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…

Feelin' So Good, but Missing J-Lo

I miss pre-Marc Anthony J-Lo. I know we all have to grow up, but I miss the Fly Girl, Jenny from the Block Jennifer Lopez. The sista could bust a serious move and sang over hard hip-hop beats. A great singer J-Lo is not but I loved her music. Since being Mrs. Marc Anthony and a mom, J-Lo has toned things down.
I'm still celebrating my birthday with some R&R. But I wanted to take a break from my break and post J-Lo's video "Feelin' So Good." I used to bump this song in college when I was getting ready in the morning for class and work. I was part of the 1% black population at UCSD and that was a heavy load to carry along with studies. But this song made me feel extra good about myself and got me through the day. I still play it today. "'Cause not one thing can bring me down. Nothing in this world, gonna turn me round
