A San Francisco Staycation

Burn out is real. Between juggling summer travel, the kids' camp schedule and my personal work load, I, the self-proclaimed queen of multi-tasking, have been feeling stretched too thin. This is why I'm so grateful for my people like my husband, one of the few influences in my life who is able to rationally motivate me to take a break for myself, something I rarely make time to do. While the kids were under the care of their awesome grandparents, I got to play hookie in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago, doing all the things that I love to do like a visit to my favorite museum, drinks at my favorite bar and an overnight stay at my favorite new hotel, The Proper. This precious time spent alone, especially for a working mom, can be such a revitalizing reset but safety can also be a concern, especially when I'm getting from place to place in the evening by myself. Thanks to Uber's new safety features, I'm able to designate up to five family members and friends as my Trusted Contacts so that I can share all the details of my trips with them. I used this feature for the first time last week, where I was able to easily add Abe, my husband, as my first Trusted Contact while on my way to meet him after work for dinner. I felt safer and more at ease, especially in the evening, knowing that he could track my trip on a map from start to finish and know exactly when I was scheduled to arrive to meet him. Using the new feature was seamless and it was just such a nice and worry-free way to end the most perfect day in San Francisco.

    Andrea, all of these shots are gorgeous! Sorry, not to be annoying, but any chance you could caption where they are–or just tell? Thanks, many times over! If you just say where, I can definitely match the place to the pictures myself, with a little research. Dying to know though!

      The first couple of photos are taken at the Proper Hotel, in the lobby and their restaurant/bar Villon. The museum is the Asian Art Museum.

      If you go to the Proper Hotel, do check out the rooftop bar called Charmaine’s!
