After waking up bright and entirely too early, I took my time getting ready and headed over to Ram’s Gate Winery to meet up with the wedding crew for a tasting. And as soon as everyone walked up, it was like no time had passed. There were hugs all around and, from that point forward, we’d look at each other through 20-year old eyes.
We spent most of our time at Ram’s Gate introducing ourselves to Ryan and Jen’s family, all the while taking in the beyond beautiful scenery. And afterwards, our tipsy selves headed outside to
do ballet walk amongst the grapes and ooh and ahh.
From there, I sort of unknowingly signed up for a mini adventure to Napa. The Shea’s were able to convince the folks at Far Niente to add me to their group through the use of accents, role playing, and overall trickery. Their creativity paid off because this tour was one of the most entertainingly wonderful touristy things I’ve ever experienced.
And before we knew it, the only things we’d consumed since breakfast were wine and cheese. It could have been a problem, but my mom swooped me up on the way to our dinner reservations and everything was A-Ok!
