Laurita Winery OktoberFest 2019

October 11, 2019

An afternoon of food, fun, and lots of locally made sangria at the Laurita Winery OktoberFest with food trucks, fire pits, live music, and more!

Why I’m Not Choosing a Word of the Year this Year

January 1, 2019

I Will Persevere

January 2, 2018

Life certainly comes with its share of twists and turns.  When I thought about my word for 2018, I thought about how I’ve gotten SO much better with stressful issues that come my way.  Usually, I find myself completely losing it and barreling towards a mental breakdown.  But like Vanilla Ice said, “If you got a problem, yo, I’ll solve it.”  So this year, I’m going to persevere.  I’m going to push through every ounce of bullshit that comes my…
