B's parents flew out to visit with us this past weekend, a first for them, so I thought I'd share a couple of my favorite snaps from our time together. I feel grateful that they have been so kind and welcoming to me since day one -- it was a true pleasure (and fun!) to host them, and I know not everyone can say the same about their significant other's families.
One of B's extremely generous clients gifted us with his to live for gorgeous home in wine country for two nights. It was the perfect way for B to catch up with his family outside of the city hustle, and for us to relax under the remaining few weeks of summer sun. I took full advantage of their lovely pool to re-connect with my mermaid roots. We are so thankful for their hospitality and hope to visit again sometime! (hint hint, Brandon, make sure you keep up the good training work!!)
Another highlight was certainly getting to stomp grapes Lucy & Ethel style at Grgich Hills Estate, though admittedly if we hadn't also been given a t-shirt to put our red foot prints on, $30 would have felt like a bit of a waste. As you'll see by my delicate expression, it mildly grossed me out at first. Gosh, I am such a catch. At least we can officially check that off the California bucket list :)
This is a mix of iPhone & DSLR shots, since I am still figuring out when it is most appropriate to use which. And by that I mean I am still trying to muster up the energy to lug around my big camera more often vs. the ease & convenience of just whipping out the ol' cell.
I hope everyone else had an enjoyable weekend as well, and that October is off to a beautiful start!
More essay responses to my amazing readers are in the works, by the way. Thank you for continuing to stick with me on those...
