With Mother's Day around the corner champagne has been on my mind and just my luck I was invited to a tasting  by Thea of Luscious Lushes, Liza of Brix Chicks, Becca of The Gourmez and a few others including Frances from Amandus Wines. Frances poured three stellar cham...

My birthday is this week. My two best friends and I had planned to spend the weekend before in Big Sur, but the destruction of the Pfeiffer Canyon bridge put some dampers on that plan. So instead we decided to go to Monterey and devote a whole day to wine tasting. Nobo...

I didn't expect to be on hiatus this long, but then again we don't always expect the unexpected. Originally work got busy and I figured I'd have a little more time in the new year, then I didn't because I was busy being a caregiver for a family member. Care giving is h...

Colorado is another state that many people don't think of as a wine region, but they actually have a few different wine regions in the state and two federally recognized AVA's. About a decade ago I had the opportunity to try Creekside Cellars Robusto and it is a wine t...

Last month I spent a week in the woods outside of Yosemite with (almost) no wi-fi. It's an annual tradition in my family to visit Camp Mather. Camp Mather is a family camp where you can choose from an array of activities while you attempt to relax. As a working mom the...
