I often get asked what it's been like growing up around the Madonna Inn. Besides serving as my second home, I like to describe it as something of a Disneyland meets Willy Wonka fantasy world. And although I know most of the Inn like the back of my hand, I am continually amazed at how I can still find little details I've never noticed before. Lately, I've been combing through the internet looking for photos to add to Madonna Inn's Pinterest account (http://www.pinterest.com/madonnainn/) My favorite board thus far has to be "Photo Shoots at Madonna Inn," because I just love seeing the countless different ways people re-interpret the Inn's whimsy and decor. To know that others love, enjoy and appreciate MI as much as I do - as well as getting to see my "home" through another's lens - is such a gift! Here are just a few of the shots I'm loving right now -- Enjoy!

I finally turned 21 this past March, so when the opportunity to attend Roll out the Barrels in the Mission Plaza was presented to me earlier this week, I excitedly jumped on it. Between the live music, the plethora of wineries, and tons nummy nibbles to pair with the pours - this event was a blast! I even got to try a few local beers and a hard cider. If you love wine, food, or both, you should certainly attend next year!

... a seven mile hike, that is! Maybe we were feeling some giddy summer vibrations, or perhaps we were just feeling a little dizzy from lack of oxygen at 10,000 feet. Regardless, we had tons of fun with this MI water bottle "photoshoot" while in Bishop, CA. We started at Mosquito Flat and made our way to Morgan Pass in just a little over an hour.

Another Run SLO weekend has passed and I can't help but feel an incredible sense of gratitude. The weather, attendance, support and opportunity to be surrounded by so many inspiring people was truly a gift.
