We returned yesterday from our trip to Napa Valley. My mom and I, along with our friend, Polly, had a great time drinking wonderful wine, sleeping in and working out to balance all the amazing food we ate. We also met up with our friends, Emily and Cody, who live in Sonoma. Cody is becoming a wine maker, and they showed us around his workplace while we were there. It made me a little jealous of the adventure they are on! A list of where we stayed and ate is at the bottom of this post!

    I was in the midst of fighting the first signs of a cold, surrounded by a chilly weather front that made everything require extra layers, when I saw your Instagram photos of being in California. Madison! This looks like such a perfect getaway — and in early November! good choice! I love that you and your mom like doing things like these together. She sounds awesome.

    I had one of the BEST meals of my life at Mustard’s Grill! I’m still talking about it 3 years later. I got their mushroom burger which was ouf of this world, Brandon got the pork chop (which was epic), and we finished with a chocolate caramel tart that I can literally still taste. You have to share what you ate! Looks like you had an incredible trip, isn’t the scenery unreal? xoxo c

      I had the grilled sweet potatoes, black beans with sour cream, and the pumpkin soup that was on special. And we split some amazing chocolate truffle cake dessert that was ultra rich. Thanks again for the recommendation, Natalie! It really was the best meal of the trip!
