Every spring, John and I head out west to have a passionate love affair with San Francisco behind New York City’s back. It never fails to shake out winter’s cobwebs, and I come home feeling so happy and relaxed. I truly love California. John left on Sunday for Santa Clara, where he was speaking at a conference – the impetus for our trip each year – and this morning I am flying out to meet him in San Francisco.

This trip I’m especially excited about getting to spend a little time in Napa while we’re out west. John and I have wanted to visit some of the wineries there for a long time, so we’re taking the ferry to Vallejo on Saturday to see my favorite west coaster, and driving up to Napa with Allison and her husband for a day of pizza eating and wine tasting.

The last few months have been crazy, in every possible way, so I’m really looking forward to relaxing in the sunshine and getting to spend time with John without computers sitting in front of us. I hope you have a fabulous weekend, and I’ll see you back here on Tuesday after I return!
