Well Jeff & I have been very busy blogging all of our wonderful portrait sessions lately, but we promised to share with you our travels as well. You know, something to get to know the real us, how we interact with each other and what we like to do. Well, here are two of our favorite things in this blog, travel & wine.
We decided to take last weekend off and just go spend some time with each other. We took a road trip up the 101 north to Solvang and the surrounding wine country. We spent the weekend wine tasting, talking to people, and taking pictures. If you are ever up in the Solvang area, check out The Wine Valley Inn and Cottages, that is where we stayed, our cottage was huge with a fire place included ( I miss having a fireplace at home). This is just one of the boutique hotels owned by Broughton Hospitality which are great places to stay!
Hope you enjoy the photos of our wine country adventure, there are even a few of us!
We started on the trail for Wine Friday afternoon…where do we start???

We stopped at Firestone Winery on our way home on Sunday…we ended up becoming Wine Club members there!
Me in the vines again…drinking wine…you just can’t keep me away!
We were just up there last weekend- we shot a wedding at this place called ‘Lavender Fields’. Pretty neat place, and as the name suggests they grow the stuff there. Hopefully we’ll be able to head up at some point and actually have time to enjoy it!
Thank you for sharing the pics, you do wonderful work! I look forward to more. Maybe a book of pics from this area is a good call, I have not found one yet and it would be wonderful to have. Even one of all the dogs on the vineyards. Cheers to you both!

I absolutely love the first image (with the signpost)…it conjures up Robert Frost poems of roads less traveled. I love Solvang and the surrounding area; I have been going there since I was a child. Such a beautiful place to get away to. Clogs and abelskevers and grape vines, oh my!
Such adventures you guys have…….good for you! Love you!
these are gorgeous! what a fun trip.
