After a few days spent in San Francisco, we headed to Napa for a couple days. My cousin Melissa is a winemaker there so we got the royal treatment! We slipped up to Sonoma for a couple hours to check it out. The drive from Napa to Sonoma is insane! We got to drive around the Sonoma square and look at the cute shops and restaurants. I would love to come back to see more of the area. After that we made the trip to Petaluma to go to Lagunitas for dinner and drinks. We have spent a considerable amount of time at the Lagunitas in Chicago, so we were really excited to check out the OG.

San Francisco

Mitch and I recently had the pleasure of taking a trip to San Francisco to visit family. It was the trip of a lifetime! I couldn’t imagine a better vacation. Time spent with family, beautiful scenery and the most incredible food! We even made a trip up to Napa and Sonoma but more about that in the next post.

I have been lucky enough to visit San Francisco several times in my life. It’s been quite a while since my last trip, and I was so lucky to show Mitch why I loved it so much. My Aunt and Uncle met us at the airport, and without wasting any time, we headed straight to the Golden Gate Bridge. Wouldn’t it be cool if those people in the picture below were us? No idea who they are. Anywho, it was such a beautiful day! Unseasonably warm and hardly any fog. There was also a really cool art exhibit going on at a building where we stopped to view the bridge so we checked that out as well.

We stopped and met my cousin for lunch, walked around Mission for a bit and then headed to Benecia (where my Aunt and Uncle reside) for a delicious homemade dinner which included Raclette. I’m officially obsessed with Raclette now, thanks Aunt Maureen!
