Weekend Recap: Misty Meadow Mountain and Vail Beer Festival

Friday was my company’s annual promotion day, where all the promotions for the year are announced, and we celebrate. This year, we were still obviously not doing an in-person celebration, but our local office arranged for a magician to perform on Zoom (and he was phenomenal, – I wasn’t expecting much over Zoom, but it was awesome!), and the national organization arranged for Keith Urban to perform. I haven’t really listened to much Keith Urban in a while, but I got {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Hiking, Eating, and Drinking My Way Through the Mountains

My weekend kicked off a little bit early – my date and I headed to Minturn on Thursday night, stopping at Outer Range Brewing for fried chicken sandwiches on the way up, and then worked from there on Friday. I had a really light day of meetings, and it was nice to get a change of scenery while digging into some deep work! My original plan on Friday morning was to do an early morning run of Meadow Mountain before {Read More}

Review: Teneral Cellars Pride Collection

This post was sponsored by Teneral Cellars as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. You may remember that a few months ago, I did a review of Teneral Cellars RBG wine collection. Since that post, I ended up ordering a case of the Dissent zinfandel – both to drink myself on special occasions, and to give as gifts. I have been following Teneral Cellars closely since discovering them, {Read More}

What I Read in May 2021

Eight books read in May – I am picking up steam a bit! I stuck to almost exclusively fiction in May, with one non-fiction self-help-y book thrown in. (Though there were several historical fiction novels… so maybe that counts for something?) These days, I am finding the compelling storylines of novels to keep me reading much more than nonfiction. 5 stars: The Book of Lost Names, by Kristin Harmel: I picked this up on a night I intended to go {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Double Dog Date Weekend

My work day on Friday ended in an excellent way – with a wine tasting! I had a pretty frenetic work day up until then, but it was really nice to know that there was a hard stop to the day. This event had fifty people, and I did a class on the basics of wine tasting, then we tasted a variety of Coppola wines. I had actually visited the Coppola winery when I went to Sonoma years ago, and {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Accidental Long Hike

Friday was a super hot day, so I worked from the basement all day. But in the evening, I had something fun planned – a happy hour on the deck at my friend Chris’ house! It ended up actually being still hot in the evening, and while I had initially thought maybe I’d go over and just have water, I ended up drinking almost an entire bottle of wine… oops! So much for my plan to not drink. But I {Read More}
