Wine tasting & Sunday night thoughts

Oh Sunday evening at 8:45pm I loathe you as Monday quickly descends upon us.

Over the past week I've started to feel as though I'm getting stuck in a rut. Things at work have gotten interesting, to say the least and I'm going to leave it at that. Perhaps as I approach my 29th birthday next month I'm also simultaneously freaking out over the fact that 30 is knocking on my door. I hate the idea of getting older (although much, much better than the alternative) and I hate not knowing what's going to come my way next. I feel vulnerable and on edge and that's really not a way I like to live; as a creature of habit I feel like I'm a snail without a shell.

To say that I feel stuck between a rock and a hard place in more than one situation would be an understatement.

I think I might do something like cut my hair soon to hopefully give myself a bit of a boost. I'm trying to be better with money and impulsive spending. If anyone has any ways that they cheer themselves up when feeling down let me know, I'd love to hear it!

But enough of the debbie downer stuff. This weekend we celebrated a friend's birthday by going wine tasting in Napa. The weather was perfect and we had a great time... some photos below. :)

Wineries in Napa you should visit (only because I liked them!)
V Sattui Winery - awesome marketplace and outdoor bbq area (oysters, anyone?) and tastings inside.
Peju Winery - if you enjoy reds, go here
Mumm Napa - lots of bubbly with a fantastic view of the vinyards

  2. Laura, having just turned 50 I can tell you the best is yet to come!

    Having said that, these rock and hard place situations are usually the universe's way of forcing us to make decisions. You likely know what to do, it will suck momentarily to do it and then you will likely feel much better? Good luck!

  3. Gorgeous pictures! Wine tasting is always a good way to cheer yourself up! I know the feeling of being unsatisfied or frustrated with work. I think most people feel that at one time or another. Also, I had a similar anxiety over turning 30. Now that I am almost 32, I feel like that anxiety passes and you realize that it's just a number. Not sure how I'll feel about 40 though...but that's a long ways off!
