I am ready to go! Your pictures are wonderful Heather and I can see that you toured the finest wineries and dinned at spectacular restaurants. Yes…… joie de vivre!! Happy Friday! xxleslie

Ahh – can i say i came here a few times before but it wouldn’t let me comment!!! now it came up so phew.

I had to say I loved each and everyone’s point of view on this trip and it has inspired me to do something similar with my friends xx

Just beautiful Heather. You have such a wonderful way of weaving this story together. I feel like I’m right back there with you all. I love your Instagram photos. Let’s do it all again next year, my friend.

Gorgeous photos. I’ve not been to Napa in over a decade. I think I need to plan a return!!

Heather my dear! LOOK at this place! This is France in America! What a rich experience to indulge in these friendships in such a lush place. Bravo to you all for arranging this magnificent getaway. Oh, how I want to get away for a while, to just experience MYSELF in another setting, to find my value in general…I am a bit tired of seeing my shortcomings on a daily basis. I want to see myself just as a person with something to offer, something beautiful to create, and what a place to MUSE!

Big hugs to you dear friend, and your blog sure looks gorgeous. Anita

I love these images, like Katja said, I almost felt like I was there with you!! Looks like a great place to visit!

I love how you put together this post. It’s wonderful. The photos are great. And I love that table for dinner outdoors. It looks so inviting. This was a wonderful place to visit. I missed being there. :)

Thanks for linking up. Leigh

Such beautiful images, and oh how I love the look of that suite you stayed in. And that fabulous jewellery, and pretty much everything! Great to have you joining our IG Travel Thursday.

Heather, Beautiful post!! I love how you weaved all the best of Napa into your gorgeous trip photos. Wish we could do it all again! Have a great day!

I think I meant wove, but you know what I meant hopefully!! x

Love everything about this trip! I plan to visit with the family but now I may want to reconsider and plan a girls’ trip instead!

I just love Napa! That place you stayed at was amazing–a fireplace in your bedroom! Maybe someday I’ll get to go back and live luxury like that :)

Thank you for joining us for Instagram Travel Thursday! I loved living through your trip photos, almost like I was there!
