We just got home from a really fantastic weekend in Sonoma for Barrel Tasting. We rented a gorgeous house in Healdsburg with four other friends and enjoyed really tasty food and wine all weekend long, in addition to highly interesting conversation and funny moments. I am ending the weekend feeling really lucky to lead this life.

The rest of the pictures here.

Also, we had a blast of a time last weekend at Nav’s wedding with the ECP family. Those pictures are here. There’s also a video of how much fun we had at the reception here. A few of my favorites:

And finally, the little porch garden is growing! At a benefit for Nigel of Eatwell Farm last week, I won a collection of container garden supplies in the silent auction and now have not only potatoes but carrots, cat grass (who knows how that will go over with Barnum and Bailey – we’ll see), rosemary, and basil growing. Hooray for gardening in an apartment!
