Napa is one of our favorite parts of Calif. - so many great wineries and restaurants. Our area has many fantastic restaurants as well and more wineries are springing up all over, but we always enjoy getting away to Napa (and Sonoma) to visit our favorites up there.
I know all about coming home fat from vacation ... I gained several extra pounds in France in June!
