Shopping in St. Helena, California is like stepping into a fantastic magical world. With a total area of just 5 square miles, it packs the best of Wine County. Here you will find world class fine dining, world class shopping (shoes!), the cutest little pet shop you have ever seen, a legendary spa, impeccable art galleries, exquisite hand crafted chocolates, and a culinary school that sits in what looks like Hogwarts. 
It's perfection really. 
Don't let the laid back California attitude fool you, this town is dripping - drowning even, in money and beauty. Miles away from Napa and Santa Rosa, St Helena sits nestled in it's own private valley. Hot air balloons can be seen soaring up overhead, and in late September the entire valley along with the surrounding hills ignite in fiery hues of vineyards that are due. 
Sitting 8 miles above is my Alma Mater, Pacific Union College.
This past weekend I went to visit a dearly beloved "cousin" of mine, and one of my first roommates, Marla. We first met in Paulin Hall (the music building), and our first conversations started with "Do you like Madame Butterfly?" The rest was history. We soon discovered that we had so much in common that it would be silly not to become cousins. So we did.  The funniest this is however, when Marla's sister Yvonne arrived later, they thought she was the cousin, and I the sister!
