Napa, Napa, Napa

^Cheers to the freakin' weekend
^My family
^give me a sunny day + a smiling husband and I'm a happy girl
^Metallics & wools & wines
^While I mourn the loss of my youthful glow, my husband has started to age like a fine wine. It's complete b*llsh*t.
^What a snobby puppy
^Great capture of our sommelier
^Views heading home via my iPhone

It's pretty much the oldest freakin' news that Napa is pretty awesome. Nothing I can say about it or write about it does it any justice or offers even remotely new information into why this place rocks. You know it does. I know it does. Let's leave it at that. Especially because all my images above are just snaps from my iPhone so I don't have any special beauty to share. But I'm not gonna lie, living 30 minutes from these palatial wineries is something that doesn't get old. Not only are the vineyards full of grandeur and the wine tasting experience a joy, but the travel there itself is satiating. You begin with illustrious views of the bay as you glide over Gigi and as the SF skyline grows smaller and smaller in the rear view mirror, it is replaced with rich green trees, fields as far as the eye can see and fruit stands about every ten feet. Even someone who is highly partial to urban living (me!) finds themselves grasping at straws trying to remember why I love living in such a clustered environment so much. This, this open living, is the way to go. Add my dog and my husband into that scenario and you can color me a happy girl. 

Less Mondays. More Napa.

There is so much goodness in the post! I'm so jealous that y'all live so close to Napa because I'm pretty sure that I'd be there every weekend if I lived that close! I also love that you take Chandler with you because he seriously looks so happy to be with y'all and enjoying the Napa beauty himself!

What is that ring, I love it!

You guys still look young and glowing. The wine makes it even better!!!
Nice post, nice pics. Though I wonder if you'd survive in NYC. 30 Minutes of driving in the city will probably get you 3 blocks down from where you started. And the closest to a winery in NYC is most likely a liquor store.
Not sure why people would ever want to move from SF to NYC.

Sure looks like a grand time indeed, and we agree, more of that and less Mondays.
