Visiting St. Francis Winery

St. Francis Winery

For today’s motivational Monday post I wanted to share our visit to St. Francis Winery and Vineyards in northern California. The day started with a long drive south to meet some dear old friends that were in town for an impromptu getaway. We met for breakfast and had such a good time. Our friends had planned to drive up north and tour a local winery and invited us to join them at St. Francis Winery and Vineyard.

From the moment we arrived, it was like something out of Italy. The location was spectacular and there was an old bell tower and statues of St. Francis himself. The property was stunning! Vast vineyards, lots of lavender and gardens as well as several shaded out-door patios to enjoy wine tastings and snacks.

We had such a nice visit with our friends, found that we are all that point in life where you re-evaluate and priorities change, family and friends are what is important.

Of course, I had to get a little Pinup Girl style in today. I opted for greens! I am wearing The Oblong Shop’s Puffer Fish novelty print circle skirt and although hard to see in tis pic, my Luxuriate fish brooch.


Motivation can come from several sources. You can be motivated to achieve many things weather it’s having a big job title, higher paying salary, becoming a better wife or husband, mother or father, son or daughter. Also, finding joy, serenity and contentment with the simpler things in life, that too can increase motivation to find ways to fully enjoy each and every day.
