  • In keeping with the wine theme... we're looking forward to spending more time in this room. The beautiful vineyards of @smallvines will be our next adventure and we couldn't be more excited to be a part of this amazing operation. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Autumn in wine country? Yes, please! 🙌🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • 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. 🌲🌲⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
