I’d go back in a second. Our days were perfect. We ate like I have never eaten before. Wow are there some killer restaurants you have to hit if you go. I’ll get to a few of those, one right away!
As we drove into the valley I had pre chosen a restaurant for lunch that turned out to be the best meal I have ever ate. Mustards Grill in St. Helena. The restaurant has gardens to the side full of their fresh vegetables.. eating gluten free isn’t a problem because their food is so freshly put together.
It is time. You’ve decided to bring that empty corner of your property to life with a colorful tree or determined you can no longer bear the watchful eyes of nosy neighbors and intend to plant a tree for privacy. It may be an easy decision to add a tree to your landscape but with several hundred types of trees in North America, it can be overwhelming to figure out what kind to plant. A singular specimen tree is a popular type of focal point at any given location, the most popular large specimen trees being Mexican Sycamore and Southern Live Oak.
I had the mongolian pork chop.. yup.. sort of a different lunch choice for me, but ohh thank goodness I tried it. Unreal :)
Then we were on our way to Calistoga to Solage. Hubs and I spent a week here years ago, and I’ve always wanted to go back. Having a romantic holiday with the hubs was great, but omg it was way too much fun with friends. While there you have to go for a bike ride ( bikes come with each studio. I haven’t ridden a bike in years and Ashlyn would tell you I laughed like a 12 year old our first tour around. It was awesome. Book a spa treatment and have the mudslide. It’s amazing :)
every day we found time to lounge at the pool and have a mojito or two, and we decided that we have never gotten ready so much as we did on this trip.. morning pre breakfast, post pool, pre supper.. lol. The heat does that to you! We weren’t complaining though.. just hubs the day it hit 100 ;)
a trip to Dean & Deluca.. I have no words for how insanely incredible this place is!
oh and one more crazy good restaurant, Cindy Pawlcyn’s that is tied to Mustards Grill.. both places, incredible!
A visit and tasting at St.Supery was really nice.. their moscato is delish!
Travelling with friends was so good… so good!
design philosophy | providing a foundation to grow and alter through the years, I keep the core basic and layer in the current, creating a room that is innately yours. I believe great interiors are not found in one shop. I know you should feel a sense of calm in your space as well as balance, and revel in that gut feeling that it’s the right fit.
