Memorial Weekend Staycation

“Ah, there’s nothing like staying at home for real comfort.” ~Jane Austen We’re just wrapping up another five day staycation, and it was so incredibly relaxing.

Ploughman’s Lunch

Ploughman’s Lunch Jeff and I enjoyed Ploughman’s lunch on the front porch today while it rained.

Visiting Red Wing-Falconer Vineyards

We visit Falconer Vineyards several times a year… Especially during the warm months, for romantic ‘wine picnics.’ Sometimes we pack an elaborate picnic basket with brie, lavender honey, baguette, honey crisp apples, tart red grapes, anjou pears, oven roasted garlic artisan bread, marinated olives, and dark chocolate. Other times we stop at the local Sub…

Date Night With Jeff-“Vino in the Valley”

“In Europe we thought of wine as something as healthy and normal as food and also a great giver of happiness and well being and delight. Drinking wine was not a snobbism nor a sign of sophistication nor a cult; it was as natural as eating and to me as necessary.” ~Ernest Hemingway ‘A Movable…
