Napa Valley Date with Parabellum | Gina Chong
Things are a bit crazy around our house these days. Hubby's only been home for exactly 4 days in the past month. He just got home again last night, but tomorrow I leave to be a counselor at a youth camp. One week after I get back we'll be off to Europe for three weeks but still don't have an itinerary, eek! But the hubs and I have gotten pretty good at making the most of our short time together. Today we went on a date to one of our favorite places in the Bay: Yountville, in Napa Valley.

I've said it many times before, but we just love Yountville. It's a tiny little town just north of Napa and it's perfect. Everything is dripping in ivy and so beautiful, and it is chock full of delicious restaurants. Today we grabbed dinner, stopped at the gourmet grocery for a good chocolate bar, and walked around a bit until sunset.

My new wallet is from Parabellum. Their brand is based in LA and they make beautiful quality leather goods. All of their stuff is responsibly made from free-range bison, and they sell direct to customer, which means that things are kept affordable. I picked out this skinny cash and carry wallet because I thought it would be perfect for traveling, especially when we get to Europe. Check out all their other amazing products, I'm obsessing over their pouches and messenger bag.


  1. Ooh that's pretty, I do love those type of wallets - so good for mini bags!!
