A place belongs forever to whoever claims it hardest, remembers it most obsessively, wrenches it from itself, shapes it, renders it, loves it so radically that he remakes it in his own image.
– Joan Didion

Sonoma County holds a special place in my heart. My husband and I bought our first house in Petaluma at the southern edge of the county, and our son was born there.

Sonoma County is breathtakingly beautiful. When we lived there I enjoyed rugged coastline, sandy beaches, farm country, wineries, oak-studded coastal prairies, redwood forests, the Russian River and the Petaluma River. Although I am happy in south Orange County, I do miss the wide open wild spaces of Sonoma County.
