Wine+Views+The Cutest Smoking Shoes

Brian and I recently traveled up to Paso Robles to do a little wine tasting. Wine is definitely one of the ways that I wind down, reflect, and relax. It's becoming one of my favorite hobbies and I love learning more about it. I got to share my recent trip on The Root Collective's instagram. The Root Collective creates handmade shoes in Guatemala. They employ men and women there and create sustainable jobs. They are also a Made In A Free World member company, so you as a consumer can feel a lot of joy purchasing these shoes knowing who made them. The thing I love about the smoking shoe is how you can wear it with anything and for any occasion. I love the versatility they bring to my closet. That's always a big thing I look for before making a purchase. Check out pics from our stunning trip to Paso! And check out The Root Collective!

We stayed at the comfiest and cutest airbnb called The Nest in Templeton. They had the prettiest views in the backyard and a fireplace where we could sit and drink our wine. From the back porch we watched a family of deer play in the field.

Our favorite winery of all we tried was Halter Ranch. Every wine I tasted was superb, and I loved how down to earth and friendly the staff was. How fun is this old bridge? They host a dinner here for wine club members. Of which we promptly joined.

I think I'd had a few glasses and was feeling pretty good!
