April Flowers

2014 April Garden FlowersSpring has finally sprung! Enjoy this beautiful weather we are having!

I’m the regatta director for the 20th Annual Covered Bridge Regatta and so my weekend will be filled with all-things-rowing. Today the fun begins as we set get set up for the arrival of 36 teams across California, Oregon and Washington. Oh wait, two boat trailers arrived last night! And so it begins…….

Happy quilting!

Wine Trip

Wine Trip 2014

Six heads are better than one….?

This trip was all about girlfriends and wine and new friends! On my first-ever wine tour where we were driven from winery to winery, I had the most fabulous time. I will definitely do it again. And I will sign up with Cork & Barrel Wine Tours again for sure. Erik and Kimberly were amazing hosts and drivers and made us feel pampered every step of the way. Why did I wait so long to do this? Perhaps, like all things in life, the time has to be right to appreciate it. Well, the time was definitely right!

For a limited time, Cork & Barrel are having a special BOGO (buy one get one free!) so If I were you, I would run, not walk, to your phone or email and contact them about a tour with your friends (and no, I don’t get any kickbacks from this!). Their van holds up to 8 people, but we had 7 and managed to fill up seat #8 with wine! Who knew?
