Where Have I Been?

Where have I been?

I traveled to the Napa Valley Region with my hubby,

where we attended the Circle of Excellence trip that my hubby was awarded by his company.

We stayed at the incredible Calistoga Ranch, in Calistoga, California.

Since we were already in that beautiful area, we decided to stay a couple of extra days,

and travel south to Capitola-by-the-Sea

where we stayed at the beautiful Inn at Depot Hill.

A Quick Change Vignette And A Giveaway

My hubby rarely sits on the sofa and watches T.V. Once he sits, he is usually sleeping in less than a minute. However; one evening he wanted to see an event in the Olympics, so he sat next to me and stated, “I can’t see the T.V. . . . the orchid is too tall!’ […]
