we went away

July 14, 2010

Early Friday morning, we dropped True and Brave off at Grammie and Grumpy’s and made our way north to the Napa/Sonoma area to celebrate our five year anniversary. It was kind of a spontaneous trip as we just decided on Wednesday, but we are so glad we got away for a bit, with our special little companion because I am her breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Friday consisted of a nice long drive, but I love road trips, so this was not a problem for me and we made a quick little stop in San Francisco. I have to say that I absolutely love that city! Then, we were off to Sonoma to check into our hotel, which we got an amazing deal on via priceline, then we headed to a yummy dinner at The Girl and The Fig.

Saturday started off at Cornerstone Gardens and we had fun looking at all the different areas (and taking fun pictures in each area) and came home with so many good ideas for our garden.

Then, we grabbed food for a picnic lunch at Jack London State Park, after which we decided to visit a few wineries. Then for dinner, we just picked up food from The Girl and The Fig again and ate it on the balcony of our hotel room.

Sunday we made a few other stops before we headed back home… Chateau Sonoma, Bouchon Bakery, Woodhouse Chocolates, and then a picnic lunch at Oakville Grocery. All lovely and perfect to end our little five year celebrating and to send us back home full, excited, and more in love with Northern California.

So that was my weekend and thus the reason I have been absent in this little space. Also, because first thing Monday morning I took off running and am working like crazy for Renegade, but a nice little vacation was just what we needed! Plus, I just like being with my Benny!
Thanks for the anniversary wishes friends! We definitely had a fun time celebrating five years of God’s goodness and grace in our marriage and we are excited to keep experiencing God’s goodness for many more years to come!!!
