So when one of Kayla's friends offered for us to use his place on we jumped on the chance to have our first sister road trip in 10 YEARS!

I'd never heard of Arnold, CA and honestly it didn't matter where we were going just that we got to get in the car and GO! Roooooooooad Trip! It was all about the journey!

Friday morning we headed out past the twirly things...
and the tree farms in little towns with little speed limits...
and old general stores...

and beautiful fields with cool signs and happy cows that Kayla moo-ed at...

and when we made it to Murphys, CA we stopped in for lunch at V's...

where we found a comfy spot by the windows and the fire place...
selected a vino from a local winery (the old vine zin, sooo good)...

and after our amazing lunch headed out to wine tasting first at this little place...

where you can't help but be drawn in by the lovely scent...

and then we visited this place and fell in love with the wine pup...

and then it was time to venture into the forest...
we were received by the care-taker of the property and let into the guest house that was far beyond our expectations!


a river runs behind the cottage leading to a lake surrounded by little patches of snow...



the cabin is 2 br and 2 baths but of course we stayed in the master together...

the next morning we got up with the sun and celebrated our bed heads...

and then started the journey home passing rushing rivers and tiny waterfalls...

and sleeping vineyards...

and the most daffodils I've ever seen growing all over the place...

and then there was this tree... I find it completely mesmerizing. Once bold and proud it now stands alone among it's own branches as it goes back into the earth where it began...

and though it rained almost the entire trip everything was bright and beautiful and once again the California that is now my home did not disappoint.

Sweet sister!
What an amazing 24 hours! My face still hurts from laughing, I am still humming the songs we were singing and I'm fairly certain there's still a few cows on high alert out there! Thank you for an unforgettable sister road trip!

Love you!
Lacy
