Home at last

After NY I came home for just a few days then off to seattle for a really great winemaker dinner at matt's in the market!! Thank you to all that came out!! and then off to california - where I got to spend some qailty time with the slanted door staff and was hosted to an epic dinner there -- then off to a very special girls weekend and a day with my younger brother was the final icing on the cake... then home to the farm. I have to say while the travel was super fun it's GREAT to be home. The farm is thriving and we are enjoying the amazing weather! 

a beautiful dinner at the girls weekend to celebrate my bff's birthday
