Have you been to wine country? I've heard others talk about the beauty of the vineyards and the peacefulness of the rolling hills but I wasn't prepared for just how pretty this part of the country is. I traveled to Sonoma, thanks to LimeLife by Alcone for sending me on a Leaders Retreat.

Our stay at The Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Resort and Spa, consisted of self development, self care, wellness and self growth. I am a big self development + wellness junkie so this was right up my alley. Of course we had social hour with wine tours too.  We packed a world of activities into those 4 days but I'm going to share the highlights of my trip.

Wellness: Waking up to an hour of Yoga, every single day set the tone.  I have really gotten into yoga. There is nothing on earth that can clear my mind and calm my spirit like yoga can. If you haven't yet tried it, you must! Two afternoons, we went on a two hour hike in Sonoma. I'm definitely not one that loves to hike, but I can appreciate absorbing Gods creation. Speaking of appreciation but completely changing directions, we were offered a Cardi B dance class. This is where the work became werk! If you see me drinking at a bar... wait for it. I'll be that girl with my 89 seconds of fame doing Cardi B to "I like it." I love to dance (especially to rap.) And busting out Cardi Choreography at a bar has never sounded more badass.. and hysterical.

Social Hour: We spent one night at Gloria Ferrers and one night in a cave at Benzinger. Wow. Wow. Wow. All of it. Glamorous. Romantic. Timeless. The wine. The food. All of it. This was one for the books!

I should have brought a blanket, a picnic basket, a wine bottle, two glasses and Marq. It was too romantic to do it alone. Which only means, we're headed back.

LimeLife family dinner in Benzinger Cave. Stunning.
