For Wine Lovers!

As wine lovers, we find that living in Northern California has truly enhanced our love affair with wines. Being so close to the wine country, we are able to escape the city life on a moment’s notice.

This weekend, we will have the opportunity to embrace the beauty, sample the wines and enjoy the warm hospitality from the Wine Road Barrel Tasting. It’s truly our chance to get to pick winemaker’s brains and explore Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys.

Our previous wine tasting experience and hoping to recreate!

Fresh Organic Produce in San Mateo

We enjoy organic produce when every we can get our hands on, and Crystal Springs Produce in San Mateo is truly one of the best places that we’ve visited!

 Most of the fruits and veggies are grown locally and there is a large selection of organics as well. In addition, there is a variety of cheeses, fresh dairy, bread, gourmet nuts and a variety of other healthy alternatives.

The best part is when we check out, the prices are exceptionally reasonable and we don’t feel like a whole paycheck was spent on organic products!!

Visit their website and there is a 15% coupon off entire purchase!!

Hope to see some of you out there!
