I love taking last minute short trips, especially when the trip is up north where I can visit my daughter and spend some quality time with her.

This trip was a bit different. My baby started a real job. So what did that mean for us? She could only see us at night for dinner because the responsible adult that she has grown to be will not take time off work because of deadlines and responsibilities. As I was trying to talk her into taking a day off, she looked me straight in the eyes and said: “Mom, you taught me that first you work for your reputation, and then your reputation will work for you.” I guess my baby was listening after all.

Our friends from back east joined us on this trip so yesterday we drove to Napa Valley. The day was sunny and warm, everyone was happy and cheerful, but I, however, wasn’t looking forward to this trip simply because I couldn’t drink. Thinking that I will be bored while everyone samples wines and ports slowly getting tipsy and leaving me behind, I was apprehensive to say the least. I was wrong. As we visited one winery after next, I had a blast. It was a different experience, listening to the tour guides explain the process while being sober has lots of advantages.

Trying to look like everyone else after 5 glasses of wine.

The scenery is simply breathtaking.

If you are ever in Napa, stop by Mustards Restaurant for lunch it’s simply superb!

Lunch was fantastic, but dessert was out of this world.  

(I’m trying to get some recipes, if I do, you will be the first to know)

With my friend Regina, dinning at San Francisco restaurant “Boulevard“, was a really fatting experience, my diet went right out of the window, but it was worth every bite.

If you are planning to visit Napa, make sure to make reservations at the restaurant RED, I couldn’t believe the combination of sauces that were served with all kinds of dishes. Every dish was better than the one before.
