A bottle of wine begs to be shared; I have never met a miserly wine lover.
Clifton Paul Fadiman
I have celebrated my birthday,currently making new wine event connections,planned a few trips and working on some cool projects!
This month, I will begin the preparation for testing for the 3rd Level of the Advanced Certification of the WSET “Wine and Spirit Eductation Trust.” I foresee a lot of studying in my near future! The exam is in August. WISH ME LUCK!
I am in a weekly blind wine-tasting group to prepare me for that part of the exam. This has been fun,challenging and a huge learning experience!
And, I will soon be attending a 3 day Food Bloggers Conference in Orlando and a Wine Bloggers Conference in August held in Portland,Oregon.
My Mantra for this year: ” I’m not getting older;I’m just getting started!”
After starting this blog over 8 months ago,so many wonderful things have happened! It’s been a whirlwind of stepping out of my comfort zone and learning how to express myself and sharing my deep passion for my culinary adventures with food and wine. I have learned so much and still have so much more to learn. I am constantly finding cool wines and interesting events to blog about and great recipes to share.
So many opportunities have been coming my way that I have been a little behind on posting blogs. I am now working on getting a more regular blogging schedule.
Over the past few months, so many truly wonderful and positive friends have come into my life and continue to inspire me. I am one of the luckiest ladies I know. I have made so many connections that it’s almost overwhelming!
“When one door closes ,another one opens!” This has been so true in many aspects of my life. And, having my cherished friends walk side by side with me and share their passions has truly become a gift that keeps on giving!
Just in these past 2 days,I have had the opportunity to sample more fantastic wines! I am excited to share these great finds with you soon!
This weekend, I will be hosting a SPANISH PAELLA and Wine Pairing Dinner for some friends. I will post the event next week. This will be a real treat! The food will be authentic and delicious and the wines, oh my the wines! I can’t wait to share these delicious Spanish wine with you!
I am looking forward to sharing all my passions with you on a REGULAR SCHEDULE! So, STAY TUNED and THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND SUPPORT!!!!!!!!!
I AM RIDING THIS WAVE AND HAVING A BLAST!!!!!!
