spent the day in sonoma. another good friend is getting married in august at this private estate in sonoma. it is a family compound that has been in the same family since the mid 1800's and my friend happens to be friends with the generous owners. its going to be a pool party....and talk about a pool (see photo above).
it was a day of measuring tables and benches, crafting ideas and plotting out the decor plan. i don't do weddings, but this summer happens to be another one of those summers for weddings and we all happen to be in the crafty industry and would much rather be practical than wasteful. it must be our 30's (and some of us 40's) sensibility.
after a day like this we are feeling like we need to revisit real estate in sonoma again. the ups and downs of buying a home. it just happens to be a bit more tricky when looking at listing prices :o).
last note: we started the day having brunch at the fremont diner in sonoma. i had the buttermilk waffles with fried chicken and maple syrup. oh....holy cow it was good.
