Winner Winner Red Wine Dinner?

Enter to win trips to amazing places all over the world from @WineEnthusiast!!  Visit http://buyingguide.winemag.com/features/destinations/2013/contests to enter.

With my father’s new venture which is taking him deep into the wine industry, I find myself wishing I had more time to relax and enjoy the fruits of the earth (once fermented and aged appropriately, of course)!  These trips would greatly help!!!!

Things I’d want to do on these amazing trips:

  • Rioja, Spain - visit the gorgeous wineries, fill my belly with Michelin-star-caliber food, and visit the Dinastía Vivanco Museum of Wine Culture
  • Danube, Austria - I’d like to take a cruise down the river and see where Captain Von Trapp and his family sang in “The Sound of Music”
  • Monterey, California - Monterey is in such beautiful country.  I went as a child with my family, and we saw so much, but I obviously couldn’t partake in all the fun!  I’d love to visit as an adult to see the beautiful coastline again and watch a California sunset.  I’d also like to cross the Big Sur without being carsick this time (we got stopped on the bridge because they were filming a commercial up ahead… not a fun day).  Bernardus is one of my father’s favorite vinyards int he world, so I’d have to spend quite a bit of time taking in its beauty (and wine, of course).
  • Stellenbosch, South Africa (OMG) - 
  • Puglia, Italy


Lord, grant me the strength to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

I love UPS.

UPS is going to be at my house a lot in the next week … and I’m so excited.

Wednesday - these amazing shoes from Nordstrom 
Thursday - Mom’s Mother’s Day gifts (long story)
Friday - Richard’s birthday gift
Monday - Spanish flash cards (rock on!) 


I might have a slight obsession with mason jars.
