I could get used to this…

What a wonderful day Jenna and I have had so far here in Sonoma. We decided to postpone yoga until tomorrow, so after breakfast I went on a run and then we walked into town for some tea and window shopping.

We ended up at Murphy Goode Winery! (aren’t their corks pretty??)


Wine tasting at 10:30 a.m.? Sure, why not! ;)


Jenna’s friend Hardy who met us out last night works there, and was excited to give us a tasting :)

Obviously we had to try on their trademark Viking horn hats ;)


After our tasting, the three of us headed over to a wonderful vegetarian place in town called Cafe Gratitude for lunch.


I had the most delicious bowl of quinoa and veggies with coconut-curry sauce entitled “I am Graceful.” :)


After lunch, the three of us headed out to do some more tastings and enjoy the beautiful scenery :)



I love this picture… I was feeling creative :) Not too bad for a point and shoot!



Now we’re back at Jenna’s place having a little siesta :) We’re heading over to the grocery store shortly to get provisions because a few of us are making dinner at Hardy’s place tonight! The menu we have going is sounding really delicious… stay tuned :)


What’s your favorite type of wine? I really love Pinot Noir, although my favorite wine of the day was a Chardonnay from Murphy Goode!

    Look at you getting all fancy with the pictures! I love. Also love the HAT. Sort of goes with your devilish halloween costume. I hope you kept it for next halloween. You could do many things with that. Like be SUPER VIKING ANNE, or something.

    That’s a great shot with a point and shoot! I’m so jealous of you’re trip to Cafe Gratitude…what a great place to be able to go eat…love the names of the menu items too, very uplifting. Fitting for you two gals :)

  12. 12

    Totally jealous!! Yummy restaurant. I still like Shiraz (from Eastern Australia) the best but Pinot Noirs are also a more recent fave (esp. from the Oregon’s Willamette valley!)

  13. 13

    Just what camera are you using these days???

    I have a Fuji Film Z20 – just a little point and shoot, but I’ve been impressed with it! The only time it isn’t great is in dim lighting, which I why I hardly ever post when I go out to eat at restaurants! I’m saving up for a manual digital though because I LOVE taking photos :) -Anne

    My favorite wine is Red Zinfandel. My favorite winery is V. Sattui and Ravenswood. I am so envious of your wine tasting adventure. I would love to go to wine country. Love your blog.

  1. […] I can’t believe I’m already off to San Francisco for the Foodbuzz Festival tomorrow! I’m so excited to see all my blog friends (I’m rooming with my girls Jenna and Tina — and also spending a night with Stepfanie from DailySpark, the website I’ve been contributing guest posts to for awhile!) and to meet some new ones! The weekend sounds like it will be filled with great food and interesting blog-related sessions (photography/video how-tos, foodie cooking sessions, being successful with your blog, etc.). The festival ends Sunday morning, but I’ll be staying until Monday and spending some time playing in wine country! I can’t wait — last time I was out there was when I visited Jenna over New Years […]
