A&C greeted us with a (copied) sign and happy screams!
Wednesday we went running and then headed to the vineyards. We started at Coppola, where we had lunch (think Italian-American fare in pretty setting).
Then we headed to our favorite winery, Bella. We enjoyed a tasting and a really cool demo where they blended not-yet-ready wines to create a combination that tasted way better than the sum of its parts. And then --
In-N-Out . . . happened.
Bike tour via Wine Country Bikes!
We did this 7 years ago, although that time it was just Josh & me on the tour (I think some other couple had cancelled). This time there were 8 of us and the ride was somewhat shorter and slower paced. We hit 3 vineyards (Martorana, Dry Creek, and Geyser Peak) and covered 17 miles according to my Garmin -- the first time I had ever used it in bike mode. We enjoyed a really romantic and delicious dinner at Farmhouse Inn.
For lunch on Friday -- our actual anniversary -- we had managed to secure French Laundry reservations, and we decided that 10 years of marriage was deserving of this level of celebration.
Honestly, I am still reliving this experience! True bucket-list item - check. Will we go back? I hope so, perhaps in another 10 years.
I can wait :)
The whole trip was incredibly relaxing, slow-paced, and delicious on multiple levels. Josh and I really enjoyed having the time together and spent time scheming/dreaming/planning, as well as just savoring the moments as they unfolded.
Here's to 10, 20, 30, 40, 50+ more.♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
