A Picnic in January

Winter in California is awesome for the most part. No snow, no icy car windows, and no real use for a heater. While I do love getting bundled up in my sweaters and boots I don’t miss those Utah winters one bit. Last week Ashley, Hazel, and I decided to head out to Lake Merritt for a pizza picnic. We grabbed some pizza from Boots and Shoe, definitely one of my favorite pizza places in the area, and snagged a nice little spot by the lake. As much as I love San Francisco I think that Oakland is rather special. I love the houses, the hills and the diversity in the area (of course all of which can be found in San Francisco as well). Anyways, it was a beautiful day in January and honestly the perfect day for a picnic. We enjoyed our pizza, taking some photos, and a jaunt around the lake. These two girls have become some of my best friends in the Bay Area. They are beautiful and nice and all around good company. I look forward to many more picnics with these two.
