Team Rif in the Wine Country

Mark and I just got back from our first ever workshop together, held in Healdsburg (CA) this past weekend, and we had a great time, (more on that later!) Gayle Hunter and Ross Allen were gracious enough to let us stay with them overnight in their beautiful home overlooking the Russian River, and treating us to some lovely wines, as well as local foods like, olive oil, beautifully baked breads, artisan cheeses, fresh tomatoes, figs, etc. (and Ross makes the best coffee BTW)

Gayle Hunter (Russian River Kettlebells) and I walking to dinner at Scopa, in downtown Healdsburg. Saturday night was perfect for dining outside. Next time we have to get some "sliders" as an appetizer at the resturant in the Healdsburg Hotel. I've never had one (mini 'White Castle' type hamburger that melts in your mouth!), but I can't wait to try....afterall that's why I diet all week, so I can eat up on the weekend, right?

If you're ever in downtown Healdsburg you have to get some gelato at Powell's candy was crazy good! (Try to avoid the candy though, lol)

That picture could either be on your Team Rif Seminar brochure or your Christmas card for sure. You too are sooo cute!

Sounds just great all around, including the food and coffee!

I have always had a problem using "out of season" photos (kind of like food, lol) I think xmas photos should reflect the time of the year, it seems weird to me to see beach and/or summer scenes when it's freezing outside, lol!

My mother routinely changes the family snapshots aroung the house to reflect the season....that's probably where I get that.

But we can use the photo for our Team Rif in wine Country brochere! I would love to do it again sometime. Wish you were there!

Maybe on your next trip here we can find some time to go, it's a 2 hour drive from my house. I'm sure it's nice there year round.
