Lunch in Noe Valley

Noe Valley

Today I went to Noe Valley to have lunch with my friend Lexi.

On my way I wondered what had happened to the sun and somewhat disappointed I zipped up my jacket while staring at the overcast sky.

Seeing Lexi chased the grey away and I was so happy to just hang out with a friend and see a familiar face. Both me and Lexi met while we lived in Portland and we both moved to San Francisco earlier this year.

During lunch we reminisced Portland and exchanged stories about how it feels to just pack up and leave your friends and family behind to start from scratch in a new city. Although it is fun and very adventurous to embark on new journeys, at times it can also be hard especially when it comes to making new close friends.

When it was time to say our goodbyes, I gave Lexi some Poppies of Endearment:

Poppies for Lexi

Create things to look forward to. It will keep you going!

Bye sweet Lexi, hopefully one day we will see each other in New York City.

As I left Noe Valley behind me and hiked up the hill, I could see the San Franisco fog come rolling in...

Mist rolling in over Noe Valley

Just before it started to drizzle ever so slightly (or was it the tiniest of fog particles that I felt on my skin?) I found a lovely Jade plant and decided to adorn it with poppies:

Always aspire higher. Reach for your fullest potential.

And once I stood on the highest point on the hill I paused for a moment. Only 2 more days to go and I will be leaving for New York City.
