Well, Michelle and I just thought we were going home yesterday. Due to fog, our flight out of San Francisco was delayed, causing us to miss our connecting flight in Phoenix. But we made the best of it. Besides, I always wanted to see the inside of the Phoenix Hilton. Charming kokopelli decor. :-) Nice to know I can finally check that off my bucket list.

Looking forward to getting home and giving my kids a squeeze.

We had an amazing girls weekend in Napa! With flights not leaving until late afternoon, we had plenty of time to stop by Domaine Carneros on the way out of town for a flight of sparkling wine. What a fantastic end to a perfect weekend. Cheers!

I wonder how the owner of The Terraces knew that Shelley doesn't like to taste wine out of small glasses.

Off the beaten path

We have thoroughly enjoyed our jeep tour today. All of the wineries we visited today in Napa have been both unique and off the beaten path. And getting the opportunity to meet and visit with the winery owners, their families, and their dogs, was incredible. Such a treat!



My Wine Personality:
For the most part I’m a chardonnay, as I consider myself to exhibit a somewhat sunny and mellow disposition (most of the time), but because I find a tremendous amount of joy out of showering my two kids with hugs and kisses, I also possess the subtle sweetness often found in a riesling. But don’t be fooled. I love a great outdoor adventure and am willing to try anything once. This occasional display of boldness is thought to match that of a cabernet, whereas my appreciation for nature suggests that I have an earthy component to my personality—very characteristic of a merlot.
