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…

Tramaine Hawkins "Changed"

Tramaine Hawkins is one of my favorite gospel singers. Not only because she is from the Bay like moi, but the sista can SANG. Hawkins performed this version of "Changed" back in 1990 for her Tramaine Hawkins Live album. I think this concert took place at the Paramount Theater in Oakland. The album earned her a much-deserved Grammy. Watch the video below and you'll see why. Have a blessed day and week Cocoa Fly Readers.

  1. Tramaine Hawkins is one of the most under-rated singers out there with, arguably, one of the most exceptional voices of any genre. She's always been one of my favorites. Thanks for posting.
