Make Your Easter Celebration Sparkle

Many thanks to Michelle for including me with these far more experienced writers. She asked for an accessible California sparkler and, of course, J was the first thought. News of the Gallo takeover after I’d reviewed which was disappointing. I hope they are able to maintain their family feel.
I’m excited to be joining our church family in serving the city’s homeless population. If you are in Austin and would like to help, let me know. If you are not in Austin, you can still contribute by sending a pair of shoes for our shoe drive. Message me for more info.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday with loved ones. Cheers!

The tenacity needed to keep the family dream alive, the risk to start anew, the trials and principles. I love the history of the vine, the impact of a season, the sentiment in the bottle. That is why I write. I write to tell their stories, to share a piece of mine. I write to learn as I teach others. I write to connect with new friends, to disconnect from the world. I write to celebrate what makes each of us unique, and that which ties us together.
