Dear younger self:
While Fiji Water Girl was photobombing on the red carpet at the Golden Globes oh excuse me I mean “hydrating the stars”...I was celebrating my birthday with fun friends.
But girlfriend, these days of “me time” don’t just happen, they don’t just fall into my lap. Fighting with kids to wake up in the morning, teaching them to practice basic hygiene, to be kind and respect themselves first before they expect others to, are all everyday happenings! These are the issues that “fall from the sky” that you will need to learn how to navigate through!
But you have to keep refreshing yourself with the other joys of life! When you do this you pump gasoline back in your tank (unless you own a Tesla..then..well never mind)! Meanwhile back on Main Street @gabriellecollectiontasteplus
we were treated with a tasting of their handcrafted Cabernet Sauvignons that totally carried a distinctive point of view of Winemaker Gabrielle Leonhard O’Connell and her artistic twist on the vintage. Bob and RC took care of us like we were dignitaries (well we are all moms so same same) and Jonathan was workin’ his magic in the kitchen while whipping up fun unique bites that are authentically Napa. Like, their organic Lavender Parmesan Popcorn that was prepared with their buttery olive oil, and sprinkled with their lavender pepper, parmesan cheese and fresh lemon zest. Oh and I can’t forget their Goat Cheese Crostini, prepared with rosemary sea salt, rosemary honey, their unique burnt almond dust topped with a salad mixture with fresh rosemary, caramelized onions, cranberries, balsamic vinegar and a red wine reduction. Whoohoo that was a mouthful in more ways than one! But girl the coolest “out of nowhere surprise” was their white chocolate shot, say whaaatttt???? No I’m not the Fiji Water Girl, I don’t sip and brunch my way through the valley like the tourists do and don't own a Tesla. But for a minute in time the O'Connell family went out of their way to make this mama feel rejuvenating joy and Red Carpet ready. I'm so thankful!
