About Jessica Picket
The daughter of a free-spirited, surfing waitress and a professional cross-country mover, Jessica discovered most of the country from the dog trot of an eighteen-wheeler before turning 5 years old. Raised along the banks of the Sabine River Jessica was fortunate enough to be able to call both Texas and Louisiana home. She embraces her naturally curious soul, love of nature, and appreciation for culture.
After marrying a 4th generation farmer who had never taken a vacation, an entirely new adventure began. Jessica and her husband now split their time between farm chores and traversing the globe. You can read more about their adventures on Jessica’s blog site at www.TheRootedGypsy.com.
The Rooted Gypsy on MilesGeek
Jessica’s first contribution to MilesGeek is a walk along The Freedom Trail in Boston.
Leading up to the 2016 Holiday season, Jessica takes us on a virtual tour of wineries along The Coastal Wine Trail on the east coast of the United States. Her first stop is Maugle Sierra Vineyards in Connecticut. Next she visits Jonathan Edwards Winery. See where her journey takes her next in The Coastal Wine Trail series on MilesGeek.
Plan a trip to see the wineries for yourself. Or, at the very least select one or two of Jessica’s wine recommendations for your holiday table.
MilesGeek looks forward to seeing where Jessica’s journeys take The Rooted Gypsy over the next few years.
