About Me

In case you missed it, my son Matthew turned 30 last week and we spent the most incredible weekend in Sonoma celebrating together as a family. There was a lot of golf and a lot of laughter and most importantly, a lot of togetherness.

And we might have had a little wine too.

We stayed at an unbelievable Airbnb near Sonoma hosted by the Kanzler Wine family. The house has four one-bedroom suites and it is gorgeous.

There are more photos of the home below, so be sure to check them out.

I am so grateful to have raised children who choose to spend time together as a family. It literally makes my heart so happy.

The bucket hats are something Matthew has always liked and even though they are silly, they are a lot of fun. We also tasted wine at Freeman winery and it was absolutely the best!

I love this time of year when we all gather together, and I hope that your holiday plans are coming together!

Kanzler Airbnb

In case you missed it, the Airbnb known as the Kanzler Estate is where we stayed for the birthday celebration. This entire home is my favorite “room” this week. It is such an amazing thing to be able to stay together in a home. Hotels can be lovely, but if I am honest, one of my favorite things about getting together as a family is the late-night and early-morning conversations that spontaneously happen when we are staying at a home.

The Kanzler Vineyard home is literally in the middle of a vineyard and is so peaceful and one of the coolest places I have ever stayed. They hosted a wine tasting when we arrived and their wines are amazing.

  1. Leslie,

    Love your family-time trip in Sonoma. We were just there and had fun discovering the Sebastopol area, new to me. My favorite winery this trip was Halleck. It is one of those smaller family wineries that has won several awards. The tasting (with food pairings) was in their dining room in their beautiful home overlooking the fields. Very informative, very fun. We had SO much fun a 1 to 1 1/2 hour tasting stretched beyond two hours and we had to quickly leave for our next appointment.

    Love, love, love Christmas. Have so enjoyed your 12 days of Christmas. Also love the creativity you share with your blogging friend, KariAnne. Happy Holidays!

    1. Hi Nancy! It was absolutely amazing, thank you! Wow, that sounds fantastic- I’m going to have to bookmark that one. Oh I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed it- I love sharing my ideas. Have a lovely day!

  2. Leslie and friends
    So many fun wineries up and down California; endless list.
    A favorite of ours is ONYX WINES in Paso Robles.
    Happy sipping

    1. Hi Leslie, we loved hosting you and your beautiful family at the Kanzler Estate Vineyard and we look forward to your return! You’ll see your book, A Home to Share in the middle of the living room your next visit as it’s already inspiring me. Until next time my friends, cheers!
      Bre Kanzler
