Gatherings

I love creating a space where I can make my guests feel welcome. I put a lot of thought and effort into hosting. To me, entertaining is curating an experience for the people who gather with you.  The little touches add up to make big impressions. These details heighten the senses. I believe that the more senses you pleasantly engage, the deeper the experience. These experiences create lasting memories.

Wagyu & Wine

You just never know who you’ll find in my farmhouse kitchen. This June, it was Celebrity Chef, Kent Rathbun.

Tulips & Tapas

Isn’t Spring glorious? In the Napa Valley, it is marked by bud break. This is when the grapevines wake up and the first leaves emerge from the dormant buds. You can hear “Have you had bud break yet?” all over the valley. I decided to gather some friends to welcome Spring.

Post-Fire Gathering

The Napa Valley fires in October of 2017 were devastating. I have several friends that lost their homes. It was heartbreaking to hear their stories of close calls and loss. After securing our homes and starting repairs, we gathered in gratitude and friendship.
