Because it has been so COLD and GRAY this week in Minnesota, my thoughts have been returning to our glorious summer vacation in beautiful Sonoma, California. Aaaahhh, the cool misty mornings that became sunny perfect afternoons and then on to crisp clear evenings with a zillion stars. The ability to bike easily from one end of town to the other. The lavender lined sidewalks, hydrangeas, and grapevines. The gorgeous local wineries, restaurants, and farmers market...heavenly dream! Aaaahh, SONOMA! My talented son took these photos during one of our outdoor dinners.
