Weekend Getaway in Sonoma (Near Napa)


My honey and I decided to escape the city for a weekend in Sonoma to celebrate our first year together and found an adorable Airbnb.

Our host Teitzah was such a sweetheart! She made us a welcome goody bag (which I forgot to take a picture of, of course) filled with local fruit, Trader Joe’s probiotic drinks and some delicious raw dark chocolate. Yum! She even gave us a bottle of rose wine for our anniversary. She was so sweet I didn’t have the heart to tell her we’re not married… we’ve just been dating for a year. We’ll be sure to come back if we do get married though ❤

Her home felt just like a peaceful getaway spa. The colors were so warm and earthy, and she decorated it with beautiful sculptures from Bali and Thailand. Make sure to check out her Airbnb and use this link if you’ve never used Airbnb before. I’ll get a referral for introducing you ;D

If you do stay at the Sea of Bamboo Retreat Center, I highly recommend you book some massages! Teitzah gave me an amazing massage and offered us a package deal: we got to use the spa and hot tub in the backyard for free =] Plus, she went out of her way to find a second massage therapist so we could both get massages at the same time.

It was a great, lazy weekend. We cuddled lots, tried out a couple of restaurants and wondered into a winery the bar tender at Sunflower Caffe recommended: Gundlach Bundschu. (Highly recommend both — the cocktails and duck sandwich at Sunflower are delicious, and we really liked the wine at Gundlach.)

Enough of all this typing though, enjoy the pictures!
