This has been a trying time of late, and I am super busy with work (everyone wants everything done by Christmas!) I have been posting on Instagram, but have done little else. My dad fell right before Thanksgiving (he will be 95 next week) and was in the hospital for 5 days. He is now in Rehab 30 minutes South of my home. Between dementia and his age, I think we are going to be looking at a skilled facility. I know he would never want to live this way but what do you do when the mind goes before the body. He is not enjoying life at this point so it is very difficult. While Jenna and Darius were here we took a little time played tourist at home. We took a trip up the River Road Wine Trail and ended at the facility where my dad is.
We live right across the highway from the famed Santa Lucia Highlands (home to wonderful Pinot Noirs). Sometimes you need to take the time to appreciate the beauty in your own backyard. Below is a shot taken from the car of the beautiful property of the owner’s of the wonderful Roar Wines.
We stopped at our favorite River Road Winery Wrath and enjoyed the views with a glass of wine.
The day was absolutely balmy. I wore the Bristol Shirt from Comfy USA for Artful Home. Comfy happens to be one of my favorite brands. Their tunics are always a hit with me. The fabrics are crisp and need very little ironing. They are great for travel as well. The stripe placement creates a really flattering line on this particular tunic. As an extra incentive, Artful Home is having a free shipping event from December 10-15!!
I am wearing an XS. My daughter Jenna snapped these pics before we left. Those of you who are regulars here know how much I love modeling!
Please follow me on Instagram if you want to see what I am up to. Next week I will be joining the 12 days of Christmas Tour, sharing my scaled-down Christmas decor at my home on the 12th.
