a toast to love

 The alluring call of summer is hard to resist. It beckons you to slow down and to share beautiful moments with the ones you love. Life can get crazy and it's important to Sam and I to carve out moments when we are simply enjoying being in love.
Once a week we pack up a picnic and head down to a secluded, private beach for a relaxing day date. We spend our whole time lounging, laughing, and feeling like we've only just met. We sprawl out on our sea of blankets and pillows while enjoying a spread of our favorite little bites paired with beautiful, fresh wines. The Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay has been regularly making an appearance at our picnic. It's bright, fresh, and pairs easily with our favorite food. It's also the perfect way to toast our summer love, and that is what summer's all about. Doing the things you love with the people you love.
Share your toast on Instagram, Twitter, www.atoastto.com, or the Chateau Ste. Michelle Facebook page using the hashtags - #AToastTo and #ToastContest  - and enter to win tickets to their Summer Concert Series in Woodinville, Washington.

Omg these pictures look amazing! So beautiful and lovely. Your picnic looked perfect! I would love to do something like that. I love how you brought a wooden box to use as a small table, and all of those little candles!

What a great reminder to celebrate love and you two do it so well! Speaking of Chateau St. Michelle, their Sav Blanc is our go-to. We always have it stocked in the fridge. Light, crisp, not too dry. LOVE it! Wish you two were closer..TeamDolphinPod needs to hurry up the dream! :)
