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.

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.

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!
