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…

Getting to Happy Takes Work
My Blogher Book Review of Terry McMillan's Novel

Another Blogher Book Review from yours truly. This time I give my spin on "Getting to Happy," Terry McMillan's sequel to "Waiting to Exhale." The book received mixed reviews. I like the novel. McMillan's story shows that happiness is not easy to attain. You could be rich, have a fine ass man, angels for children, nice clothes and be praised all of the time. But, that doesn't equate to happiness. For some of us it may. I don't want to give away too much of my review, but read on here.
