The littlest things make me giggle.
I hope you all know that when you check back and there isn’t a new post it is never because I’m leaving you high and dry. Quite the opposite. I think about Blue Lollipop Road 24 hours a day. I have since the day I started it (and we are coming up on 2 year anniversary! Wahoo!)
Since deciding to stay in Napa 10 days ago (that is a story I still have to share too.) I’ve been networking, meeting, interviewing, working, organizing, feasting and running (as in jogging) my butt off. I’ve been the best kind of slammed busy. I at least wanted to sit down, say hi and give a teaser until I have some more catch up time this weekend. Just a few things out of the pile about these past yummy 10 days.
1.) Chowed down and hung out at a 2nd annual chili cook-off/Bocce Ball Tournament with a crew of new friends here. Bocce is the thing to do around the parts. Where else in the world would you have items on the wide open and shared picnic table like southwest braised lamb chili and cheddar scallion skillet cornbread accompanied by delicious wine mostly made by the people who there that were playing?
2.) I went to/worked at the Mighty Summit last Friday. Yeah; awesome. The top lifestyle bloggers and women in media were there. Big time funny, smart, and accomplished chicks who take social media to a whole new level. One in attendance bought a cat years ago from the animal hospital a mile from my parents house in Vermont. I love random connections.
3..) Off to this castle tonight to work at an event with my friend and now new roommie. I’m sure sipping some wine too. Yes, it really looks like this. Yes, all of Napa looks like this. I’m still waiting for someone to yell “That’s a wrap guys!” -and roll the scenery away as if it’s a movie set. GORGEOUSNESS everywhere.
The above is just a measly taste of my past 2 weeks here.. That means I’m in the right place for this point in my life. It was a 9k mile drive to get here, and what a treat at the end. Can you believe I have finally caught a clue at 32? Pay enough attention to myself, go where feels right and take advantage of all that’s offered and it’s like ping ping ping with awesomeness falling in my lap. Oh the learning curve.
I like it.
I like it a lot.
Off to unpack the rest of my car and hit the showers. What to wear to the castle…
