My Surprise Anniversary Limo!

Hi guys, thank you for taking the time to visit my website.  So last weekend, my husband surprised me with an amazing anniversary trip to Napa in a rented limousine!  Mind you, I’ve never had the privilege to ride in one in my life and so you can imagine the look on my face when I saw a gorgeous white stretch limo pull up outside our home.  I’ll admit, for a minute, I thought they were here to pick up my neighbors because why in the world would a limo ever be here for us?  lol.  We’re just an average middle class couple who you wouldn’t typically see riding in something so fancy.  Well, I was shocked beyond words.

Our limo driver Ted was so courteous.  He greeted us, opened our door and offered us glasses of complementary champagne!  Not to mention very knowledgeable about the Napa wineries and its history.  We were very impressed!  The ride up to Napa was so beautiful and scenic.  We enjoyed the lovely views of the valley and the rolling hills.

We were taken to several wineries, including Robert Mondavi, Castello di Amorosa, Domaine Chandon, Sterling Vinyards, and Beaulieu Vineyard.  We also stopped for a picnic lunch at V. Sattui which is an absolutely beautiful winery and picnic area.  They offer fresh deli selections, meats, cheese, and all sorts of spreads and wines for your enjoyment!  It was great!  Ted was so patient and waited for us at every winery stop so that we could enjoy our wine tasting.  He even cleaned our wine glasses during stops.

After getting a bit of wine in, we stopped quickly at Bouchon Bakery to pick up some of my favorite macarons–raspberry, chocolate, pistachio and caramel.  A trip to Napa would not be a trip without a stop here!  The hubby then surprised me to dinner at Morimoto Napa, which was awesome because I’m a huge fan of Iron Chef America, and obviously, this was one of Morimoto’s restaurants.  Everything we ordered was delicious!  The Sea Urchin Carbonara, the Whole Fish, Toro Tartare, Morimoto Sashimi, Pork Belly with Congee, it was all delectable!  For dessert, we tried the mango sorbet over white chocolate ganash with yuzu pearls and pop rocks, tofu cheesecake, and the “Mango caviar” panna cotta with mango jelly tapioca.  I would definitely recommend this place to anybody who wants to try Japanese cuisine taken up a notch.  You won’t have to drool behind your television screen every time you watch the judge tasting!  You can taste for yourself!

Anyhow, we must have spent about 8 hours in Napa and Ted got us back home.  I just can’t enough I wonderful this limo company has been.  For any of you looking for fantastic limo service, I highly recommend San Francisco Limo Company here www.sanfrancisco-limo.com.  It was the first time I had ever ridden in a limousine.  And I will tell, it will probably not be my last after this experience!

I just want to thank my wonderful husband for putting together one of the best wedding anniversary gifts ever!  He definitely out did himself.  I am so ever grateful for you in my life.  I love you!
