This past weekend, I received an unexpected surprise. My Mom decided to pop into our area and requested a visit. Since she was staying at one of my favorite places of all time, of course I had to rush to meet her.
She stayed at the Fairmont Mission, which is gorgeous. Built on a hot spring and dated back to early 1900's, this hotel is a perfect example of Nor-Cal Mission style.
The hotel also had wine barrel Adirondack chairs that I am completely obsessing over. I am going to see if Rob can be persuaded into giving them a try. They would look amazing in my yard.
We had so much fun at the hotel, even though only there for the day. And getting a few minutes exploring one of my favorite cities was a bonus.
We ate at the Cheese Factory, practically a landmark. Dating back to the 1930's this adorable deli had the best Panini that I have eaten in a while. We also hit up Harvest Home and I scored a double dose of bovine. Harvest Home is a must stop while exploring. It has such clever, country finds. Just the perfect dose of wine country rural. I had an amazing day and that says a lot considering we didn't even stop at a vineyard for a tasting.
Doesn't my cow painting look great?
And look, there is a small peek at my buffet that I need to unveil and also my gorgeous amethyst from the Gem Faire. Ignore the light, it still needs to be hung and then I can do the reveal. You'll love it, the room is coming along so nicely.
