Our California Weekend Getaway

We’ve just returned home from a long weekend getaway in California and I’m already dreaming of when we can go back. There’s never enough time to explore everything that California has to offer.

Adventures in Napa & Sonoma California

Have I mentioned how in love I am with California? Seriously… madly in love! What tops the cake, are the moments I get to head up north, to the wine country and spend some time hanging out with my family. They just moved into this great new home where the backyard looks out onto the vineyards. Yep, definitely jealous!  My uncle is quite the wine connoisseur and foodie aficionado.  He’s always been
