Before and after

If you ask any expat what they miss the most from their home country, there's a good chance you'll hear them recite a laundry list of all kinds of things only available from their native land. For us, family and friends will always be the number one thing we miss. Also up there on the list are hockey, good Mexican food, seasons, and of course, California wine.
Jeff and I decided a trip home was in order to satisfy our cravings for the people and things we've been missing in Singapore. We sort of planned our arrival to coincide with the annual Superbowl party that Jeff's parents throw, which in recent years has become a family reunion of sorts. It was a great way for us to cram as many family visits into one trip home as possible.
First things first: a wine-tasting trip to Testarossa winery with some of Jeff's cousins the day we arrived. Jeff and I hadn't been back since our wedding day a few years ago. The weather was like a warm spring afternoon, the wine was delicious, and the company was great. It feels so great to be home.
