Parlez-Vous Francais...Bienvenue a la Maison

This last week I wrapped up my ongoing campaign to celebrate my birthday for 2 months!!!  I think this years campaign was successful, LOL.  Each year my high school bestie and I spend a weekend together to celebrate.  My birthday is in October and hers is in November.  This year I flew down to her neck of the woods.  Thank goodness the flight was under 2 hours...cause flying is not fun anymore...totally packed!


Since I was traveling to Colleen neighborhood she found us a hotel near Union Square San Francisco...OMG, did she knock it out of the park!  The Cornell Hotel de France was straight out France...I swear I stayed in this hotel while traveling with Robin and Lori in France!!!  This place was charming with a capital "C"!!!  And, it had a wonderful restaurant where we had a 4 course dinner. 


Although Colleen is not a quilter she made sure I had time in a fabric store...now that is true friendship, LOL


...of course, we also had to enjoy all that San Francisco 
had to offer on a glorious day.


walking around Chinatown reminded so much of when I was a kid and my parents used to bring 
my sister and I there.


On our last full day in the city 
we decided to treat ourselves 
to High Tea at the Palace Hotel...the Palace is beautiful!


Enjoying our tea and a variety of petite sandwiches.


...followed by several choices of desserts, cookies and scones...yum!


I made a little slide show of the Cornell Hotel de France in case you ever want to make a trip to San Francisco and need a place to stay.  Monday I will have a quilting slide show :)  Have a wonderful weekend!  I continue to be grateful each day...today, I am grateful for friendships.
