In high school my sister and I would force ourselves not to get overly excited about a particular event we were looking forward to, in fear that it wouldn’t meet our expectations. As I’ve gotten older, and have had some awesome opportunities presented to me, I’ve realized the one’s I wasn’t expecting much from were the ones I loved the most.
“Under promise, over deliver.”
This past weekend I had the opportunity to go to BottleRock – a music/food/wine festival in Napa. Not being a HUGE festival/concert goer, I wasn’t as ecstatic as I should have been… luckily 5 minutes into my arrival I realized how clueless I had been. String lighting and beautiful paper lanterns, amazing food from some of my favorite restaurants (Ca’Momi, Morimoto), the coolest lounges and even better cocktails and wine (their house cocktail was a Grapefruit Basil Collins that I have to recreate for FDF)!
Overall it was a weekend to remember and I can’t wait to book our tickets for next year – be sure to join in on the fun! Here were some of the highlights:
