Sonoma!


Well we had a wonderful trip to Sonoma!  We went there for a wedding of one of my husbands friends from college...

Saturday morning, my husband and I took a long walk through the town of Sonoma...and all I have are i-phone pics...but at least I have pictures and that is a lot for me:)



...we went for a stroll in their state park, which is located in the town and saw some wonderful greenery!


...and flowers...


...and giant trees!


...the Vallejo home was a nice historic site to see in the park...



...and the Vellejo side yard was picturesque!!


...then we walked around the town and saw some wonderful homes...loved the striking blue and white in this one above!


...and all the gorgeous flowers!  Wish I had a green thumb...but I did mention to my husband that if the weather was this nice in Tennessee...I might be a much better gardner!





...the ivy in Sonoma is huge!!  We do not have ivy this large in the south!


...gorgeous alley's in the town of Sonoma...


...and so many restaurants to choose from!


...we ended up choosing to eat at...


...loved this entrance staircase! Sorry so blurry!


Gorgeous lobby...


...below is a professional picture from their website...


...after lunch we had a wine tasting at a namesake winery:)

...my maiden name is Roche...no relation though!

...and then...


...it was time to get ready for the beautiful wedding at a local winery!

Next, I will share the pictures from the 24 hour whirlwind in Sausalito and San Francisco...quite a quick trip...but well worth it!

We came home last night to some packages at the door...new stuff for the little store!   Today, I have to go and tidy up the store...I bet it is a mess right now...and pick up our little dog from the "doggie hotel"!

Happy Monday!

Caroline, you were right in my backyard! Too bad it was a whirlwind trip -- next time I'll show you around. Looks like you had a lovely time.

What fun! I adore Sonoma and have stayed at the Sonoma Mission Inn a couple of times. It's so scenic and the food and wine are amazing.

So glad you enjoyed some time away!!
