MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: DECEMBER 26, 2016-JANUARY 1, 2017! (PART 1)
Our annual family trip up to San Luis Obispo after Christmas, hiking to a waterfall with the pups, seeing my mom’s high school self in a gallery show, and spending New Years weekend with my closest friends who came down from the Bay area.

Stopped at the House of Bread for some baguettes to take to our picnic later
And then we drove to Paso Robles, back into the candy shop

Daughters! We come up here every year with our families, it’s v. delightful.
Stopped at a winery and while everybody tasted I played with the winery dogs…Uva and Phoebe!

Couldn’t touch him, I’m allergic…but Lauren could!
Tasting over lunch…cheese…salami…sandwiches…chips…
Brief stop for a flight at Barrelhouse Brewing, Melia loves the Sunny Daze and wanted to come back for a six pack
Here’s what we tried…wasn’t super into any of them

Meanwhile my dad discovers at the last winery a bottle must have been packed with a crack cuz it leaked all over the trunk
