A Week in Wine Country

Print Post

Last week in Napa was amazing!  I didn’t realize how much I needed a vacation until I got back and found myself refreshed and energized in a way I haven’t been in a few months.  Sometimes you just need that.  Here are some highlights from our eating, drinking and relaxing.  I’ll be sharing some more details on some of the places we visited in California in coming posts.

9 miles of hiking followed by a bottle of champagne = perfection (don’t worry, we hydrated too)

Ad Hoc make-your-own sundae, yes!

What do you do when you have nothing to do? Drink champagne with a view

Bucket of donuts, enough said.

While in Napa, we stayed at the Old World Inn. This was our second visit so they welcomed us with a bottle of champagne! The people there are very nice and we had a great time on our trip, but I have to say, the inn wasn’t quite as wonderful as it was on our first visit three years ago.

    I am SO jealous that you went to Bi-Rite without me!! But…I just bought their cookbook so you and I are having an ice cream party in my apartment when I get back from vacation. K? Good. :P

    Also…looks like you had an AWESOME time! Makes me SO happy.
