On Christmas eve we went to Muir Woods. I haven't been there for a good 15 years so it was exciting to experience the enchanted looking forest again. The tall trees, wood grains on the floor, the smell, and the sound of water flowing under the bridges. The woods make me happy..I feel like I belong. That's what my last name means anyways. Literal translation - "wood wood" or forest. For those who can read kanji or chinese would understand :)

this picture looks so beautiful in a larger format..its my new desktop background :)

This picture looks so creepy, but so cool. The tree casted a nice grim shadow on his face...it also doesn't help that it was getting dark and cold. My favorite picture of him!

Next we headed back to a bit of warmth and walked around Chinatown. I love peach green tea with aloe. My all time favorite drink.

I was wearing a vintage Betsey Johnson Coat, one of my favorite coats in my closet!! Scarf from UO, leopard print skirt by Mirror/Dash for UO, random tee, Boots by Nine West, Olivia Harris bag.

It's hard to pack my entire closet when going on a trip, so I had to plan each outfit to see how many times I can wear the garment. This outfit was set for day or night. Later that night, I threw on a bcbg necklace, added red lipstick and make up and headed to a Christmas dinner. This was taken from the hotel, love the chair!

I must warn you, I didn't realize I packed a lot of leopard print items on this trip. It didn't hit me until my second outfit the following day. I guess I've been animal print crazy for awhile.
