Oh, Carmel by the Sea… even on the coldest of days in the middle of summer, you are still just stunning…
The Paraiso Vineyard
Our friends, Grace & Casey, were such great hosts. They took us to this beautiful vineyard called Paraiso to start our “Week of Wine” off with a bang! The pictures do not do it justice, this place had some incredible views. Oh, and we made a new fur-friend, JD! As long as he wasn’t slobbering all over our wine glasses, or chewing on the cow hide rug, or biting people as the came through the door… he was quite adorable. ;)
**If you are in the Monterey area, we highly recommend having brunch at this truly unique spot called 1833. The chicken and waffles were killer!**
And I want to take a moment to give a much deserved “Thanks” to the entire Merritt family for being so welcoming and hospitable. Playing with all the kiddos and enjoying family time with you guys is always such a treat. We can’t wait to visit again! Here are some photos of their sweet family:
We love you guys!
