We left SLO on October 10 and made our way up to the Napa Valley to visit Les' family and have a mini-vacation. We stayed at the Mt. View hotel for three nights and then spent one night at the Hotel D'Amici, both in Calistoga. By my standard of a nice hotel (i.e. nice 100% cotton sheets and fluffy big towels) both hotels were LOVELY. We even got to take advantage of a couple of spa treatments while we were there.
We left the Napa Valley on October 15 and headed to Roseville to see a couple of our best friends. We had a great time, even though it was too short. While in Roseville we were also able to sneak in a few hours with my cousins that took the time to drive down from Placerville. It was so good to see them again and reconnect!
I feel blessed to have this time with my friends and family. I wouldn't trade it for the world!
