Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!


Can you believe that it is already Thanksgiving? I am shocked that fall has completely flown by and we are into one of my favorite seasons. I have so much to be thankful for this year.

One of the things I am most excited about is the trip my family has planned this Thanksgiving to Sonoma. As you know, I frequently visit wine country but I never EVER get sick of it. I could go up there every single weekend and still enjoy myself every time. What is not to love about wine and beautiful scenery? The year, my family asked me to plan this trip and we have some great things in store.

I thought that I would share a few of my favorites, so you have the best of the best if you ever visit Sonoma. Feel free to add any of your recommendations in the comments. Would love to know what your favorite hidden gems are!


Sonoma Pool House - You have heard me rave about this place before. This time I actually get to stay there myself. Although we will only be a party of 4, the house sleeps up to 8. It sits in a perfect location next to a working vineyard and has a beautiful pool.


Hamel Family - One of my absolute favorites. I can't wait to share this special place with my family.

Ram's Gate - The decor is spot-on and the vistas of the valley are absolutely perfect.

Bella Winery - This little family-run winery is a hidden gem that one of my friends introduced me to. They serve little bites with each tasting that pair with the wine.


Girl and the Fig Cafe - This restaurant is a little hard to get into but well worth it. It's one of my go-tos. The classic French bistro fare is perfect for the wine country.

Glen Ellen Star - I went to this restaurant for my birthday and loved the local, casual vibe of it. They have this amazing brick chicken that is super flavorful. 

I'll make sure to share pics when I get back. Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
