Hi! And welcome to From Foothills to Fog! I am so glad you stopped by.

My name is Theresa. In January 2012 I moved from a small town in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains to San Francisco. I've been wanting to join the blog world for years now, and decided it was finally time to stop talking about it, and actually do it. The blogging community is already a huge part of my life. My favorite part of each day is drinking my morning coffee, and checking in with my blog friends (yes, I consider you my friends). You can ask anyone, I am always talking about the numerous blogs I follow and sharing your stories as if I were talking about an old friend. Besides connecting with all of you, this will be a good way for me to keep in touch with my family, and let them know what I'm up to in the City by the Bay.

I'm 29 years old, and already loving living in San Francisco. I am lucky enough to have some of my best friends right here in the city with me, so even though I am away from my family, I always have them! I love to travel and see new places, near or far. The best part about living here is the close proximity to all that California has to offer. You can start the day skiing in Tahoe, and watch the sun setting beyond the Golden Gate, all in the same day.  I love taking weekend trips to wine country, brunch dates in the city, and heading home for the weekend to be with family and escape the fog. I try to always appreciate how lucky I am to live in this beautiful place, and take advantage of all that it has to offer.

The title "From Foothills to Fog" pretty much sums up what this blog is about, my life from the Foothills to the Fog in San Francisco, and everywhere in between. This will be a place to document my life as I transition from a small town, to the big city. I hope to bring you along as I explore the city and discover all that it has to offer. I share recipes, style & outfit inspiration, home decor ideas, DIY projects, and stories from my travels. My boyfriend, Andrew and I are always on the go, so there is no shortage of blog material! Currently, I post on Monday, Wednesday & Friday :)

Thank you so much for stopping by, I truly appreciate it! I'd love to hear from you, and if you have any questions, please email me at: or leave a comment here.


  1. Hey girl!
    I am so glad you found me so I could find you!
    I am super jealous that you live in San Fran. I miss living there everyday. Maybe I will live vicariously through you ;)
    Can't wait to chat again soon!

    1. Loving SF! I've been here a year now, it really is the greatest city! I can't wait until your "Our Home" section is up, I can already tell from your craft room that you'll have some great decorating tips :)

  2. Haha, I looooove talking about blogs!!! Even though I've had mine for a while, I'm finally starting to step out a bit and reach out to others... not as scared anymore!

    Anyway, I love this description! Ah, I'm so excited for you and your time in the big city! Even though I grew up close to SF, I still have yet to live in a big city! It'll be fun to discover SF through your eyes! :) *bookmarking*
