It’s finally Friday! I feel so fortunate for all of the traveling I have gotten to do lately! These images were taken at Meadowood last week, a luxury resort nestled away in St. Helena. When you arrive at Meadowood you are instantly transported into another world. City dwellers make the escape to Meadowood for relaxation, and travelers may come for the 3 Michelin Star Restaurant. Regardless of why people come, it is clear why you’d want to stay once you get here.

Rocks were covered with bright green moss, and swans swam in ponds. I love living in the city, but am thankful that places like this are a short drive away! This is such a beautiful time of year in wine country. The Fall leaves are at their peak, and downtown St. Helena was bustling with energy! I wore this deep burgundy dress from HER Boutique for the day. I love the tiny details, neck tie and sheen it has. It looks super luxurious. I can’t believe it is under $100!

A couple days later Patrick and I packed our bags and made a quick drive to The Farmhouse Inn for an Anniversary getaway for some major relaxation. I will be doing a full post on our stay soon, but it was one of the most incredible stays I have ever had and recommend it a million times over. I am heading to Yosemite today for a photography trip with a few other creatives from Northern California. Make sure to follow along on Snapchat, it is going to an insane and amazing experience!! (Snapchat: TheCityBlonde)

Early next week I am heading to Colorado for two weeks. I’m starting to feel like I am living out of a suitcase and I’m definitely not mad about it!
