Happy belated Valentine’s and President’s Day!

I hope everyone had a great weekend filled with love and surrounded by friends and family. I was lucky enough to have abundant sunshine and warm temperatures thrown in.

On Sunday I ran a half marathon in San Francisco with a girlfriend, through Golden Gate Park. The course featured waterfalls, ponds, gardens, museums, a windmill, and the ocean!

I relaxed post race with some homemade bath salts and this tasty dessert.
