Hearts in San Francisco

I didn't leave my heart in San Francisco, but I did leave many amazing friends and memories. Fortunately, I've been back a few times since I moved away...and ironically, the two good friends I made in DC moved to San Francisco, so now there are even more people there to visit. I keep saying I'll make a list of all my favorite spots for them, but it's such a daunting task. When you've lived somewhere there's so much, it's hard to edit. And, I don't have any high quality photos because of course when I was there I didn't document my day-to-day! I'm getting much better at that now, but in the meantime I dug up some photos from my phone from recent trips to give you a taste of my old haunts. 

Where are your favorite spots in San Francisco? What should I include in my upcoming post?
