The Move Out West – Meritage Resort & Spa Napa

Updated: Jul 2, 2020


Football season is finally here! That means packing up the house, filling the Uhaul and heading out to Cali for G’s second season with the San Francisco 49ers. Thank you Lord! This year we decided George’s mom and sister would drive out with Deenie and I. We wanted to make it a girls road trip! 

We departed from Iowa City, IA, went through Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, and Nevada before getting into California. Let me tell you, the landscape was stunningggggg. Deenie really showed off the mountain dog in her blood 😉

This would be the last good bit of time spent with Emma before she moved to Santa Fe New Mexico so I pretty much forced her into trekking across the map with me. So glad I did! We had an absolute blast and had more late night convos than most sister-in-laws get to have 😉 – basically i’d pack up the car anytime and go anywhere with this girl, & Deens.

We took full advantage of the beautiful landscape. climbing hills, and boulders and everything we could manage to in Birkenstocks. All for that perfect shot lol.

Take the road trip! You wont regret it. I love any chance I get to spend time with these girls. 

Deens looks so beautiful in this photo. Smile with a subtle head tilt, thats my girl.

The Meritage Resort and Spa, best thing about them, they’re dog friendly! Boy oh boy did they spoil Deens. We had a stunning view of their house vineyard from the balcony off our room. I could stay out there and watch the sunrise for the rest of my life.

There are multiple different tasting rooms on the Meritage property. One we went to was  Gen 7 Wines.

Trinitas Cellars was another tasting room onsite, we spent quite a bit of time there 😉 Deenie joined as well.

Ubers are also dog friendly 😉

A fan favorite from the weekend.

Thanks for shuttling us around for the weekend Meritage Resort we will be back! 

I highly recommend Meritage Resort & Spa for your family friendly get away or your romantic weekend in the Napa countryside. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed for a fantastic stay. Deenie even came home with a souvenir bag! Our souvenirs were bottles of wine 😉

Seeing G at practice for the first time. <3 

He’ll always have his girls <3 Football season lets goooooooooo!
