Love & Marriage

A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for any given year. – Paul Sweeney

Paul Sweeney’s quote represents a panoply of what marriage truly is. As today begins our fourth year of marriage we’d like to allot this winesday’s post to rouse the memories of wine tasting in Napa on our honeymoon. We took a month off to drive around the country and spent time in places such as; Mackinac Island Michigan, New York City, Sugar Grove West Virginia in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains, Dubuque Iowa, Vail Colorado, Salt Lake City Utah, Carmel, Big Sur and Napa Valley in California. We were much too busy having fun to take many pictures but here are a few snapshots I found from our few days of 4th of July fun sipping wine in Calistoga… and a few from our wedding day for sentiment.

A few social media bursts from the trip: Circa July 3-6, 2011

Sunbathing in the passengers seat next to my husband. Listening to Stacey Kent serenade a French melody whilst reading Lunch in Paris A Love Story with Recipes… Not too shabby for Katie! Napa here we come.

Just arrived at the Calistoga Inn, dancing, drinking and fun in the sun.

Dinner at Cindy Pawlcyn’s (Top Chef:Masters) Mustards Grill with Jacob Bonzer, had the Crab Cakes and Pork Chop, WOWo I understand why she’s famous. I’ve eaten at Fog City Diner as well so I need to eat at Backstreet Kitchen and Go Fish to “collect all 4!” Napa Valley never disappoints!

Beuna Vista winery, need I say more.

Sunny Sunday Brunch. I love this restaurants upscale twist on traditional American food! I wish I was that creative. — with Jacob Bonzer at Market American Restaurant

A large glass of wine at Chateau Montelena, Bottle Shock style. The only thing missing is Chris Pine…

Day 2 in Napa Valley, shopping, wine tastings, independence fair! Jacob Bonzer can I move here today? I’ll drive home and bring up our puppies and clothes, who needs furniture;)
