Sunshine in December.


I’m such a beanie and sunglasses type girl, that when it’s sunny in December I’m more than delighted to be able to wear both.  When we were in Napa the other weekend, the sun made an appearance but it was still quite chilly for California :).




I love any type of weather as long as I’m dressed for it, so bring on winter!

Biking in Napa.


 Rob and I spent last weekend in Napa hanging out after I won a free night’s stay at the Carneros Inn.  I know!  I used to be one of those people that said “I never win anything” until I won this great stay :).  The resort is beautiful and posh so if you’re looking for a fancy weekend away in Napa, this is definitely the spot.  We took the property bikes out for the day when we got there and spent some time pedaling around the back roads.  It was beautiful and it felt great to be cruising around the orange and red vineyards.

Making sure we were following the back roads map 🙂

Snapping pics along the way.



Wine Country.

This past weekend, my family, Rob, and I headed to wine country for the day since my mom had won a winery tour with the owner himself at Rombauer winery.  It was very interesting to see exactly what happens from vine to wine.

That’s a wholeeeee lot of wine.

Show me the money wine!



The wine caves were so cool!

A little tasting.


It was a beautiful day!


I don’t know much about wine but visiting a winery is all about the experience.  Being in beautiful wine country is very relaxing and the drive through Napa alone is worth the visit.

Napa Valley Weekend

This weekend Nick took me to Napa for a very relaxing getaway! We ate a ton of great food, drank delicious wines, and took in the sun- it was the perfect weekend!

We are so lucky to have such a gorgeous backyard! Just another reason I love living in Northern California! If you are ever in the area, you have to do a Napa daytrip!
