    Napa Valley! #WineNot?

    A couple weeks ago, I went on a girls trip to San Fran in honor of one of my childhood friend’s wedding and we did a day trip to Napa. It was amazing! We rented a limo to take us from SF to Napa and back from about 10am till 8pm. If you ever do the trip, then keep traffic in mind- traffic is insane from SF to Napa no matter what time of the year it is! There is a lot to say about Napa, but I am only going to focus on which wineries we went to and what I liked about them! We started the day off at…

    You are my sunshine: Cafe Sunflower

    Cafe Sunflower is a vegetarian/vegan restaurant with a family style setting in Sandy Springs, GA and the Buckhead, GA location has more of a city feel to it. Cafe Sunflower has been around since the 1990’s when owners Edward and Lin Sun became vegetarians which resulted in many health benefits. I had the pleasure of dining with Jenny, the owner’s daughter, to learn move about Cafe Sunflower. The menu at Cafe Sunflower is constantly changing, but the one thing that  remains the same is that they are completely vegetarian and most dishes are vegan as well. They incorporate a plethora of cuisines including Italian, Thai, Indian, Mediterranean, Vietnamese, American, Mexican and…
