Happy Friday! It seems like spring suddenly exploded here, and we’ve been loving the last several days of warmer temps and sunny skies. So much, in fact, that I missed writing a longer blog post this week! It’s also Sacramento Beer Week — but apparently 7 days is no longer enough because it’s now 11 full days. We hope to try some of the many new local beers coming out for this special event. (Update: we loved the 4 Northeast style IPAs today at one of our favorites, Track 7 Brewing.)
We’ve just made plans for three upcoming trips. I can’t wait to share details with you soon! In the meantime, I’m still working on my new exercise routine, setting up a wine tasting party with friends, and celebrating Brazilian Carnaval tomorrow. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. As always, my favorite links of the week:
