When I recieved the news that M and I were invited to spend the weekend in the town of St. Helena, Napa Valley with friends of his, I was ecstatic. The drive from San Francisco was breathtaking...watching the landscape slowly change and temperature rapidly rise as we entered wine country. Olive trees lined the streets, setting a foreground for the miles of vineyards set between two large mountain peaks. Pulling down Silverado lane, we reached our final destination; an old barn / winery estate from 1880. Surrounded by rows of lavender and rosemary, grape vines, and "welcome home" decorations made by the amazingly creative Bea- I knew a great weekend was to come.
