Mondays are always a little harder during the summer, but man are they even harder when returning from this!

If you’re keeping track, yes, this is my second wedding this summer where I’ve had to spend an extended weekend in wine country. This time, in Napa (last time was Sonoma!). Which, meant that I also got to spend a little time in one of my favorite cities – San Francisco.

A long late lunch with miss Caitlin (of Sacramento Street) at Piccino and a bit of sightseeing around the bay was the perfect way to kick off the weekend…

We spent all day on Friday wine-tasting, but Saturday may have been my favorite. We settled in on the porch at Frog’s Leap, and enjoyed a leisurely few hours of tasting, nibbling, and catching up with good friends.

It reminded me how rare it is to get a group of bloggers together for a weekend that doesn’t involve work! Instead, we were there to celebrate the nuptials of one miss Crystal Gentilello! And what a stunning wedding it was…

A huge congrats to the beautiful couple. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen two people more in love! And thank you for giving us all the excuse for a long weekend together. It was the perfect little getaway!

Sidenote – does anyone carry real cameras with them anymore? I captured the entire weekend with my iphone, and every one of these photos were pilfered from my instagram. It was so fun to wake up Sunday morning and scroll through my feed to see all the photos from the wedding!
