After an extremely lazy day 1 of 2016 (I mean LAZY!) I had to be out an about the next day. I can only sit on my painfully comfortable couch for so long…
Since we were long overdue with our wine pickup, we decided to make a day of it – and it twas lovely!
Breakfast in Petaluma
Tea Room Cafe (A MUST!!) 316 Western Ave, Petaluma, CA 94952
You may have to wait in line, but it’s worth it! We showed up around 11:00am on a Saturday and had no trouble finding a table. We had the croissant breakfast sandwich and the chorizo scramble, with a chai latte and coffee. Everything was delicious. Don’t forgot to stop at the darling little shop next door (got this cute red beanie there)!
Wine tasting and relaxing
Paradise Ridge Winery 4545 Thomas Lake Harris Dr, Santa Rosa, CA 95403
We became members here… so you know it’s good! Love love love this place. The grounds are gorgeous – they have TONS of artwork/sculptures all throughout. The tasting room is super cozy and the view is lovely. This was the first place that I loved all the wines – red and white! Definitely check this out.
Cruise down HWY 12 and enjoy the scenery between spots!!
Sipping tea and strolling
Sonoma Plaza 453 1st St E, Sonoma, CA 95476
There are so many great shops here! From wine shops, to estate jewelry, from consignment boutiques to “general stores”. A must stop if you’re in the area. The plaza encompasses a beautiful park, and has plenty of delicious restaurants to choose from!
Basque Boulangerie 460 First Street East, Sonoma, CA 95476
We stopped here for a mocha, hot tea and chocolate covered macaroon. YUM!
A truly lovely way to start out the new year!
