Our first wedding anniversary fell on Labor Day and, although we were both busy with work, we decided to take the day off and go to our favorite place (and where it all began), San Francisco. We had no agenda except dinner at 6pm at a new restaurant in Hayes Valley called Monsieur Benjamin. We just drove up and decided to play tourist in the city we're so familiar with. We started with brunch at Outerlands, followed by the Botanical Gardens and then coffee and shopping for our Europe trip in Hayes Valley until it was time for dinner. It was the perfect low-key day and time much needed together.
