There are so many wonderful things available to us here in the wine country. I am constantly finding new wines, restaurants and food items worth writing about and I hope that you will enjoy my discoveries.

This blog is not just about weddings, but about what makes this part of the world such a draw; great food, excellent wine and wonderful people. I hope you enjoy reading these posts and can find yourself here, enjoying the same amazing things we do.

Fabulous La Tavola

Had a fantastic time last night at La Tavola's Spring Open House.  So many gorgeous are two of my favorites.  I love the rich texture in the picture above (may not come across that great in the photo) but it is divine and comes in some delicious colors...I think the citrine is my favorite.
The linen below has a beautiful freshness to swirls on an off-white background with vibrant pops of turquoise, green, orange and yellow ~ so chic!
As always, La Tavola throws the most divine parties....

Tara Firma Farms

We had an amazing Sunday last weekend at Tara Firma Farms which is a locally owned and operated CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).  We went with another couple and their daughter with the hopes of finding a farm to support throughout the year.  My thought was to get to know a local farm and the people that work there and care for the animals so when our produce, eggs, cheese and meat arrived every other week, we would all have a connection and appreciation from where it came.  

Well, I was not disappointed....the day was beautiful and we were encouraged to meander around on our own, taking a look at all of the beautiful animals that call this farm home and all of our questions were answered by the knowledgeable staff on hand.  I loved holding the chicks which were only days old while Grace was obsessed with the piglets...pigs are definitely her favorite animal.

After wandering about on the farm for a while we had a leisurely picnic with our friends, drank some nice rose wine and lunched on delicious cheese, bread, salumi and fruit....we couldn't have asked for a better Sunday and we are now looking forward to our first arrival from the farm!
