Am I blessed?

This is where I live, Napa Valley, California.

The heart of the Wine Country.

This is why I live here.
Today was 80 degrees and no humidity.
Harvest is over and all the vines are changing in to their fall colors.
Because it looks like this all around the valley, my hubbie is inspired to paint pictures like these.

I don't even have to drive for views like this. I just take the dogs for a walk.

Am I blessed?

You betcha!

I am a little envious of the views, and the temperatures. Everything where I am is dead and brown. But when it is all covered with snow....AMAZING!!
We are blessed!

You are so definitely blessed.....that countryside, those views, the colors et al....so beautiful and right in your own backyard.
AND may I say that your husband absolutely astounds me with his talent. OMG! I must meet this man and shake his hand...

Awwww man I'm jealous! Things in Utah are not so glamorous right now. We've moved from beautiful Fall colors to DEAD brown everything. YUCK!

Your husband is an amazing artist!

Beautiful artwork. My good friend had a summer home in Napa, and I think it was so gorgeous there. You are blessed. Hope your auction for the Red Art went well. Karen

Yep, you're a lucky chicky.... or just darned smart for choosing such a beautiful place to call home? Your husband's paintings are wonderful.... I thought some of them were photographs until I looked closer. You are both so talented. It must be wonderful to spend your time in like-minded company~~
