Aging and My Mid-Life Crisis

I can't believe that I am now 40. It sounds SO OLD. But I don't feel like I should be THAT old. Its depressing. I think I'm having a harder time accepting this then I did for when I turned 30.

It's scary. To be frank and a little macabre, you have to start planning for end of life stuff. There is a lot I have yet to do with my life. But to be planning old people stuff, its scary.

How much longer am I going to live? How can I do this the healthiest that I possibly can? Should I buy life insurance for my other half and I? How can I increase our retirement savings. (Going on a cruise a couple times a year is not helping with that savings.) At what age should I sign up for AARP?

I had one friend die of Pancreatic cancer this past year. It hit him hard and sadly fast. I had another friend in November pass due to complications with pneumonia and his diabetes. I seen him in the store a week or two before he passed and he was out of it. I googled both their names when I did n…

10 Reasons to Book Me for a Wine Tasting!

10 Reasons to Book Me for a Wine Tasting!

When it comes to wine, I know you have a lot of choices. I’ve made my career in the wine industry, so I want to be sure that you make the right choice when it comes to choosing a consultant for a wine tasting. That choice would be me, naturally!

Reason #10: When was the last time you had a fun night IN with your friends? Everyone gets excited about a night OUT, but there’s really nothing better than drinking wine with your friends and knowing you don’t have to drive home!

Reason #9: Where else can you get 6 great bottles of wine for just $29.95 (plus tax and shipping)? And just to be clear, I’m talking about G-R-E-A-T wine, not “bottom-of-the-shelf-guaranteed-headache” wine.

Reason #8: Laugh with your friends while I teach you how to “volatize your esters!” No, it doesn’t mean what you just imagined… I’m not that kind of wine lady!

Reason #7a, #7b & #7c: Wine. Cheese. Chocolate. You get the picture.

Reason #6:  You get to keep all the leftover wine[1]

Reason #5: Two words: wine nachos. Yep, you’re reading that right – you haven’t lived until you’ve nibbled on my wine nachos. Book me for August and I will bring you some of my famous, gooey, cheesy, warm and spicy WINE NACHOS. Gents, I’m already taken so don’t get any funny ideas. These nachos are so good they have been known to drive men insane. Just ask my husband.

Reason #4: Don’t have enough wine glasses? No sweat! I’ll bring enough for everyone. Worried that your house is too messy? Just vacuum a path from the front door to the kitchen and your friends will be happy, I promise.

Reason #3: When you host a tasting, I’ll give you a Complimentary Bottle with your order, plus half off Whine Club so you can complain when – Oh wait – that was supposed to be WINE Club. Half off WINE CLUB. But heck, you can call me and dish anytime you like!

Reason #2: Do you know how many bubbles are in a glass of sparkling wine? I’m going to share this and more great information when we gather for the tasting (whether or not you remember it the next day is up to you…).
