Snippets of Life

snippet of life: food, family and wine

What a busy weekend! We got back late last night after being on the road for 12 hours! A few of those hours were for selfish reasons as we had to make pit stops at a favorite winery and restaurant. The other hours spent in the car were for lovely California traffic. A trip from Sonoma to Los Angeles should only take about 7 hours… We were exhausted and by the time we got home we threw our bags down, in our 86 degree apartment, and crashed into bed. Romeo was AMAZING on the trip! I was a proud mommy ; ) We had such a fabulous mini-vacation and my dad, sister Jessie and brother Dustin got to meet Romeo for the first time! He loved meeting his Grandpa, Aunt and Uncle! On Friday we had a giant, and I’m talking like 30 glasses on the table, tasting at Mumm where my brother works. Then we ate at Farmstead in Napa, which is my kind of restaurant! The next day we shared a bottle of red with my cousins and adorable nephew at Cline. We also made mojitos while my cousin did my hair in her kitchen. Yes we brought back the old school traditions of highlighting in the kitchen. I know we’ve all done it at some point in our lives. High school? Ahhhh the memories. Now I have another busy week ahead! Bring on the laundry, emails and trying to find a place to store the wine we brought back. We have a mini Bevmo in the living room right now!
