Thoughts of Sonoma
A recent visit to Sonoma reminded me of this picnic memory. Sadly, at this moment, wildfires are destroying homes and habitats in Sonoma and Napa.
I remember little about this wine and food gathering, but the photo is peaceful. I love the lake and hazy hills, the wine bottles and smiles. I hope this very spot was spared.
Picnic on the Rocks
A few weeks ago, we hiked on a beautiful fall day in Squaw Valley. The scenery was spectacular and the picnic sandwiches were extra delicious.
The food and hike was an absolute treat! But, the company was the best part! Nothing like hiking and picnicking with 2 little mountain goat, great-nephews!
Mom's Picnic List
In honor of my mother on the first Mother's Day since she has passed, I dedicate a new list... Mom's Picnic List!
Mom loved picnics and she raised her kids to appreciate the simple pleasures of food, family and friends in the great out of doors.
I will spend a year reflecting on as many past picnics as I can remember. But, I'll also
appreciate the here and now by creating new picnic experiences. My goal is to share at least 60 picnic memories, since that's how many years Mom was a mom!
Let the picnics begin!
