Stripes and Booties

I caught up with girlfriends on Sunday at Sonoma Wine Garden in Santa Monica Place and it was just as fabulous as I had hoped. The outdoor deck, scenic views, wine tasting, and exceptional food (make sure to try the arugula and white truffle oil pizza) established it as a new neighborhood favorite of mine. The girls and I had a great time and I'm already planning my next visit with Gabe.
