I cannot be the only one getting a little stir crazy from staying inside during all this cold weather. The weatherman is calling for some great weather this weekend so I am using it as the perfect excuse to get out to explore. I am planning on taking a wine tour at Lynfred Winery and brunch at Hache Moderne Brasserie for sure…who knows where the rest of the weekend will take me.
