My family and I spent a few days in San Francisco after my graduation (this was a while ago!), and we were thrilled to visit a quaint little town in the heart of the world’s third largest wine country (Sonoma/Napa Valley). We stopped in Sonoma for lunch and then continued the journey to the other wineries. I was enthralled by the town’s vintage charm -wooden white pillars and lamp posts adorned with Christmas heaths among pastel clapboard buildings.
The afternoon was cloudy with a burst of sunlight. Traffic was minimal. Women pushed strollers as they window-shopped. Old friends laughed over fresh coffee in the warm interiors of cafes.Tourists paused outside trinket stores to snap pictures (that’s me).
