Susan & John’s Wedding

The Carneros Inn was Susan and John’s destination of choice for celebrating their Napa Valley Style wedding, which is located in the beautiful Carneros winegrowing region.

This unique and luxurious resort even has it’s own post office on the premises!

The architecture and landscaping are beautifully designed and the up keep is meticulious. There is also an on site spa where you can relax and be pampered.

Prior to the wedding ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails while enjoying the view of the pool and surrouding vineyards.

Hugs and Kisses!

Inscribed above the fireplace is “IF YOU CAN DREAM”. It seemed so appropriate for a couple on their wedding day with the rest of their lives ahead of them.

Very best wishes to you!

Justin Update

Yesterday Justin turned 11 months old and continues to be a real joy. He is pretty relaxed “most of the time” but he does have a lot of puppy in him and makes us laugh on a daily basis. Last week he finished his “Good Manners II” class and is signed up to begin Novice I. Doesn’t it look like butter would melt in his mouth?

He really enjoys new adventures and going for walks. This was taken out at Alston Park in Napa. Those “sit-stays” he learned really come in handy for safety reasons and these types of photos!

Here is a new one. . .yesterday morning we had the windows open. Justin was out in the backyard and had just had one of his very frequent daily dips in our fountain. The next thing we know he is standing on his hind legs looking in the window at us. I guess we’ll have to put those screens back on for summer!

That’s all for now. Check back!

I just love this beautiful detail Mark did of the beads on one of the antique lamps at Churchill. There are so many incredible treasures to look at there.

This photo has a very old feel to it for me with a bit of a modern twist.

Their pleasant, quite expressions seem to mirror the formal wall portraits in the background that are from many years past.

Congratulations Amy & Jeff!
