weekend update

Home again. I left San Francisco on Saturday afternoon to head up to Sonoma County to visit one of my closest friends from when we lived up north, Allison, and her husband, Matt, and to meet their new bundle of joy. It was so much fun to see them and to meet their adorable son.
The Sonoma Valley is wine country. We went out for a drive in the valley, which is basically solid vineyards. Did you know that grape leaves change color like the leaves of trees do? The whole valley was covered in gorgeous foliage. We had lunch in the cute little town of Healdsburg, then I headed back to Oakland to catch my flight. It was so beautiful in the Sonoma Valley, and such a great way to spend a Sunday morning with friends.

He's adorable, even when he doesn't sleep all night and cries in the car for hours!
