Seven years ago today, we threw caution to the wind and were married. We had no money, were still in school and had big dreams of what might lie ahead. It's been a long road, and we aren't in a very different position than we were then, but we are still as much in love as were were that day. Everyone thought we were crazy (and they still might!) but we are happy to have proved them wrong (or at least having learned to ignore them and have fun anyway!)
Yesterday we drove to Healdsburg in the famous "Wine Country" and enjoyed some wine tasting, tapas and time together away from the piles of bills, phone calls and stress of our daily reality. The weather was beautiful, and we had a great day. It was the longest we have ever left Scarlett, and she was fine (though I think my sister and mom were pretty wiped out!) We're so lucky to live so close to such great places to visit - wine tasting is great because it feels fancy, but at many wineries, it's free! We did a whole day out with 3 wineries and a delicious lunch, a bottle of one of the wines we liked most and some other treats for under $100.
It was a great recharge for the upcoming week, where Scarlett gets her new hearing aids, we continue the fight for social services and maybe finally get our phone fixed!
