Being a mom of two boys, my husband and I always try to find a good balance when we travel and dine out. We often search for the cool, kid-friendly places to have a good craft beer after a day at Great America, the water park, or Train Town. Fortunately, we live in a very […]

Today I received a thank you note from a woman who lost everything in the Wine Country fires. Minutes before receiving her thank you note, it struck me how tired I was and that my body was literally aching from lack of sleep. This fatigue had caused me to spend very little time with my […]
Wine Country has such incredible produce! My son Marcos and I go to the Sonoma Farmers’ Market every Tuesday throughout the summer. It’s really exciting when the market begins, and we go especially early on the first day to take advantage of the fresh produce. Every week, we look forward to the ever-changing produce that […]

Located at the very southern end of Sonoma County, Schellville is one of my favorite places. Cooled by morning fog and coastal breezes, this area is known for producing great wines. It’s also a sweet spot to spend the day. Here are my favorite places to put on your day-trip itinerary of Schellville. Eating In Schellville […]
Summer is around the corner and the Farmer’s Markets are in full force! The North Bay takes food seriously, and it goes way beyond pairing the perfect cheese and salumi with the right local wine. Here’s a list of local Farmer’s Markets, most are open now, but the few that open in June state as […]
There’s something magical about moving away, learning that the world is a bigger place than you’d ever imagined, and then bringing your own little family back to rediscover it all. My childhood home is different now, but that’s also because I’m different now (read: older, wiser, and a wine lover!). So aside from the obvious adventures in viticulture, I’ll leave […]
