Being in quarantine since March 16 has been so many things and with so many feelings. My hubby Gary and I are some of the very fortunate ones that continue to remain employed and working from home. We try to see the positive of sheltering at home and are grateful everyday to have the comforts we have. It is sad not to see family and friends but we are all healthy and that is what matters most.
I love a good plaid and it isn’t always easy to find them in non-Christmas colors. Well, Sourpuss Clothing has a fantastic selection of everyday plaids and they are available in dresses and skirts and I couldn’t be more excited to share with you this epic photo shoot by my sweet hubby Gary Greco and the incredible mid-century modern location!!
My hubby Gary and I spent a fun filled afternoon at the Museum of Ice Cream in San Francisco this weekend. I wore my new Nike Air Max 270 React Light Orewood Brown/Sail/Khaki/Hyper Crimson. These are actually my very first pair of Nike Air Max 270 React sneakers that my hubby gifted me.
Living in gorgeous wine country California we are fortunate to have world-class wineries so close by and today we visited the exquisite Ledson Winery in the heart of Sonoma Valley wine country on HWY 12. The drive was beautiful; it was sunny and cool having just sprinkled in the morning. The vineyards are essentially bare sticks this time of year but still gorgeous to take in and it was a beautiful drive.
You can’t miss the Ledson Winery also known as The Castle!! It is a 16,000 sqft Gothic French-Normandy style winery and tasting room. The Castle is absolutely stunning!! Ample parking is provided and the grounds are exquisite with manicured lawns, trees, and florals. Restrooms are easily accessible and are also in the style of The Castle in a separate building right by the parking lot making it very convenient for those who drove a long distance. A gorgeous fountain is a focal point in the front and imagining what springtime is like here when the roses and flowers are blooming, a sweet smell in the air and the vineyards are lush with grapes is surely a dream. We will certainly be back in the Spring and will post photos for you all.
I am so excited to tell you about our stay at a San Francisco boutique hotel called The Hotel Zephyr. We specifically chose this hotel for its location and theme; nautical and located right in the heart of San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf with amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. The guest rooms have porthole windows and “SOS” bedding. Anything novelty or kitsch and we are there!
The Hotel Zephyr in San Francisco is a family friendly motel with over 300 rooms and decorated in a nautical theme with a fabulous courtyard filled with seating areas, multiple fire pits, retro games that are life-size like Connect Four and Jenga. There is also a vintage 1950s Shasta trailer serving up snacks and beverages and then there is an amazing game room filled with comfortable seating, ping-pong tables, pool, and table shuffleboard. So much to do right there at the hotel!! The lobby is so cool with shipping container wall panels, porthole windows and seating, rope buoy lighting, an incredible wall mural of Popeye the Sailor Man and lots of spots to plugin and sit on comfortable sofas and chairs. There is also a retro style photo booth.
Have a blast while making memories of your trip to San Francisco at the Museum of 3D Illusions. Located in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf right next to Pier 39 is the Museum of 3D Illusions where hand painted 3D wall murals feature several iconic San Francisco landmarks and hot-spots along with a variety of additional murals that await your poses. Get ready for an incredible experience!!
