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…

Do Something for YOU! Listen to Carlos Santana, Sing, Dance, WORK IT!

One of the best concerts I've been to is Santana at the House of Blues in Las Vegas. The House of Blues is in the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino on the Vegas strip. Oh. My. Oh. MY I had so much fun! And Carlos Santana still got IT.  When I'm at home and I need to pick up my spirits or I want to dance, I throw on Carlos Santana. His guitar takes my body all over the living room. And especially when I play "Smooth" featuring Rob Thomas. By the end of the song I'm sweating and feeling great. One time I was listening to Smooth on the BART train. I thought to myself, boy if there weren't people on this train and camera phones, I would get turnt up. LOL

I know people are going back to school but summer is still here. The sun is out. The weather is still warm/hot/scorching, depending where you live. Get some good music into your soul. Go to a concert in the park. Do the Nae Nae and Cupid Shuffle at your family barbecue. Heck, do it in the den with your family. Sing at a karaoke bar. Play some good music, roll the windows down in your car, and just cruise.

Have a great weekend and celebrate life!
