Wine Tour

Wine Tour
Ok, so Saturday morning we woke up early to get ready and make some breakfast at my house. Little did I know the work was already done for me! My friends showed up with dozens of bagels in hand. They also brought Champagne, Orange Juice, and plenty of snacks for the limo. Things like Peeps were involved. I packed some Vitamin Water and Cheez-its for the ride and we were good to go. 
We took off promptly at 10:30am. Our limo drivers name was Sixto. This is no joke. 6-toe. We didn't find out his name until lunch. The only reason we knew was because his name was written on our lunch bag.
The day took us from vineyard to vineyard. At the second one we ate some lunch outside. The weather was gorgeous! And my friend brought a cake for me! The big -25-. Woah. So nice of her. I blew out the candles and everything. I think it became a legit birthday party when the cake got involved. We actually got to meet up with another group of friends at the 3rd vineyard, completely by coincidence. I guess it was a good weekend for wine drinking. Then onto the 4th where we were all settling into our day full of wine, fun, laughter, and quality time with top notch friends. 
Please note: Highly Recommended [It's an explosion in your mouth]

I went with a little variation of this outfit. Switched out the belt for the vintage scarf, lost the hair accessory, went plain on the cardigan and pink on the necklace. I like how it came together in the end though. Very much representative of me. This dress is actually a lot more blue in person. I wasn't expecting that when I ordered it from Modcloth, but it was a pleasant surprise. I was happy with the blue-ish, pink, green combination. All colors I like and all colors that are fitting of spring. Not to mention that I can't get enough of these shoes. The heel is not too high, so I was able to wear them all day. And the ankle strap really holds me in there. 
I had an amazing time this weekend. There's something so comforting about being surrounding by some of your best friends, and knowing that they are truly people who care about you. Since my friends don't exactly know about this blog yet -woops- I'm not going to use any of the pictures with them, because I'd want to ask them first, and I can't ask if they don't know about it. For the time being I'm ok with not telling them. I think it'll have to happen naturally, I don't want to force it.

We got back to the south fork around 6:30pm. Great time to catch the sunset, after 8 hours of wine tasting, ha. Kev and I snuck away just as the sun was setting to take some pictures.
These are reasons I love this place:

I love that Kev took these pictures. It was a great weekend and now I'm 25. What a way to close out all the celebrating.

25 was such a great year for me... somehow, everything just fell into place.

Wine country looks scrumptious and your dress fits the occasion perfect :)

Those shoes are major my dear. And I want to steal your outfit, but I won't since it was your birthday and all.
