When my parents said they were heading to California for a wedding, my sister and I didn’t really hesitate in asking to tag along. I have always dreamed of moving here. I’ve even been looking at home in the nearby community of River Island. There is something about the River Islands lifestyle that really appealed to me and its a commutable distance from the wonderful San Francisco. We were gone for a very magical ten days, and got to see San Francisco, Palo Alto, Napa, and Walnut Creek. I thought for a bit about if I wanted to share all the fun things we did (and, let’s be real, delicious things we ate) with you, as Her Philly is a Philadelphia-based blog, but as a very wise friend told me: “people can’t really expect that you never leave the city, right?” And that’s true (unless you’re referring to the suburbs, of course), so, here we are. If you’re only here for the Philly goods: I promise there will be more of that very soon!
