Another New “Home Sweet Home”

25 Nov

I am still stuffed from a wonderful turkey day thanks to my brother and sister-in-law, her lovely parents, and the best neice and nephews a girl could ask for. Thanksgiving is always a great time to pause and reflect on the things you are most thankful for, and I love scrolling through various social media feeds and seeing all that everyone is blessed to have. One of the things I’m most thankful for this season is the ability to travel in such a unique way.  We have been able to explore so many great locations, and our newest one is no exception.

I absolutely love our new “home.” Our newest adventure has brought us to the South Bay of San Francisco where we will spend the next 3 months in lovely Sunnyvale, CA. I instantly fell in love from the moment we drove into our new neighborhood. The tree lined streets, bright fall colors, and views of the Santa Cruz mountains from every direction are just a few of the things that had me hooked.

The weather has been perfect. Highs in the 70s, lows in the 40s, and blue skies for the most part.  We live less than a block from the Cal train station which takes us into San Francisco.  There are tons of restaurants, wineries, and outdoor activities all at our convenience.  Not to mention things to do in San Francisco alone.

Historic Murphy Avenue is just a short walk away and makes up a block of quaint shops, delicious restaurants, and every Saturday is home to one of the best farmer’s markets I’ve ever been to.

They have tons of fresh organic produce, fresh flowers, and even fresh fish. (We were especially excited to find Hawaiian Ono, Ahi tuna, and Pokē!)  There are also a lot of little food booths and live music, including a steel drummer!

I can easily see this becoming a weekly ritual.

I love exploring a new community, and it is quickly becoming apparent that it will be easy to call this place home (at least for 3 months:)).
