Last weekend I traveled up north to Geyserville with a friend for a bit of wine tasting, antiquing and frolicking. I grew up in Santa Rosa (the "bottle neck of wine country") so it's always fun for me to visit my old favorite spots. We made a quick stop in Petaluma so I could visit my favorite antique store and then made our way to the Francis Coppola winery for lunch on a sunny balcony overlooking the vineyards. I felt pretty darn spoiled! A few wineries later I ended up at my parents' house where my grandma complimented me on my choice of a short slip under the longer sheer dress. My mom just wrinkled her nose and said "I'm not sure I approve of the 'nude illusion' look." Ha! I'll keep that in mind, Mom.
P.S. I must admit that I felt more than a little guilty about my rather luxurious little adventure when I read the news the following day about the shooting in Norway. My heart goes out to everyone that was affected by this terrible tragedy.
