The year that was…

The year that was…

Reminiscing the year gone by, I’m overcome by a myriad of emotions. The good, the bad and the ugly were all wrapped up in one ginormous gift and handed to me. Life is but a roller coaster ride and we must run with the bulls, that I have learnt to do well. This past year, mistakes were made, lessons were learnt, steps were taken, descions were made, moved forward, wandered cities, laughed, lived and loved.  After all, memories are made of these!

Florida – Universal Studios: Wizarding World of Harry Potter in a DAY!

Florida – Universal Studios: Wizarding World of Harry Potter in a DAY!

“Alohomora” – The spell to open locks. For me, it was the opening of a Harry Potter book to being transported into this mystical world of magic and charm, of love and everlasting friendship, of Quidditch and tournaments, of good and evil, and of joy never ending. To date, it never bores me to read or watch a Harry Potter movie. It’s my happy place and it always will be! Continue reading “Florida – Universal Studios: Wizarding World of Harry Potter in a DAY!”

I look up thinking how beautiful nature made you, wondering at the sheer monstrosity of your ability to question my strength, my endurance, my inner voice!  Your face so high up in the clouds, looming over me, frightening me. I whisper to myself, “Can I do this?”. There is a tiny voice inside me urging me to go ahead, telling me I can do this. After all, I’ve been meaning to say “Hi!” for a while now. 🙂 Continue reading “The Mountains Are Calling: Hiking Mount Washington”

Story in a Bottle | Newport Vineyards

Story in a Bottle | Newport Vineyards

 

A thousand beautiful stories that strike a chord somewhere deep within you.
An aroma that awakens your tired soul.
A myriad tastes that linger on making you want for more.

All this behind a sip of finely crafted wine! The nuances that go into making each bottle of wine is beautiful to understand and to know. To be completely honest, I was never a wine aficionado. The more varieties of wine I had, the more  I began to appreciate it! There’s SO much to know about wine that it can be quiet intimidating to begin with. It was embarrassing to not be able to tell which wine goes with what types of food and growing up, I always imagined wine to be an “adult” drink (Don’t ask me what it means because right now I cant begin to explain it! 😉 😉 ). But as you go along, you can’t help but want to learn more about the art of wine making. What better way to start than to visit a vineyard and Newport Vineyards was our choice.
