wine and relaxation

My family has been going on a lot of little trips this month.  When I travel with the kids, I often feel like I need a vacation from my vacation!  So we did just that.  The day after we returned from our last excursion, my hubby took off one extra day so we could have a day together, alone, without kids!   We drove up to Sonoma {It's only 45 minutes away- yeah!}. 
We could not have asked for a better day, beautiful clear blue skies, sunshine, luscious vineyards all around, peace, quiet and some tasty wine! 
We stopped at Ravenswood and, my new favorite, Gundlach Bunchschu Winery!   Don't I feel lucky to live so close to wine country!?  They let us sneak around the vineyards and get a closer look at the fields.  I wish I had a private tour but it was fun checking out the different varieties of grapes, leaves and sizes of plants.
Feeling so relaxed...
