BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS: PART I.

Hey- remember me?

I have not posted a blog in weeks due to school. I’m taking 4 classes, and all are really challenging to say the least. I have been swamped with work, group projects, and when I’m not at school all I want to do is watch Real Housewives. This semester is off to a hard start, so I can’t imagine how exhausted I’m going to be come November and December. Ugh.

But enough about that- my 25th birthday is only a few days away {on the 30th} and this past weekend I celebrated it early! I hung out in San Francisco one day, and the next I took a day trip up to Sonoma County. The weather was perfect and sunny both days! I am already planning my next visit to Sonoma, because there’s still a lot more I want to see.

Here are a few pictures from San Francisco:

 

 

Here are a few pictures wine tasting and exploring Sonoma:

  • HEALDSBURG SHED

 

  • FERRARI-CARANO VINEYARDS & WINERY

 

I even went to Ford Cappola Winery- but I didn’t take any good pictures except for the outside & sipping on a cocktail by the pool bar! By then, I was too tipsy to focus on taking pictures!

 

 

I had such a beautiful weekend. I am looking forward to celebrating again with my family (and most importantly, my twin sister). Stay tuned for Birthday Celebrations Part II!

25TH BIRTHDAY IDEAS: WINE TASTING IN SONOMA COUNTY.

It’s officially August! Which means my birthday is next month! And not any birthday, it’s a milestone birthday: twenty-five! Craziness. So I have been trying to think of ideas of what to do. I’ve been to Napa Valley for wine tasting (even celebrated my 21st there), but I’ve never gone to Sonoma. I think this will be the perfect place to celebrate officially being in my mid-twenties: drink delicious wine and enjoy the gorgeous scenery.

I’ve narrowed the list down to 5 wineries I’m interested in visiting, for the weekend getaway:

 

1. FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA WINERY | Geyserville, Ca.

 

 

2. VIANSA SONOMA | Sonoma, Ca.

 

 

3. FERRARI CARANO VINEYARDS & WINERY | Healdsburg, Ca.

 

 

4. GLORIA FERRER CAVES & VINEYARDS | Sonoma, Ca.

 

 

5. JORDAN VINEYARD & WINERY | Healdsburg, Ca.

 

 

If anyone has been to Sonoma, and has any good winery recommendations that I haven’t listed, I’d love to know what they are. Also any hotel/restaurant/coffee shop recommendations would be greatly appreciated as well!
