Finally back from a fabulous vacation.

Yes! I’m finally back. My husband and I took a trip to California in celebration of turning 40Β (yikes!) last spring. What a trip! Started up in northern California at Napa Valley for wine tasting, and drove our way down the coast to end at Disneyland in southern California. (Not my husband’s favorite place, but he was a real trooper for me.)

Back to books tomorrow. Here’s some of the fun from our trip.

The grapes are just about ready for harvest in Napa.

    • We lived in Northern California for the first two years when we got married. I love it, but there are so many people! I had forgotten until we went back. Napa is beautiful and a lot of fun. Thanks!
