Happy Sunday everyone! We have had uncommonly cool weather so far this holiday weekend. We are enjoying Summer and our family in spite of the chilly weather. Today I am joining Annie and Mary Ann for our Sunday favorites. Let’s talk about Five Fun Distractions you don’t Want to Miss
SONOMA WINERIES WITH BEAUTIFUL GARDENS
Now that we have moved further south, we don’t travel to the Sonoma wine country very often. We love the area. It’s very laid back much like this area. There are so many fabulous wineries in beautiful settings. I enjoyed this recent article in Sonoma Magazine featuring 15 Great Wineries with Beautiful Gardens.
AARP WHAT YOUR EYE COLOR MAY SAY ABOUT YOUR HEALTH
DARIUS’ NO FAIL FAVORITE WEEKNIGHT PASTA FROM FOOD AND WINE
My son-in-law Darius is a fabulous cook (as is my daughter). This simple Food and Wine Recipe for Pasta with Sausage Basil and Mustard is their week night go to recipe.
OUTFIT OF THE WEEK
I have to be honest this crazy interesting bag from Zara was my inspiration. It has a thick crossbody strap that is also included. Anything militaty inspired seems good this year, so this bag was my stopping off point. I love a great poncho and this one from Tuckernuck is highly rated. I have been coveting the Birdies camo loafers forever. I also love Machete accessories.

MILIEU MAGAZINE TURNS 10
Talented Houston designer Pamela Pierce decided ten years ago to go out on a limb (when many shelter magazines were going belly up) and found the wonderful magazine Milieu. I am sure many thought she had lost her marbles. Guess what, the lovely Milieu is still going strong. This month they are featuring the charming bungalow of one of my favorite designers Betsy Brown, photographed by @haris.kenjar You can catch up on back issues of Milieu Magazine on Amazon here. You can also ubscribe to Milieu Magazine here. I have been a subscriber since its inception.
That’s it from my desk this week. Thank you so much for reading Five Fun Distractions you don’t Want to Miss. I hope you are enjoying time with your family and friends on this holiday weekend. You might also enjoy some of my former Sunday favorites here. Now let’s pop over and visit Annie and Mary Ann for their Sunday favorites.
