So long, October! That was fast. Pumpkin patch, train rides, Halloween decorating, pumpkin scones, sweater weather – and flip flop weather, who am I kidding? This is California after all!
In the midst of all this Halloween/October excitement, we celebrated two kiddos turning 4 and 1 a couple of weekends ago. It’s hard to believe, yet true. It makes me want to stop and reflect on the beauty of this life we’re given. I hope that like children, we always find joy in all things, love deeply, and continue to develop, grow and learn about ourselves and this enormously small world. Stay curious, and courageous.
Speaking of birthdays, we also celebrated my “little” sister’s birthday this past weekend. By little, I mean, she’s like, oh, say: 5’10 and a cool college kid! Not your typical “little”. We had a blast driving our whole family in a rental van up to Napa for some wine tasting, lunch, and general day trip. V. Sattui has a great area with picnic tables and a BBQ with ribs and mozzarella tomato paninis that were amazing over a few bottles of their wine! Afterwards, the wine at Turnbull did not disappoint! Either did their gardens, I got so much inspiration for our yard we’ve been landscaping over the last couple of months 🙂
