Cheers! My Birthday Celebration with the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours

After losing my grandmother a few weeks before my birthday, I really needed to celebrate life. I know she would want me to do that. This year, I decided to ring in a new year of life in wine country. My soror traveled up from So Cal to visit. This would be her first time in Napa. I didn’t want to drive so instead, we bought bus tickets for the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours.

Let me tell you something, going on this bus tour was one of the BEST decisions I made. The Napa Valley Wine Country Tours bus isn’t just any bus. It’s a limo bus that looks like a VIP club lounge on wheels. We paid $119 for an 8-hour trip, visit to 4 wineries in Sonoma and Napa counties, continental breakfast and lunch. It was worth every penny. The tastings aren't covered in the bus fare, but they ran about $10-$25. Wineries won't charge you for tastings if you buy a bottle. I recommend this for tourists and any Bay Area locals who have folks visiting from out of town and want a short excursion to Nap…

My Interview with Iyanla Vanzant on Losing Her Home

As I mentioned a few weeks ago I spoke with Iyanla Vanzant about losing her home. You can read the interview on The Root. Feel free to leave your reactions there and on my blog. It's a good interview. Vanzant was honest and open. I know a lot of people are going through hard times because of this economy. I'm struggling too. When she announced at the State of the Black Union that her home went into foreclosure I wanted to know what happened. She was filled with hope and confidence that she would survive this ordeal, I thought the interview would be informative and uplifting for people in similar situations. Thanks for reading and for all those people new to Cocoa Fly. Welcome!!
