Cali Inspired // Travel

So, it's been a few weeks since N or I have posted - Life is crazy right about now. We booked 3 events in January and have been going on all cylinders. We did get to take a break and head out to the Napa Valley in California in February, and oh man, MAJOR inspiration. 

We all landed in SFO on a Thursday morning then rented a car and headed up the 101 to Sausalito for a quick bite to eat at Fred's Place (best breakfast in the world). After our tummies and hearts were full from a great meal, we packed back into the SUV and headed to our home for the weekend in Sonoma. The house we rented on Air BNB was actually on the vineyard that belongs to our favorite place for champagne,  Chateau Domaine Carneros. I can't tell you how relaxing it was to wake up and have this view of the vineyard and fog while drinking my coffee and having quiet time. 

We visited several wineries on Friday, including driving an epic winding drive up a mountain to Pride Mountain Vineyards (highly recommended). Interesting fact, Pride Mountain actually splits the Sonoma/Napa Valley line, so they have to move their wine press physically back and forth across the line during production - naturally I stood on both sides at once. 

Other vineyards we loved were Hess Collection, Clos du Vol, and Castello di Amorosa - which you know, was built in exact representation of a Tuscan castle. 

When life gets going and you get in a flow, it gets progressively harder to just stop and enjoy where you're at and refocus on where you want to go. This trip ended up being just that for N and I and we're so excited to share with you this month some big plans ahead! 


Keep an eye out for posts on upcoming pop-up events, showers, gatherings and even a JGE Giveaway that we have planned for next month!! We also ask for your prayers as we approach some different deadlines and ideas we have brewing. Where do you like to travel or go to for inspiration?! We need even more ideas!

With Love,

S + N
