2. On Saturday and in honor of a good friend's birthday, I stomped grapes for the first time at the Messina Hof Winery's Harvest Festival. Walking around in a basin full of food-turned-drink felt a little funny on the feet, but I had wanted to grape stomp for years and enjoyed the experience.
After stomping, we settled at the wine bar to share a bottle or two of wine and a few appetizers. Shortly after we sat down we were greeted by none other than Paul Bonarrigo, the founder of Messina Hof Winery!
4. These two bicker - and even fight - a lot, but deep down they really do love each other.
5. Happiness Highlights:
|I DO love carbs! And Rebecca, whose birthday we were celebrating!|
|This little guy's having a rough week, what with all the changes going |
down. Luckily he found comfort nestled in with Hallie's high tops.
|The playroom is almost completely empty and ready for it's makeover! |
I expect the process to take at least a month given our busy schedules,
but I hope to have "after" pics to share by the end of September!
|On a related note, I think I FINALLY tracked down |
the color of the walls in the playroom. (The previous
owners didn't leave the name or a can of the paint
behind.) It's taken me FIVE years!
Happy Friday, Chasing Roots!
