my moments: holiday season

The last few months of the year always hold a magical place in my heart, the feeling of the upcoming Christmas holidays, special time spent with friends, family and loved ones that you don't always see during the rest of the year, as well as the little indulgences that only come during this highly decorated season- not to mention a little gift giving or gift getting. 

Here are some of the moments I wanted to share that stood out to me last month, hope you enjoy and that you had a lovely holiday season as well!

-Annual winter pilgrimage to our favorite wineries in Sonoma County.
-Bringing out the Christmas coat- that only seems to come out this time of year.
-Special barrel tasting at Rodney Strong.
-A new Christmas tradition-bûche de Noël (traditional French Christmas dessert)- small but very rich!

P.S. My gift to you...a pretty sweet ShopSeptember giveaway, here!

  4. Annual pilgrimage to wineries?? That has to be the best idea ever - a tradition to drink good wines! Like your coat with leather sleeves too.;)

  5. I agree with Peet! An annual pilgrimage to wineries sounds sensational.
    And it seems that you had a good time! Thanks for sharing all of your lovely photos :)
    Also, hope your holiday was amazing!
