Queued up, waiting to get into the quarry every day from 6 am to 6 pm; each load contains a bit of santa rosa destroyed in the fires. 4 months on and nearly 60 percent of sonoma has been cleaned up, but the presence of the trucks serves as a daily reminder of our tragic october. #iheartsonoma#sonomastrong#recovery#tubbsfire#californiafires
My doc said i was deficient in vitamin d, so i figured getting up from my desk a couple times a day to go on at least a 10 minute walk cannot hurt! definitely helps the back and the mind too. and the views don’t hurt either.
I’ve been struck repeatedly during my @gsnorcal girl scouts training with our earnest mission to empower young girls into self-motivated leaders. to help girls change the world and make our communities better places. this week was our first meeting and we took our first hike to help sugarloaf @sugarloafpark reopen after our fire. 💚 i am so grateful already to lead troop kenwood with annalee @themysticandthemonk and lisa @lisascheftner. 💚 now more than ever, i feel thankful for #sonoma#women and our #daughters and for my #mom who gave me the love for girl scouts @girlscouts when she led our troop all those years ago! #sonomastrong#girlpower#letsdothis
Cheers to another #winewednesday! while cabernet sauvignon is the most-planted grape in knights valley ava, there are also some superb white wines grown here. @winespectator's james laube gave @knightsbridgewinery 2015 chardonnay a score of 94-points. he calls it "rich and creamy, with smoky oak framing the fig, melon, apricot and pear flavors. this is unified by a seamless texture that echoes butterscotch and roasted marshmallow notes."
extra impressive: the vineyards at knights bridge have been certified sustainable since 2011!
I just registered for the 5k run to rebuild wine country which is benefitting habitat for humanity of sonoma county to provide aid to north bay fire victims in sonoma, napa, mendocino, lake and solano counties! because apparently signing up for runs, despite how bad i am at running, is my new thing! if you feel so inclined, you can make a donation to my pledge page to help me raise money to rebuild my community. i'll add the link to my profile. or, you can sign up to run the race too - in person or as a virtual runner out of town wherever you are! let's do this! #sonomastrong 💪🏼🌼🍇
