12 Melbourne in the US...?

Being in San Francisco felt just like coming home. Clear blue skies and sunshine, smiling, friendly people, delicious coffee from the markets and walks along the Bay. It was like our Melbourne life, just on the other side of the world. The pace was a little slower, the lifestyle a little more relaxed than here in NYC… 

… if we stay in the US for more than another two years, I can feel a move out West coming on. More space, more temperate weather and definitely more fabulous coffee!

14 Napa Valley

Every time I remember our Napa Valley trip two weeks ago, I smile. The days were so sunny and warm we could relax by the pool. As the cool evening air descended, the hot tub would beckon, and we'd settle in with a glass of red wine and a contented sigh to watch the colors in the sky slowly deepen into dusk and then night. 

I spent plenty of time warming my feet by the fire in our cottage, we lingered for a long time over delicious meals, laughed till we cried as we exchanged video messages with my sister and her fiancé and slowly wound down from a crazy start to the year.

I've missed my creative outlet here, and hope life settles into a somewhat slower rhythm for the next few months so I can start taking more photos and reliving my getaways with you.

ps. Photos from early morning and evening around The Carneros Inn... days were spent relaxing, and being far too lazy to lift a camera!
