Henry had worked internationally for most of his adult life.
- He met and married his wife Annah while stationed overseas.
They lived a good life and brought up three kids. All of them were doing great. Henry and Annah always believed they’d return to the US and settle one day, But before doing so, they wanted to explore the whole country and choose a place to build or buy their retirement home. Their first pick of a state was California. After flying back, they found a temporary place to stay and began their new chapter. Annah wanted to explore Santa Barbara, which was where her grandmother was born. The city set at the coast was warm and lovely for most of the year. This was a huge selling point for a couple used to sunny places across the world. Another pro was weed dispensaries where they’d buy lots of things like edibles, CBD oils, and balms since weed is legal in the state. Annah wanted to begin their tour of Santa Barbara by going to wine country. They had been to some fantastic wine-growing areas in France and knew California was also an excellent area to explore. Annah had plans to get a few bottles which she would add to her wine collection. The dream home they had in mind had to have a wine cellar to house their fantastic collection from all over the world. The days spent in the wine country were unique as they even got to learn how to make wine. The Santa Ynez valley had a wine tour for all people, and along the way, they made some wonderful new friends.
