Live Well: Red, White, and Blue (Part 2)

DSC_8737Last Saturday, my husband, some of our friends and I enjoyed a wonderful day at Ram's Gate Winery in Sonoma. The wine was fantastic (both red and white..are the titles of this post and Monday's starting to make sense now?), the food delicious, and the service impeccable. On top of all of that, it was an absolutely perfect day - it was amazing how quickly the hours passed by as we ate, drank, talked, and laughed sitting in the winery's beautiful indoor-outdoor space. I kind of wish I was going back tomorrow (and every Saturday from here on out...) - I can't recommend it highly enough if you're looking for a relaxed, quiet day in Sonoma.

DSC_8733Well, my first week at Shopkick is coming to a close - can you believe it? It flew by so quickly (I think that's the first time I've ever said that about a work week). After five days I think I can definitively say that I love my job...how great is that? I am looking forward to the weekend, though - a weekend filled with long naps and good food with good friends will be the perfect way to top off a great first week.

Have a great Friday (and a great weekend) and I'll see you back here on Monday!

Eat Well: Napa Pizza Party

One of the fantastic things about living in the San Francisco Bay Area is being able to take a quick day trip up to Napa any time you want. This past Sunday we took full advantage of that perk, and hopped in the car in the afternoon for an evening filled with friends, wine, and food. We started with a wine tasting at Girard (delicious wines - I highly recommend it if you find yourself in Yountville!) and then headed over to Oenotri for a 10-person pizza party that one of my friends purchased on Gilt City. The food was fantastic - amazing pizzas, great pasta, and dessert that was to die for...and I was literally dying because I'm not eating desserts this month! Whether you live nearby or you come visit from afar, put Oenotri on your "must try" list - you won't regret it!
