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…

We Are Because You Were
Dr. Dorothy Height 1912-2010

We are free, because you were not afraid to fight.

We are scholars, because you were passionate about equality in education.

We are lawyers, entrepreneurs, doctors, writers, scientists and more, because you were about the advancement of women.

We are powerful and beautiful because you were a warrior that had style (work that hat sista) and heart.

We are First Lady and one day POTUS, because you marched on Washington and met with presidents to demand change.

We have civil rights, because you were a leader of the movement.

We are praying for your family, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and the NCNW, because you were their gem, their sister, their leader.

We are not going to stop striving for justice, because you were a woman who didn't know the word "surrender."

We are here, because you were fearlessly, woman.

  1. I owe much to Ms. Height, not just because of her accomplishments in the Civil Rights Movement and with the National Council of Negro Women. I met Dorothy Height my senior year of high school, and she wrote a letter of recommendation for me to attend college. She was a wonderful woman who left an enduring legacy.
