A couple weekends ago, I headed north with my dad up to Healdsburg to celebrate my aunt and uncle's 50th birthday.  I adore going up there - it's always great to see family (they have the best home up there), and it involves a good deal of wine, late night chats, and relaxing.  I really wish I could have stayed longer.
