Pups in the Snow

First sign of snow on our drive up!

First sign of snow on our drive up!

Last weekend, hubby and I got to take our first vacation as a married couple! It was also our first time getting away with the dogs in 4 years and they were such good pups.  


Our drive up could not have been more picturesque, complete with coffee and our favorite podcasts. Milo didn’t even throw up!

The area was supposed to be in for an “atmospheric river” and it started rain/snowing the day after we arrived. Luckily, there was already some snow (about three feet) on the ground for the dogs to explore! Milo is more of a bulldozer anyway, and his tactic was to just lay down and swim through while James was much more concerned with not falling in the holes I made in the snow.


The cabin we stayed in was so tiny and cute and perfect. We mostly just lazed around, went for walks, had some amazing naps and enjoyed the fireplace. We had some snowy hikes planned for the boys but the warm rain could make things icy slippery and I didn’t want to risk it. Also, we’re lazy.

Husband made filet and scallops one night and they were TO. DIE. FOR. He doesn’t cook much, but when he does he always make it amazing. See below.

Our trip was also, ashamedly, our first time testing out the Subie’s fabulous AWD. Besides making out trip home in the super-storm, she looked mighty pretty in the snow-y driveway.

I’m just glad everything worked out and we got to get away before hubby’s finals and bar prep, because his life is about to get fun. Cheers hub!

I Vote October for Month of the Year

The other weekend my husband and I and our friends attended a harvest party for a winery that’s owned by some of my husband’s relatives. Their place is gorgeous, their wine is always delicious and they are some of the nicest people I've ever met. I’ve posted pictures of their place before from a previous visit and I’m still so in awe of the property. Their kitchen window looks down a hill over a horse paddock. The home itself is a dream with the cutest wrap around porch and gorgeous vaulted ceilings when you walk in. They’ve created the perfect outdoor entertaining space as well. Like I said, I haven't met more deserving people. I've found that's most successful people, though!
