Last week I had a birthday. Not a big birthday, or a life changing kind of birthday… just a one-year-older kind of thing. My actual birthday included some somewhat mundane thrills, like picking up some finally framed work for the office and taking a day off from work. The more exciting birthday surprises came with dinner at Commonwealth, and a weekend trip to Healdsburg, where we encountered throngs of people, but also a quiet garden at Preston Vineyards where Intern and I shared a picnic, a bottle of wine, and some amazingly warm January sun. We learned (too late) that we should check the web to find out if there any massive wine festivals happening when we want a quiet afternoon to ourselves without a bunch of drunk fools. We also learned that Preston Vineyards is very calm and quiet, even with a bunch of drunk fools filtering in and out of the tasting room.
