Good morning everyone!
I cannot believe that in just a few days it will officially be 2019! This past year has been quite a year for me and I am feeling so blessed by all of the new adventures I have had. The biggest one having been moving my whole life to beautiful Napa Valley. Even though I grew up in NorCal, I never had any plans of ever living in Napa until an opportunity presented itself in my career path to make the move and next step. I am so happy I took that leap of faith to a new town, community and job. I am so blessed and grateful to everyone who has welcomed me into this amazing community.
About nine months ago I had the discussion with one of my good friends about the idea to start “Bordeaux Blonde” and to start writing and sharing my experiences here in Napa and my journey overall. I thank her and everyone who supported me in making the decision to start my own blog and to turn my instagram off “private” and begin sharing my experiences. This was an even bigger step for me to open my world to everyone and to share more and more about myself, to a community I have never met. This has been such a blessing as I have met some pretty great people in this wine instagram world who have become dear friends.
In the beginning, and even now to be honest, I had no idea where this would take me and what it would look like to have a blog in the wine world. Almost every weekend my friend and I would try to go to different wineries and try to learn as much as we could about wine and the entire process. I had always loved wine, but this is when my passion grew and I wanted to share so other knew more about Napa. I love giving recommendations to people traveling to Napa for the first time or even if it is their 100th trip. There are over 500-600 wineries just in Napa so there are definitely a lot to choose from!
As this year is coming to an end I can’t help but look back and feel grateful for all of the opportunity and support I have received. I am very excited for this upcoming New Year and for some new adventures! This year I want to continue to grow “Bordeaux Blonde” in the wine community but also to expand it to include more of my other interests and passions, so stay tuned!
Cheers everyone to 2019!
