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…

Sigma Gamma Rho Turns 90 and I'm Off to Celebrate

We have two big celebrations planned, one in Los Angeles and another in Indianapolis. Our sorority was founded at Butler University in Indy by seven black educators. But one of our founders, Mary Little,  is buried in Inglewood at an unmarked grave. We're going to honor her and give her a proper headstone. Anyone who has tried to start a business knows it isn't easy. Can you imagine not only starting an organization that has lasted 90 years but has grown to 90,000 members?  That's amazing.

I'm looking forward to celebrating this milestone and returning to LA. This is my first time back to LA since moving. I can't wait to see my friends.

 In keeping with our 90th celebration, do something for you this weekend! Why not celebrate something in your life--a job, happiness, new hairstyle, or just yourself. It doesn't have to be big. Do something for you and honor your achievement, no matter how big or small. Have a great weekend everyone!
