Happy Friday

Happy Friday!!  It’s the long weekend.  Yippeee!!  What do you have planned for this memorial day?  

We have business school friends visiting from New York City.  I’m over the moon happy that they’re in town and we can show them around.  Today, I am taking the day off of work.  Lovely reader and good friend, Aimee,  put together an awesome itinerary for the day.  We’ll be hitting up only the best wineries in Sonoma and Healdsburg complete with a lunch at Domaine Chandon.  So sophisticated.

I was in charge of planning Saturday so we are headed over to my family ranch where we’ll be drinking cheap beer, the boys will be making sausages, bar-b-queing ribs and we’ll all take some long hikes.  So not sophisticated but still a good time.  

I’m off to go plan an outfit that will still look cute after I’ve had a few too many in wine country (does that even exist?).  I’d like to leave you this weekend with my all time favorite Sonoma home spread…

Home designed by Antonio Martins.  I love the rustic, casual vibe of this Sonoma home.  Martins found many of the items, with the help of his clients, at Bay Area flea markets, resale shops and salvage yards.  Such an inspiration for finding beauty in other’s leftovers.  I love the creativity!

    I told Aimee to make sure she tells you how much I enjoy your blog. It’s transparent and honest, concise, full of pictures, and a youthful perspective that is always welcome. Have a wonderful day and raise a toast to the health of us all some time today.

    lucky you to be going to sonoma/healdsburg. . . we stayed @ the les mars hotel a bit ago and loved every minute, food @ cyrus was divine and their open arms to “all things” healdsburg square was welcoming; we have even considered moving there when retirement feels right! your ‘ranch day’ sounds lovely, too.

    Have fun Kate!! Be in touch when (if?) you’re back on Sunday, I’d love to see you guys! DMM, you should consider Healdsburg! I’m trying to get my parents to a farm up there; horses, pigs and chickens. So fun!
