  • If you squint you can see that I am standing next to 11,673 gallons of wine. Holy fermentation, Batman! 😳🍷⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

They have quite the operation at @cakebreadcellars. And their wines are pretty fabulous too. 🥂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • For my birthday, Brian managed to get tickets to a sold out @rodrigoygabriela concert at the @robertmondavi winery. They were brilliant. 🎇🔥

  • A few weeks ago, I celebrated my 41st birthday. As a gift to myself, I took a break from social media for as long as I felt necessary. Sort of like a mental and emotional vacation ... and apparently that vacation needed to last 3 weeks. 😋⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Another gift was to spend my birthday weekend in the Napa Valley and Sonoma County enjoying some wine and some "us" time. But it wasn't all wine and games. We also tended to a bit of business while in the area. ✔️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We're coming up on our last few weeks at our workamping positions on the coast and it's time for the next adventure. There is still so much for us to learn in the world of wine and beer making and fermentation. So, we're settling down in wine country for the fall and getting our hands dirty working our first "crush". It'll be long hours and a lot of hard work, but the education and experience will be invaluable. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And just think of all the wine we'll drink! 🤪🍇🍷 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • I LOVE botanical gardens and @mendocoastbotanicalgardens is one of the prettiest I've been to. The diversity of California's plant life is just stunning. I'm constantly in awe just driving down the road and it never gets old. 😳😍

I think the Ladybird poppies might be my favorite, but swipe to see some more stunners. 🌷🌹🌺🌸🌼🌿

  • I'm an introvert and some days I just cannot bring myself to interact with the world. This makes social media very difficult for me, as I'm also very private, so sharing even the littlest bit of myself on here is not only mentally exhausting, but physically draining. So I go dark for a day or two at a time and this past weekend was busy - we both work weekends and have for a long time - and I desperately needed to stay quiet. 😶⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In spite of my introverted ways, I genuinely enjoy interacting with people and socializing. But I need that balance of quiet time and solitude every so often. And sometimes I just need a stroll through a beautiful botanical garden to find my reset button for the week. 🌲🌲⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We love kimchi. Salty, tangy, spicy, crunchy and funky. Uh huh, funky*. But in a good way – like umami funk that adds that right amount of indescribable something and elevates a dish that is good to a dish that is freakin’ great. When we want to …

Can we grow food while traveling around the country in an RV? That was one of our first questions when we decided to try homesteading on the road, or as Brian likes to call it, roadsteading. Our first idea was to build a sort of mobile greenhouse …

Raw Cocoa Beans

How hard can it be to make bean to bar chocolate at home? Roast some beans, peel and grind them into liquor, add some additional cocoa butter, sweeten, heat, grind some more, and then pour into bars. Sounds simple enough. So we looked into it, and as …

One of the benefits of living in Florida during the winter months – aside from 78 degree days in February – is the abundance of beautiful farmers’ market offerings of fruits and vegetables that we wouldn’t otherwise have access to if we were still in the Northeast. …
