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…

Fly Lady of the Day
Teen Pilot Kimberly Anyadike

Kimberly Anyadike is so fly because she can fly. The 15-year-old wonder became the youngest black woman to fly a plane transcontinentally. She left Compton, CA on June 29 for Newport Beach, VA. She was joined by another pilot and a Tuskegee Airman. Anyadike trained through Tomorrow's Aeronautical Museum (TAM) in Compton. TAM has broken other youth pilot records. I met the founder a few years ago and he is very passionate. Go here to learn more about this organization. They really teach the kids that regardless of race and class, they can achieve sky high dreams and beyond.

We're proud of you Kimberly Anyadike. Keep soaring sista. Keep soaring.

  1. Hello-
    I saw your comment on my blog and I just read your blog post!

    I agree with everything that you have to say about interracial dating! For me, interracial dating wasn't really too much of a problem (considering that while I was growing up, my mother's boyfriend was white) but it's really crazy to see the other responses I get when people see me doing it! ESPESCIALLY since the majority of black men on the UCSD campus STAY dating interracially!!

    Anywho- I hope you're enjoying yourself!

    PS- That girl is so adorable! And talented!!!
