Originally, when we started debating what to do for my birthday, we thought we would pack up the boys and head up to Yosemite for the day. It's not too far away and the fall leaves are just stunning in the higher elevation. With winter right around the corner a lot of our favorite trails are already closed down and instead of spending half our day, searching for the perfect picnic spot, we decided to stay a little closer to home.
So we packed up our little picnic basket full of goodies as well as some lovely wine gifts supplied to me by the wonderful people at Uncommon Goods. Uncommon Goods has to be one of the most charming shops for personalized gifts with an emphasis on keeping their products unique and in harmony with the environment without harm to animals. When searching through their selection for supplies we feel in love with bamboo wine table and the afterglow garden stake which we will be turning into a touch for our patio area. Everything collapses perfectly into a basket along with some more basic wine glasses we purchased on the way.
Once we got settled we debated where the best place to set up would be and, being the total goofballs we are, decided in the middle of the road would be the perfect place to settle in. We set up the table and all of our goodies on the side of the road beside us just incase there was a sudden need to abandon ship and get out of the way! The table is the perfect size for the baked brie round that I brought along for the outing which I topped with a rare fall treat of fresh berries.
We spent most of the afternoon just sipping wine, laughing, and watching the dogs run through the hills. I tried to snap some pictures of the pups but almost everything came out as a blur of black moving through the sunset. It was the perfect day and an uncommonly good way of spend my birthday!
Big Thanks to Uncommon Goods for suppling me with all the wonderful items for my perfect birthday celebration!
