I am headed to LA/Temecula this weekend. It is not my first time in the Southern California Wine Region, but it will be my first time heading there to taste wine.

Just a few minutes ago, two wine friends posted an article called “Why Do I Write About Wine?” by Evan Dawson, a wine writer and news reporter with the New York Cork Report, etc.
I have never met Evan, nor am I connected to him directly via Twitter or on Facebook, but I had to check the article out. That is where I read what I will now consider my favorite quote about wine:”Wine is food, and food is life, and life is about the connections we make.”
This quote imbibes everything that I love about being a part of the wine, food, and/or Sonoma County industry. Wine, beer, sparkling bubbles and food is life. And life is definitely about the connections and laughs we create. I need to print this quote up and frame it in my kitchen… Right after I friend Evan on Facebook!
If only it was that easy for the rest of us….

Now that I am a pseudo-dog owner because of Jeff Bull and his two lil’ brats – Macey the Yorkie and Jackson (pictured) the Morkie I have been paying more attention to dog-friendly wineries, restaurants, events and things to do around Sonoma and Napa Counties.
Pawsport Napa Valley is an event that is more than just an adorable name – it is a benefit for the Napa Valley Humane Society and wine tasting in Napa the weekend of March 23-26.
Proceeds from Pawsport Napa Valley will support Napa Humane and its programs and services to fulfill their ongoing mission to promote the welfare of companion animals through protection, advocacy, education, and by example.
Pawsport Napa Valley passes are $75 per person and include complimentary tastings at participating wineries, along with a variety of special retail offers, library tastings, food and wine pairings and other activities and events only available to Pawsport Napa Valley pass holders.
If tweeting, remember to use the hashtag #Pawsport!

According to my Pinterest “cravings” board, I love cooking and fall vegetarian foods ~ pumpkin, squash, broccoli, chickpeas, kale ~ anything orange, yellow and green. According to my eating habits, I love cheese and I eat out much more than I should. I look forward to the day when the my food dreams become my real-life eating habits!
