Travelogue: Paso Robles
Fresh flowers, bold brushstrokes, the sound of live music and laughter in the air. The Paso Robles Artsfest fills downtown Paso Robles every year with fun, fine art, and live music. This year, my Mom was juried into the event as a featured artist, so the family piled into our car and off we went. The event itself was a blast, and Paso is always a beautiful place to visit.
I paired the MARISSA Bracelet in Brushed Gold with an embroidered periwinkle dress, fitting for the artsy event. I had a chance to talk to a woman at the Artsfest about how much I loved my MARISSA Funktional Wearables bracelet. She was impressed by the product, and expressed concern in the blandness of Fitbit© design. I also got a lot of steps in at the event, almost 15,000! I encourage you to look up outdoor events in your city, they are great ways to get outside, get moving, and see some great art.

Sunday, we had a chance to visit some local wineries for more food, music and views. Paso Robles is an excellent place to spend a weekend, because the wineries always have something going on. Our first stop was Pear Valley, which had excellent views and exquisite alabaster Italian statues. After Pear Valley, we stopped at Cass Winery for lunch. I would highly recommend the lunch menu there; portions are perfect for sharing and tastings are complimentary with lunch. Steinbeck was a smaller winery, and we learned they provide some of the grapes for one of my parents’ favorite wines (Eberle). Then, we stopped at Sculpterra for live music and a nice little hike in the vineyards. It’s nice once in awhile to get away from all of the craziness and walk along the vines and smell the earth. There are live oaks everywhere, and hawks glide, playing in the bright blue sky.
