Silicon Valley Highlights

And now back to our regular programming…

Just a few weeks before the wedding, when I was still freaked out about things like hairstyles and cakes, Mike and I spent a week in Silicon Valley and San Mateo County. It was such a nice getaway with delicious food, interesting sites and tantalizing glimpses of the ocean.

I’ll be writing a handful of articles, including the time I was attacked by goats (of course), and the Italian restaurant I discovered which was better than Batali. For starters though, here are some of the photo highlights:

Healthy California breakfast at the Sofitel San Francisco Bay
Lavender “tree”
Magical gardens at historical Filoli House
Busy bees
Walking through the dunes near Costanoa Lodge
Fresh caprese salad (that I begged for) at It’s Italia in Half Moon Bay
The coastal highway- I want to drive the entire length one day
The almost TOO friendly goats!
Champagne and S’mores, my new favorite combo at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay
Some irresponsible person let me drive a golf cart
Heaven, even if you don’t care about golf (I don’t)
Thomas Fogarty Winery

Gorgeous dome at the San Mateo County History Museum
One of the best pasta dishes I’ve EVER had at Donato Enoteca

I visited all of these wonderful places as a guest of the San Mateo County and Silicon Valley tourism board. All pictures and opinions are my own.
