Produce grows like nothing I've ever seen in Healdsburg. At the farmer's market, we purchaseed fragrant basil, beautiful butter lettuce and the best bacon ever. After shopping for groceries (we made gnocchi and marina from scratch!), we headed over for a quick bite at The SHED, which I have now declared to be my favorite store in the world. I could spend all day browsing spices, cheeses and cooking paraphernalia while people watching.
A few snaps taken on my block and around the corner - I adore all the trees, how quiet it is (despite being between Santa Monica Blvd. and Melrose!) and the abundance of street art
I quickly snapped a few photos of my lovely and beautiful friend Julie as the sun was almost completely faded from the sky. We were walking to EAK Ramen (beyond delicious, get the Zebra and thank me later) and I forced her to stand in front of stranger's doors on my charming street in West Hollywood.
A trip to Healdsburg is not complete without a visit to the town square. I dragged my dad along for an afternoon of coffee and shopping - similar to the torture he endured when I was younger (a typical weekend outing was 2-3 hours inside a Barnes & Noble followed by a rom com). Downtown is quaint, cozy, and incredibly walkable; the streets are lined with tasting rooms, amazing restaurants, and immaculately laid out shops. We spent most of our time browsing a couple of bookstores (goodbye, all my Christmas money), and my suitcase ended up about 10 pounds heavier on my return...
P.S. Stealing my subject titles from the Healdsburg Chamber of Commerce website is really working out for me, I think
