I love living in the Wine Country.
#1 It’s in the country.
#2 It’s a tourist destination.
#3 Lovers come to the wine country.
#4 It’s fabulous people watching, especially on the weekends.
Lots of women flock to the wine country for girlie weekends together. I see them in the restaurants, in the stores, on the streets. They’re in summer dresses or cute rolled up jeans and darling tops. They carry great handbags, wear scarves and jewelry. They thought about what they were bringing to wear for the weekend. You can tell they care about how they look.
There are lots of weddings here so you also see great dress up outfits. Some of them are quirky dress up — like a long flowy skirt with clunky shoes on a woman I saw this weekend. It worked on her! Others are in cocktail dresses or pretty skirts and heels.
One man outside The Girl and the Fig restaurant said, “I just want to sit here on the bench and watch people go by.” Amen!
Wouldn’t it be great if people got dressed in the morning, every morning, and put on something they cared about and enjoyed being in? That’s the kind of scenery we’d all enjoy, wouldn’t we?
