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!
Is there anything better than a Sunday in December? If you’re brave enough to go the mall anytime in December, I commend you. After experiencing the chaos of downtown San Francisco during Christmas time, Patrick and I opted for quick online gift shopping this weekend, and spent our time outside of the city and far from the malls.
This is my ideal weekend outfit. It transitions perfectly from day to night and there is nothing I love more than a red sweater in December. I got this sweater from HER Boutique because you know I have a thing for exposed shoulders, as well as a cozy knit I can cuddle up in.
Good morning, guys! It has been a crazy few weeks and is only about to get crazier! I spent the past weekend in Yosemite with an inspiring group of creatives, where ironically enough, we had no WiFi for 3 days. It felt amazing to step away from social media to enjoy the beauty of such an incredible place and appreciate the company of some of the most interesting people. It will be a tough couple of days getting back into the swing of things after such an amazing trip, but I feel so incredibly fortunate that I am able to travel and create inspiring content for a living.
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.
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.
