It's Spring! Kind of...

Well the official first day of spring has come and gone. Sadly, the only thing that really lets me know it's here is that I've now mowed the lawn three times! Other than still feels like a dreary Seattle winter around these parts.

Napa Valley Vacation - Day 6

Today was an incredibly fun and full day! We started our day in Napa and are now getting ready for bed in Nevada City, CA. And the best part of it all...the temperature is MUCH cooler up here! (This blog was typed on 3/18...but because of no internet service it is being posted on 3/19)

Napa Valley Vacation - Day 5

Well the title of the blog changed from conference to vacation...that's was the first day of our vacation! And we started it off the right way...we slept in...until 8. HAHA. Isn't that sad when sleeping in is either 7 or 8 AM! Well, it truly was decadent!

Napa Valley Conference - Day 4

Today was the final day of the Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives conference in the beautiful Napa Valley. While the days were extremely long, and some of the talks rather boring (for me personally), I'd say all in all it was a fantastic conference and the highlight of it all was definitely today.

Napa Valley Conference - Day 3

It was another gorgeous day here in the Napa Valley. I truly do feel blessed to have the life that I do, and the opportunity to travel to the places that we do. We've really enjoyed our time here so far...but that being said...the days have been very long and some of the lectures have been a bit dry.

Napa Valley Conference - Day 2

I honestly have no idea how my eyes are still open right now. It seems as if we've been here in Napa for about a week and a's hard to believe we just flew in yesterday! Today was a long day with the conference going from 7 AM until 5 PM.

Napa Valley Conference - Day 1

I feel like I'm sitting in an Italian villa drinking my white wine...but I'm really in Napa Valley in a cute hotel called Villagio. Michael and I are here for a four day conference (that I was dragged to against my will) called Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives which is being held at The Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, CA.

What Inspires and Motivates You?

I've been rather absent from my blog this month, and as always, there is no good excuse for it. Over the past few weeks I've had several blog ideas rolling through my head, but never actually sat down to write. That was until the other night when my phone buzzed telling me that I had a new e-mail waiting for me.

Home in Honolulu...Day 11.

I can't believe that today is already the end of our vacation. Like I said yesterday, it seems like we just flew in...but in the same breath it's like we'd been on island for months.

Home in Honolulu...Day 10.

It's hard to believe that today was our final full day here in Honolulu. It seems like yesterday that we landed...but at the same time it seems like we've been here for months.

Home in Honolulu...Day 9.

After spending the last two days lounging around, we decided that we should take advantage of the day and get out and about. We originally planned to go to Makapu'u to look for whales...but after seeing the weather we changed our plans.
