 ~Sail Away~

Sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me honey now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now

Crazy skies all wild above me now
Winter howling at my face
And everything I held so dear
Disappeared without a trace
Oh all the times I’ve tasted love
Never knew quite what I had
Little Darling if you hear me now
Never needed you so bad
Spinning round inside my head

Sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me honey now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now

I’ve been talking drunken gibberish
Falling in and out of bars
Trying to get some explanation here
For the way some people are
How did it ever come so far

Sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me honey now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now
Sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me honey now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now

Last fall I took my first EVER trip to San Francisco with some friends, and met some new one’s.  We traveled from all corners of the country.  We were hosted by my friend Kristen, and stayed a few days at her place before venturing off to Napa & Sonoma for the weekend.  We stayed in this lovely little house nestled in Sebastopol, which was really quiet and quaint.  One day we went wine-tasting from Healdsburg to Sonoma and stopped at some pretty incredible wineries.  My favorite was Matanzas Creek, which was settled between the beautiful rolling hills of Sonoma.  Matanzas Creek also produced their own lavender, so it was neat to walk through the fields.  One morning we got up early and drove to the coast to Botany Bay, which was also a great little side trip.  It was really foggy and moody and I got some great shots of the rocky coast.  We ended the trip in San Francisco and saw all the sights including the Golden Gate Bridge, Trolley Cars, and had cocktails & oysters on the wharf.  It was a great trip with great friends.

What a wonderful year it has been, and it’s the perfect time as wedding season starts to slow down to give thanks. While this one day really makes us reflect on what we are thankful for, I feel that everyday should be a reason to give thanks. Thanks for what you have, but also giving thanks to others for all that they do. Remember to thank someone everyday. Happy Thanksgiving!!!
