{Graduation Party} An Afternoon at the Winery

Last weekend was my graduation party. We had it at Regale Winery in the Santa Cruz/Los Gatos area. Such a gorgeous setting! Although it was cloudy, the temperature was perfect and the fellowship was even better. We had a whole array of cheese, crackers, fruit, veggies, and some seriously cute bundt cakes. If you live in the Bay Area and haven't tried Nothing Bundt Cake yet, you're missing out! They're a great alternative to the typical cupcake and they taste equally as good {if not better!} 

I just love this winery. My family has been members for about a year now, and we always enjoy going up together and sipping on a glass of wine.  Sometimes Hope gets to come, too! I think this is where I'll want to get married one day. What do you think?! A pretty place for a wedding, right? :) Here are some pictures from around the winery...

My sweet friend Stephanie gifted me this beautiful print with one of my favorite verses from Proverbs 31 on it.  Get one for yourself here

My beautiful mom and I:
My grandma and I {she's the interior designer I often talk about! I know, she doesn't look like she could be my grandma!}
My good friend Kate and I. She's adopting children from Ethiopia, which means major playroom and nursery designs are coming soon! :) Read about their journey here.

Okay, I promise this is the last you'll hear of my graduation! I'm off to continue planning for one of my best friend's bridal showers this Sunday.  It's going to be close to 100 degrees and the shower is outside...this should be interested. If you have any ideas on how to stay cool, do tell! This girl needs all the ideas she can get :)

Back tomorrow with a lovely home tour! Happy Thursday!

PS!  I also wanted to give you a heads up that Google Friend Connect is going away on July 1st. If you follow blogs through your blogger and GFC, you'll need to find other ways to do so from now on. You can follow me these ways:
