There's really no place like Sonoma County. The weather is perfect, the scenery is picturesque and the wine is inexplicably great. We’re extremely lucky to call this magical place home. But we can’t be the only ones who give the subtle eye roll when our out-of-town guests suggest going wine tasting (didn’t we just do that last weekend?) or when we have to suffer outrageous allergies because of our beautiful, lush landscape.

These “problems” don’t quite classify as your average rut, but sometimes indulging in the “woe-is-me” is necessary. We get you, Sonoma County.

Scroll through the gallery above and check out our first-world "problems" when it comes to living in Sonoma County. If we missed any, let us know in the comments.
