My place

Once known as the 'egg basket of the world', Petaluma –the southernmost town in Sonoma County, California – has stayed true to its agricultural roots while evolving into a foodie haven. It's a great place to soak up the miracle of nature, whether that's on a gentle stroll or even enjoying a simple bit of yoga, says Mellara Gold. "I just love the freedom that I feel inside my heart when walking through the mustard flowers in springtime," she tells OM. "They turn the vineyards and valleys into a vibrant yellow feeling of happiness while adding just a pop of colour to the local landscape."
