at the Hotel Monaco was generously sponsored as was our fabulous brunch at the Grand Cafe.
Cheers to more blogger getaways in all of our futures!
