it’s the season!

Ahhhh! I can’t believe I haven’t blogged in 2 months! I feel very out of touch with the blogosphere! I honestly haven’t had time to think about it, I took a trip to out to Arizona and  San Fran in April, and May has been a wild blur of wedding chaos. I have a few friends getting married this year, and a few projects for others on the table! Ah! I also joined a kickball team and will soon be starting tennis camp for the little ones! Going to be a great summer (if I survive kickball!) Just wanted to share a few vacation pics! More work to come soon!

If you haven’t been to Arizona in the spring, I insist you do it! It’s usually not too hot, and EVERYTHING is in bloom! I think I fall more in love with the desert every time I go out there! There were an awful lot of cacti in bloom in April, and I just couldn’t take my eyes of these amazing yellow flowers on the purple prickly pears. Sigh.

I’ve been to San Francisco a few times, my friends live out there now (sigh) so I took a little trip to see them again, and seriously consider moving there every time I visit. It’s. Just. So. Cool. There are so many fun things to do, I don’t think I’d ever get sick of it. I know I wouldn’t get sick of 60’s in January, thats for sure! I flew in and right away we went to the Fillmore. I had been dying to go there, my inner hippie had to see the magical place, and luckily, we got to see M. Ward perform! He only played for a short time, but he was great! LOVED seeing the photos of Janis Joplin and Jerry Garcia, and all the greats that have performed there, too cool! (Jess cooperated for me as I geeked out on all that!)
Next we headed up to Sonoma. Oh. My. God. It’s crazy pretty there! We had a rainy cold day, but it was still perfect. Soooo many vineyards. I am no wine expert, but everything we had was delish! I didn’t retain most of the things I learned, after 5 wineries we were ‘forgetful’ but if you’re ever out there, you must take Terrific Tours (ask for Dan) because it was so nice. I loved the people there, they are truly out there because they enjoy every minute of it! That makes for such a great experience! We were so impressed, we tried to figure out how exactly, we could run our own vineyard. I’ll let you know when we figure it out.

Here we are at the Korbel Cellars, which was also a really beautiful place. They  have this fantastic deli inside, and if you’re in Sonoma, you have got to go! I don’t know if it was all the wine I had, but I wanted to eat everything! We stayed in Healdsburg, only a few minutes outside of Sonoma, but I totally recommend it! The tour picked us up and dropped us off, and couldn’t have been more convenient. The downtown area was very cute, lots of shops and restaurants (try SCOPA, soooooo good) and just a very artsy little place. We didn’t want to leave. It was a great trip! My last pic is with a (badass) Instagram filter of the last vineyard we went to, Dry Creek Cellars. It was a fantastic couple of days, and I can’t wait to head back to Sonoma!

BIG SUR-prise, California is beautiful

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to visit some of my closest friends that moved out to the west coast. While I hate, hate, hate the distance between us, I love, love, love that I have a new place to visit! Helllllooooo golden state! California, we meet again! We visited Big Sur, Monterey, and Santa Cruz- each as beautiful as the next!

and my very favorite, the accident-turned-great shot, shot…
