Rainy Day Wine Tasting – What to Wear

This past weekend, we attended the annual Wine Road - Northern Sonoma County Barrel Tasting. Much to our dismay, northern California was hit with yet another round of storms, so most of the weekend was rainy and cloudy.

A Kenwood Inn and Spa New Year’s Weekend

Cold Weather Clothing Must Haves

                              If you suffer from arthritis or fibromyalgia, you know that cold weather is not your friend. Cold weather worsens the pain and can make the winter months not so enjoyable. And severe cold weather is even worse as I experience [...]

Sainte-Chapelle – A Beautiful Display of Color and Light

                              Sainte-Chapelle is an intimate chapel on the IÎe de la Cité in Paris known for its magnificent stained glass windows from the 13th century. I have been fortunate to have been able to visit this chapel twice and if I [...]

A Delightful Day in Montmartre

                      On a recent trip to Paris, we spent some time wandering through the delightful Montmartre area. We had visited Paris a few years ago and did not have the time to make it up to this area. A dear friend of ours, who is [...]
