Weekend Recap: Napa Valley

How was your weekend?  I hope you enjoyed a few relaxing days and are recharged for the coming week.  I am a firm believer in taking time off from work on weekends to recharge, so you won't get burned out and will feel creatively refreshed come Monday.  Sam and I got back last night from our weekend getaway to Napa Valley.  It was lovely!  Meeting Sam's parents for the first time was a real treat, not to mention visiting nearly 10 different wineries!
We stayed at the Silverado Resort & Spa.  The mansion in the top right picture was originally built in 1870, and now serves as the front desk and concierge for the hotel.  The gardens outside were simply stunning!  The champagne tasting shown in the bottom left picture was taken at Mumm Napa vineyard.  Of course, I was in heaven at the selection of cheeses available V.Sattui (another winery).
We enjoyed the pool at our resort, and I couldn't resist taking shots of the beautiful roses and gardens at all the pretty wineries.  I definitely came away with a new appreciation for wine, especially Pinot Noirs!  I also couldn't resist getting these champagne flutes...


Now all I need to do is have a girlfriend over to enjoy some champy with...
