New Year's Day

On New Year's Day, we decided to go out for a quick brunch with Leslie and the boys before we left the city.  We enjoyed a delicious meal at Pier 23 - my breakfast sandwich tasted like heaven... ...and I was super excited when Brent agreed to split a root beer float with me.  He rarely ever agrees to dessert, so I jump on the opportunity when it arises.

After we said our goodbyes we drove across the bridge, headed to the Marin Headlands to take in the view of the Bridge and the city in the distance.

The drive up there was initially very frustrating... I have a very short fuse when I'm behind the wheel and this curvy road up the hillside was packed with annoying touristy-type minivans moving at a snail's pace.  I was ready to pull into the first available spot I saw, but nooooooooo.... Brent wanted to go all the way to the top.  I believe he even used the term "tippy-top", just to send my blood pressure through the roof.  But boy I'll tell you, I need to learn to be more patient and just go along for the ride because Brent was right... it was so worth driving all the way up to the "tippy-top".  The view was breathtaking.  We even braved the freezing cold 20 mph winds and climbed the rest of the way on foot to the top of the hill to take a million pictures.

It was a wonderful way to spend the first day of the new year...  I can't wait to see what else 2013 has in store!
