Busy busy busy!

My fall was jam packed back to back shenanigans all weekend every weekend, and winter is shaping up to be more of the same!

Saturday was the Safeway Foundation Gala, an annual black tie benefit that raises money for Safeway's philanthropic arm, which contributes mostly to cancer research. The event takes place in a hanger on Treasure Island and includes a cocktail hour, silent auction, formal dinner, guest speakers, and a performance, this year from Lionel Richie.

Sunday I headed to Napa for a wedding at V. Sattui. It was one of the most romantic and genuine weddings I've been to yet! They totally lucked out on the weather, with high 60's and clear skies, and were able to have the wedding just after dusk in the courtyard in front of the barrel room.

Monday we did lunch on the Napa Wine Train. It was another clear, sunny day, and the vineyards were full of bright orange leaves. But a word to the wise: It's better to start a wine filled weekend on the train than to end it there. All I wanted to do was curl up on my seat and take a nap!
