Marriage isn’t easy, and time is a strange concept that both feels short and infinitely long all at the same time.
Not one to let a year go by without celebration, I planned an epic weekend getaway to celebrate *us.* I’m trying to play more with photography as a documentation exercise and to hone my skills. All of the images below are untouched in terms of post-processing, and are a few favorites from our little journey this weekend.
The red barn/vineyard photos are from our newest wine club commitment, Trattore. They offer an incredible guest house for their members for a reasonable price where you stay right on the active vineyard.
The African safari animals are from a place called Safari West – a really cool conservation covering 400 acres of land in the heart of Sonoma. They managed to barely escape the fires that ravaged this area so brutally last fall – one shot of the giraffes looking into the distance capture just how close they came to devastation.
The last set are from a winery called The Donum Estate – they have an incredible collection of sculptures that drew me to their vineyard…we tasted a multitude of pinot noirs while overlooking “The Mikaido Tree.” One of the most unique (and…expensive) vineyard tastings I’ve ever experienced.
To my dearest Scott – happy six years. Here’s to another six…and another six after that. We might be getting too far along to drink as many bottles as years married to celebrate, but I think we came close this weekend!
