These past few weeks have been a whirlwind—getting my seniors prepared for end-of-year events, lacrosse for youngest daughter, and a much-needed visit with my oldest child in sunny California. This week I will walk down memory lane and reminisce about a trip that came and went much too quickly.
I had a major work event last Monday, and like the spastic creature I tend to be, I planned to leave for CA early the following morning. I arrived around 11:00 AM West Coast time, and we hit the ground running: lunch, local sight-seeing, a winery, dinner (delicious and prepared by Cassie), and bedtime.
On Wednesday, we drove up to Napa, a short distance from my daughter's apartment in Alameda. I had never been to Napa, so I didn't really know what I'd been missing. But now I do know, and I intend to go back to this bucolic place sooner rather than later. OH, it was lovely! And the sun (which we haven't seen in weeks and weeks here) was shining. We had a picnic lunch, did some shopping, and then devoured an amazing dinner in town that evening. Our cottage was sweet, and there was even a rooster wandering around. He was hilarious, in fact.
Here's to a great week!
