napa love note
into words. they’re kind of like the warm tingles
on my skin when i bask in your sunshine and
take in the green vineyards that go on forever.
even when i think about visiting you, i can taste
the very best food, feel the breeze as i bike along
quiet country lanes, breathe in the smell of wood
and smoke from ovens, and feel the golden sun
at the perfect temperature.
and you passed with flying colors. they loved you
as much as we do, and you were quite a
show-off with your 80 degree weather,
lovely breeze, bike paths, sunny lunches, and
cozy intimate dinners. you were a little slice
of heaven this weekend and every weekend
we visit…so those are going to be increasing.
we’ll see you again soon!
we started out in napa by staying at the meritage resort.
this place is just south of the town of napa, and it feels
so secluded. it’s brand new and so nice with a spa,
estate cave, pool, great rooms, shuttles to town,
and a vineyard right on the edge of the property.
^^ after the best night’s sleep in this comfy bed,
(doesn’t this picture make you want to crawl right in?)
we headed down to the vineyard for a walk and then
for some breakfast poolside. what could be better?
^^ just two guys loving life.
^^ the vineyard is tucked against
the back of the resort.
^^ view from our room window.
i’ll wake up to that any day.
it’s easy to see why so many weddings
are held here in wine country!
even though we don’t drink wine,
it’s interesting to see all of
the vineyards + learn about different
kinds of grapes they use.
my mom and i tried out the steam room and came
out to find these two in a serious game of bocce ball.
^^ exploring the spa with this handsome mister!
we loved staying at the meritage resort. it was so relaxing
and just nice and new. lots of fun people were there for
the weekend, and it has a great feel since it is just a little
bit outside town and very secluded. along with staying
here we had lots of great meals all throughout
napa and sonoma + a bike ride, so more posts to come
from our weekend! wish we were still there!
