Napa Valley

 

We just got back from one of our favorite places, Napa Valley. Here are some of the wineries we visited this go around (don’t worry, we weren’t driving). Until next time sweet California! 🍷🌞
(Judd’s Hill was our first stop during this trip & my husbands favorite. I loved it as well.
Heitz Cellar, had the most scenic and beautiful backdrop I’ve ever seen!
Duckhorn Vineyards, had amazing wine and a beautiful view of their gardens.

Cosentino Winery was wonderful and afterwards we walked just next door to have dinner at Mustards Grill which is a local favorite of ours. Del Dotto Wine Gallery was a great all around experience. We did the cave tour where you sample wine as you go. A definite thumbs up! Franciscan Estate, Black Stallion Winery, Calistoga & Provenance Vineyards were amongst some of the others we recently visited. All were equally wonderful and we decided to ship a bottle home from each of these places so we can remember our wonderful trip while celebrating special occasions to come.)

 

 

Singing for the NHL

It was great to be back on the ice again @ SAP center in San Jose to sing the anthem for NHL San Jose Sharks VS. Nashville Predators & the Barracuda game that followed. The crowd is always so welcoming and charged up that it’s become my favorite venue to perform at. Here are a few fun photos from my most recent trip out West. I’m mostly excited to say that I got to sing for Carrie Underwood’s hubby while he was lined up & waiting to play! LOL #NHL #SanJoseSharks #NashvillePredators #sanjosebarracuda #hockey #sanjose #nationalanthem 🎤🏒

This is one of my recent paintings of our hometown Parish, Saint Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church of Garden City, New York.  16″ X 20″ Canvas Board, matted in a 21″x 25″ Frame.  I included a work in progress video below. To see more like this, visit the “House Portraits” tab on this site.
