Weekend Reading

Weekend hellos my friends! I am so excited that my cousins from Australia have come to visit this weekend, all the way from Melbourne. Two years ago, I spent three days in Melbourne with them and now they’ve come to visit me! I’ll be playing tour guide, taking them out to the vineyards to experience my five favorite wineries in Sonoma. I always enjoy them more when I get to live the fresh experience vicariously through their eyes.
