Traveling Pants Visit Napa Valley

Get Social


It’s my birthday today, so is my usual custom to stretch out my special day as long as possible.  As my birthday falls on a Monday this year, I decided to start celebrating on Saturday.  While I won’t bore you with all the details, I will share that my husband and I headed to the Napa Valley for a ride on the wine train.



Traveling in Style

In December I received a pair of Joe’s Jeans thanks to the Traveling Mamas and a sharp PR representative for the up-scale denim company. After reading how well the designer jeans fit each of the Traveling Mamas, I was starting to get concerned.  I’m not as young or thin as some of my fellow travel writing friends.  What if my high-waist-style Muse jeans didn’t fit?  I did have to get them shortened, but to my relief and delight, the Joe’s Jeans fit perfectly.

My 16 year old, petite sized daughter is also a fan of Joe’s Jeans. I love the fact that a hip company like this makes jeans to fit all shapes and sizes.  The soft material feels comfortable when I’m traveling in the car, on trains, or walking around in a Napa Valley vineyard. The fact that there is 2% Lycra in the jeans doesn’t hurt either.  Thank you Joe’s Jeans.

I was going to include a birthday wish list, because all travel writers have a list of “must have” items, but instead, I’ll close with my “travel” wish list for 2009.  I wish to find myself in Switzerland for an eco-friendly visit.  I hope to be in Chicago in July to attend the BlogHer conference and perhaps a travel writer meet up.  Norway has always been on my wish list because my father’s side of the family is Norwegian. Finally, I wish for continued good health so that I may keep up with my passion for travel.

    I never thought that I would buy a pair of designer jeans, but Joe Jeans is the ONLY boutique company that makes a soft, comfortable jean for the petite silhouette. If you buy jeans that are too long for you, and simply have them shortened, the break is still below your knee (makes you look saggy).~Thanks from a 5’3 lady,Lavanna Martin

    Hi Lavanna,I agree; Joes Jeans are fantastic. By the way, I’m 5’4 and not getting any taller.
