Winter in Paso Robles seems to be the time Annie and I spend catching our breath. It’s that time of year where things really seem to slow down here in Paso Robles…wineries aren’t as busy, some restaurants have shorter hours, some places even close for the winter, and the number of wine events drop significantly. As someone that is self-diagnosed as A.D.D. and Lord only knows what else…I get antsy.
This year is obviously a little bit different because we have Sammy and a two month old is really good at keeping two adults busy but I still find myself wondering; what next? Even with Sammy, Annie working part-time before she goes back to work full time in January, me working on this new business, and all the Christmas parties…I still find myself missing that fast pace, big city life that we live here in Paso Robles from Spring to Fall. Okay, fast pace and big city may not be completely accurate but you must know what I’m talking about.
What do you think about this time of year? Do you like the slow down? Does it even slow down for you?
