I couldn’t sit still the other day. Had some deadlines that I needed to reach and after non-stop rain I just wanted to get out. I hopped in the car and went for a drive, ending up at Chaumette Vineyards & Winery. I love this place. Many people do, but it’s special to me. Chaumette is where Crazy Man and I had our first date. It is where we spend our anniversary and birthdays. Crazy Man will tell you that he doesn’t know how he convinced me to go on a second date with him. Honestly, I don’t know how he can put up with me. I have red hair, an Irish+German temper and I’m a Pisces. Ha! Now you know why I call him Crazy.

I’ve taken many photos at Chaumette in the springtime when the purple creeping phlox is taking over the wooden stairs, but I have never managed to get photos of the grapes on the vine. So on my restless day, missing Crazy, I let myself breathe.
