We celebrated our anniversary at Treehouse Vineyards.

Bryan had rented us a treehouse for a couple of hours, so we began our afternoon with a wine tasting in their tasting room. We then purchased a couple bottles of wine and headed up the many stairs to the balcony of the treehouse. Sitting on white rocking chairs we took in the view of the vineyard while sipping wine and eating a picnic I had packed.

You see, wine tasting and picnicing is our thing. Bryan proposed while picnicing on a vineyard in Napa Valley, and ever since then we have made a point to use that same picnic basket and go wine tasting. Picnicing on a vineyard is special to us... It's where it all began!

After spending the entire day at the winery we headed back up to the lake, stopped off at Dressler's for dinner and then went home and rocked the night away on our front porch. What a simple, beautiful and romantic way to ring in the beginning of our 3rd year of marriage!

You guys have such a cool story! Im kind of jealous, but I guess I have had my own cool/different journey which involved babies instead of seeing the world. Someday I hope to travel with Kenny the way that you two are traveling. Tell Bryan that I said happy Anniversary. He is a lucky man! ;)
