Anniversary Junket

M and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary on May 8. We drove to a nice hotel in Santa Rosa for the night and dinner. The next day, since Santa Rosa is adjacent to the Sonoma Valley and the Russian River area, we went to a couple of wineries. I didn’t take a lot of photos, but here are a few.

M does not like extra, non-sleeping pillows on the bed. Fortunately, while we were at dinner, the maid turned down the covers, and stacked all these pillows in the corner. M would have thrown them off the bed in all directions: “They’re throw pillows.”
Dinner was very nice. You can’t see my chocolate truffle cake with salted caramel gelato because my water glass is in the way, but it was really good. M had the gelato trifecta: salted caramel, chocolate and vanilla.
There were lots of flowers at the hotel.
We saw some vineyards.
The winery had a fancy garden.
And another winery, Artesa, has quite the fountains. It is one of our favorite wineries.
It was a short trip, but we had a good time, and it was fun to take time off during the work week.

  1. Happy anniversary! It looks like a lovely trip. :) I often find that the short trips are the most enjoyable. You are away just long enough to enjoy it, but not so long that you start to wish you were home.

  2. Happy Anniversary to you! It looks like you had a lovely celebration! What a fabulous place for a little get-away. (I’m going to be chuckling about the “throw” pillows all afternoon.)
