May Day

Today was quite simply, a perfect Saturday. Prepare yourselves for total photo domination.

Lots of cute photos of babies, flowers and cupcakes ahead. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya.

I ran a couple miles this morning before gulping down this bad boy for lunch that was literally made with half a bag of spinach. I was glowing!

And then I headed over to one of my favorite places, the Kendall-Jackson Food and Wine Center for Farm Stand!

Farm Stand is, pretty much, a big farmer’s market that will be taking place one Saturday a month over the summer at the Wine Center. There were plants for sale, cupcakes, cheese, produce, cookies, bread, and of course, wine. I don’t really go places unless there’s wine involved. See a trend?




Justin, the head chef at Kendall-Jackson, did some cooking demos with fiddlehead ferns. My favorite! Besides tasting delicious, isn’t just saying fiddlehead ferns fun?


It was very interesting. And, we got to sip some Sauvignon Blanc while we watched. More wine!

What could be better than wine and fiddleheads you ask? This little cutie pie right here.

That would be Justin’s baby, Delaney. She gripped my index finger and wouldn’t let go. I coveted her bonnet.


I have an affection for baby’s feet? I love to pet them and stare at tiny knitted boots and socks that might fit them. There’s just something about tiny toes that gets me every time.
Ali showed up and we shared a chocolate coffee cupcake in the sunshine:


Ryan said he used Blue Bottle Coffee in these babies…..oh my, so good!


Such a fun day. If you are in Sonoma County for the next Farm Stand on June 5th, you must stop by!
I’m back home now and desperately need to shower. I can only sport the whole sweat slicked hair thing for so long. Thank goodness for big sunglasses and perfume! Headed to the boy’s house tonight for a BBQ and to ease my sadness over my Kentucky Derby loss by watching Seabiscuit. I had Ice Box for the win….so sad. So close.
shower power!

    I am jealous – I want a Farm Stand, or any other kind of farmer’s market actually. Hopefully the ones that crop up in Athens over the summer are as good as yours seemed to be!

    Hi Jenna-You are such a Doll! What is it like for your whole life to be public? Do you live your life for you, or do you think about how it will look on your blog?Something sacred is lost in such a public life. It is prudent of you to have kept your relationship private. You are young, like me, and I think that life can be so special and intimate, kept a bit more private. I wish you all the best and all the happiness in the world 🙂

    Beautiful pics–I love your photographer’s eye. Also, I’ve been wanting to try fiddleferns since I first saw them in my organic seed catalogue. Any cooking recommendations?

    Also, I’m in Kentucky btw, in terms of Derby: I may not have bet on Super Saver, but I sure bet on Calvin Borel. Seriously, he can enter the Derby next year on a Shetland Pony and I’m still putting a tenner on that man.
