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…

I Don't Want a Man Who Only Texts Me

My thoughts are in the short video below:

I don't know who created this meme but I'm with them 100%. You can't get to know someone just through messaging. I can't tell you how many times I've given out my phone number to guys, only to discover they just want to text me. The same problem is with online dating. I'll give someone the digits so we can meet up and they'll stop messaging me. All that says to me is that he's playing, hiding something and is not taking getting to know me seriously.

A man who only texts is a sign of communication problems to come. I dated a guy who told me if possible, he would buy a smartphone for texting only and would disable the phone function. He hated talking on the phone. I learned down the line that he was a terrible communicator, and the relationship didn't work. 

Ladies, if he or she, is only messaging you, they're not serious. If all you want is messaging that's fine. But if you want something more, and they can't pick up the phone or meet you in person, they're not serious. In person and voice contact are priceless. We can't lose that in this digital age. 


  1. Girl YES! My husband didn't want to text me. He always wanted to talk on the phone! Haha; he thinks texting is inpersonal . That's when I knew he was def the one.

    1. Oooh girl you hit the jackpot!! Good for you. He wanted to communicate and he was SERIOUS about getting to know you.
