This one is definitely a goldie. I suppose this might be a little sappy but I don't really care, I can be a real softy.
This is my good friend Loran (left). I have known her for six years but it seems we have been friends for a lifetime. She is supportive, honest, sincere, an incredible athlete, a wonderful mom and wife and just plain fun to be around.
She cheered me on during my viticulture & enology studies and listened to every story I told about this beautiful vineyard property we found in Oregon.
It was finally a pleasure to show her and her family the part of our lives we have worked so hard for and talked relentlessly about.
It was surreal to have them there hiking around as if nothing had changed and we had never moved away.
Our kids were pretty excited too. This is a child's wonderland...sticks, dirt and rocks.
They hiked around, explored and couldn't get enough of all the open space around them.
They made memories that will last a lifetime.
We miss them already!
Thanks for coming by guys, we had a blast.
