Wine Wednesday!

My friend surprised me with an awesome birthday present - a trip to Temecula wine country! My hometown isn't far from Temecula, yet I've only been wine tasting there once so I am super excited. Last time I went I had a blast! In addition to Temecula, I've only been tasting in Paso Robles and Sonoma, both of which were amazing, beautiful trips. Needless to say I am stoked to get ma drink on!

We planning to go early September, then back again in late November when the vineyards are a beautiful orange. It'll be the closet thing to a fall we get down here in Southern California. Until then, here are some pics to hold me over.

What are you pinning this week? Head over to The Vintage Apple and link up with Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday and share! You can follow my boards here, and I'll follow yours back :)


My What the Hell Wednesday portion of this post is time...why must it take so long for exciting trips/plans/moments to happen? I can be a bit impatient I guess, but fa real? Can September hurry up and get here already? Then after that time can slow down again.

What's on your mind? Let that rant out by joining the blog hop hosted by Christianna of The Girl With the Blue Bow. You'll feel better after you get it off your chest ;)
