Yesterday was my Birthday.
I love birthdays.
A day all in the name of you! That you get to celebrate your life, your accomplishments, your failures, and you literally get your cake and get to eat it too.
This year I celebrated my Birthday with my Boyfriend.
We started the day by driving to the Napa Valley. California’s famous wine country. It’s funny because I never used to like wine, but over the last year and half I began to appreciate it much more. I found one’s I very much enjoy and thought that this trip would be awesome!
My boyfriend made me a gift basket to take with us so we would have snacks …boy does he know me or what?! He also made sure everything was gluten free! So sweet!
First we went to Mumm Winery in Napa. They are known for their sparkling Wines and Champagne.
I got to taste three of their sparkling wines, one of which was created by Carlos Santana. It was actually my favorite one!
After that we headed into Napa for lunch, it was delicious!
We then drove the pretty country roads over to another winery via the recommendation of the lady that served us at Mumm. It is a castle! The castle was built with materials all shipped here from Europe. There are authentic pieces in the castle from the 1400s and on. The tour was fun, very educational and ended with a delicious tasting!
After picking up a few bottles of wine, we headed to down town Napa to check into a cute and historic hotel. Thankfully the earthquake that struck did not damage it.
We then had a lovely dinner and took a stroll along the river. It was An absolutely awesome day!
I appreciated every minute of it, and am thankful for the entire thing. I’m praying that 34 will be an awesome year.
