Cousin Amy Gets Married

Instead of flying back to Georgia from San Francisco, Bridget and I flew straight to Ft. Meyers, FL to meet up with my parents who flew Bethany down from Birmingham so that we could all reunite for Amy (my cousin)and Ray's wedding. Great to see family and relax on the beach!

San Francisco Trip

Bridget and I were blessed to be able to fly out to San Francisco to share in one of my closest friend's wedding (Joseph Digerness and Rachel Yoo). Bethany stayed with the grandfolks so we took about 6 days to see the city while we were out there - love it. Tried to share bits and pieces of what we saw below, but there is really just too much, everyone needs to go sometime. It was an awesome time of renewal for our marriage and truly an honor to share with such a great friend being humbled by the covenant of marriage.
Alcatraz - really cool. Great views of the city and a lot of history.

We spent an entire day driving through the Sonoma Valley. We visited a total of 7 great wineries and Champagne Cellars and then took a detour on the way home to get a great view of the city at night...pretty romantic ;)

One evening we ate dinner at a great Italian place in Sausalito and watched the fog roll in to the Bay and cover the buildings of San Francisco in a matter of minutes.

We stayed 3 blocks away from this famous block of Lombard St.
