A couple of weeks ago, Patrick and I celebrated our eighth Anniversary together with a weekend getaway to the beautiful Sonoma Valley. Do you guys remember this post from our last Sonoma Valley trip for Valentine’s Day earlier this year?! Sonoma Valley holds a special place in Patrick and I’s heart. We have been visiting with family for years and we just got engaged at a winery up there! So many of you guys have reached out saying how helpful these Itinerary’s are for planning special getaway’s to wine country, so I am excited to share all the fun things we did on our recent trip! If you decide to use this itinerary (or any part of it) for a romantic getaway or girls weekend, send me an email or DM with a photo from one of the the locations and i’ll make sure to share it on my Instagram Stories!
A couple weekends ago Patrick and I packed our bags and headed on a Valentine’s Day getaway to the beautiful Sonoma Valley. I received so many questions regarding what we did and where we stayed after sharing our trip on my Instagram Stories, so I thought it would be helpful to share our full weekend itinerary here to reference. If you decide to use this itinerary for a romantic getaway or girls weekend, send me an email or DM with a photo from one of the the locations and i’ll make sure to share it on my Instagram Stories!
Patrick and I had our Anniversary getaway over the weekend up in Forestville at The Farmhouse Inn. We had such a relaxing stay, I am trying to find a way to get back up there!
One of my favorite parts about living in San Francisco is that I get the hustle and bustle of the city during the week, and can escape for the weekend with just a drive over the bridge. It truly feels like a mini vacation whenever we make the quick hour drive into wine country. For example, if you drive an hour south of San Francisco to Matanzas Creek Winery, you can walk amongst the most stunning lavender fields. It has the most heavenly aroma and you can actually purchase Lavender Essential Oil made on the property. I love putting a couple drops on my pillow before I go to sleep for relaxation and to improve my sleep.
I’ll find any reason to wear a tulle skirt, and what better place than at a castle nestled in the hills of Napa Valley? I have talked about this incredible winery several times before. It’s beauty is something that cannot be easily described, nor captured in a picture. It is something you must see for yourself.
Hey guys! I honestly don’t think it is possible to have too many white dresses. I stumbled upon this maxi from HER Boutique and knew I had to have it!! That back rope detailing? Swoon. It’s one of those dresses I know I’ll have forever and will bring along on several beach vacations. It is also extremely versatile, which I love. The dress speaks for itself, so you don’t have to pair anything with it to have a great outfit. If you’re headed out for the weekend try pairing it with a sun hat and flats! Or wear it for engagement or family photos with a flower crown to make it look ethereal and incredibly boho chic.
