|Castello Di Amorosa, Calistoga|
For those of you who keep up with La Créature Chic, I feel awful for not posting in weeks! Let's just say the past few weeks made for a tone of posts to come. I recently took a break from my summer job as secretary at the small family owned exterior design company and headed up for the wine country to visit my mother's neck of the woods (she doesn't reside there, but the majority of her event planning/ catering gigs are at Quintessa vineyards, her employer.) It's always exciting to come back once in a while and see one of the places a lot of my childhood was spent coming with her to work and riding the company's bikes up and down the vineyards while watching her work the sometimes artistic, even glamourous (or so I thought as a child) job that has influenced me in my thinking process and overall view of a lot of things.
