I am so glad that my doctor approved a (final) trip out-of-state to the Bay Area. I am now 24 weeks along and January has been a very hectic month, so this trip was exactly what I needed. The Bay Area is my home away from home...not only is it green and beautiful with mild temperatures, some of my closest buds live there. :-) It was a low-key weekend and I really enjoyed my time there from hanging out with Jena and her 3 kiddos in Mountain View, to exploring Menlo Park and all of its cute cafe's with Lindsay, and then getting a glimpse of Stefanie's life in Oakland. Plus, nothing beats a drive at dusk along the Bay Bridge with views of downtown San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge.
