Flash Back to November 2009
Jon & I went to California to visit a school we were considering. It was the CIA: Culinary Institute of America - their Greystone location. Its basically the Harvard of culinary schools, and the price tag definitely reflected that. I can't help myself, but I've been day dreaming about it lately. This school was so magnificent. It was honestly like a mini Hogwarts inside.
But almost as amazing was the landscape it was nestled in. Jon & I had stayed the night in a nearby town, and had to drive about 10 minutes to get to the school for the tour. At first we drove a windy rode through the woody hills, but eventually it opened up into this amazing valley, THE Napa Valley. It was still early in the morning, so the sun was still really low and everything had a glow about it. If I could have sat by myself by the side of the rode & just watched the sun rise, I would have been in heaven. It was honestly the most beautiful thing to see these organized rows of beautiful yellowing grape leaves surrounded by lush green hills.
I'm having a bit of a love affair with nature lately.
