Good morning! I hope everyone on the East Coast is safe and sound after the days of Irene’s storm. I was lucky enough to head out West for a meeting at The Academy of Art so I missed the beast of the storm.
One of my favorite things to do when visiting a new city is to take a morning run through town. I think it gives me a good sense of direction for where we are and you get to see sights you may have otherwise missed. This morning I woke up in Yountville, CA, part of Napa Valley. We are staying at an adorable French style inn, the Maison Fleurie right in the heart of town.
On my run I passed beautiful homes, bunny rabbits on the side of the road, grapes on the vine an arms-length away, and rose after rose after rose. For anyone including garden roses in their wedding bouquet, this is the place to be.
Ok, off for some wine tasting! If you’ve been to Napa share your tips please!
