I prefer boots when wine tasting. You never know when the owner may invite you to walk the vineyard. Tasting rooms can be a makeshift cave or an outdoor patio so come prepared with lots of layers. Most importantly, wear something cute. With the gorgeous scenery you are bound to take a photo or[…]
I miss wine tasting! I have a few more weeks until the twins are due and I am looking forward to my first glass of red. Here are a few pictures from my trip to Chile. We tasted the local grapes of Casablanca, ate way too much cheese, ceviche and prosciutto (another item I am[…]
We are driving up to Napa tonight, ahhhhh I can’t wait! Every time I’m up there I think “We should move here.” It’s so peaceful and gorgeous. Plus I have yet to eat a meal I didn’t love. Here’s a few of my favorite spots.
I’ve been living in the kitchen lately! The amount of ripe tomatoes our garden produces each week is overwhelming. On the weekends you will find me canning, roasting, salsa-ing, or sauce-ing tomatoes nonstop. Last night we hosted a dinner party and invited all the guests back over for tomorrow night!

While shooting the Fall 2012 campaign for BORELLI we snapped away while practicing yoga at my (new) favorite winery, HammerSky. The vineyard, farmhouse, barn and overall property is jaw-droppingly gorgeous. You MUST stay there next time in Paso Robles. About the Winery / About the Farmhouse
I’m headed to Ridgway, Colorado today for a weekend of wedding festivities. What did I pack? Almost this whole outfit! Remember the dress I wore in Cabo?

Can you tell I’m excited?
