Wine Country Wanderings…

Last weekend, for the first time since we’ve had kids, my sister and I went on a DOUBLE DATE with our husbands. Why have we not done this before?!?! We had such a fantastic time–the weather was perfect, the wine was flowing, Napa was gorgeous, I got to play with my camera, and the four of us had a decadent, all-adult day. (And as far as we know, the kids were having an equally enjoyable adult-free day, as we let the cousins play together at home!)

Great conversation, amazing food (dinner at The Market in St. Helena), and surprise treats from my sister waiting in the back seat like Grandma used to do for us… We’ve decided this needs to be at least an annual thing!

    Gorgeous pics! Given how close I live it’s a shame how infrequently I get to the wine country! You’re inspiring me to plan a trip!ReplyCancel

    Sounds absolutely wonderful Jessica! So where is the picture of you and your sister LOL! I love the fountain picture! It reminds of the vineyard in Napa where we stopped a few years ago, I entertained my nephew at fountain while his parents were inside!ReplyCancel
