Two Wine Reviews: Chloe Merlot And Martin Codax Ergo Rojo Red Blend

*this is not a sponsored post

Being a lover of wine, specifically RED wine, I laughed when I spotted this quote online by one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, Benjamin Franklin. 

Apparently. he loved wine too...

Over the past few months I've tried several different wines. If you're anything like me, you have certain go to wines that become your staples, but you also enjoy branching out and experimenting at times.

Pattie - March Of A Penguin

In addition to squirrels, I'm sure many of you also know about my love of penguins.

And I love them for many reasons.

I love them first and foremost because I think they're just so damn cute. I've always thought that penguins look as though they were born wearing a tuxedo. And I always have the urge to place a little black top hat on their heads; hand them a cane; and watch them tap dance to Puttin' on the Ritz...

I also love them because they prefer colder temperatures and enjoy SNOW, like I do.

Christmas Isn't A Season, It's A Feeling

I adore Christmas!

And much of that has to do with how much my parents adored it; making Christmas such a special and memorable time for our family.

Even at my age, I still feel the same as I did when I was a kid, happy and excited as Christmas draws near. And it has nothing to do with giving and receiving presents because quite frankly, I don't do much of that. It's mainly about how I feel this time of year. I don't exactly know how to explain it, other than I feel a childlike tickle inside my heart that fills me with a sense of joy, wonderment, and believing.

Christmas In New York City And My Celebrity Spotting

Earlier this week (Monday) I had the immense pleasure of going into New York City for a work-related training. Back in October when my boss asked me if I would like to go, I immediately said, "Hell, yes!" I mean anytime I get the chance to visit New York....I'm there!

The day ended up being absolutely smashing! The company I was training with went out of their way to make our experience so enjoyable - it was not only very informative, but also a ton of fun. All I kept saying over and over again throughout the day to the corporate staff was, "Thank you...thank you SO MUCH for this experience!"

I came back to my job on Tuesday, all jazzed and excited; feeling recharged!

While in NYC, we were busy sticking to a schedule because we had a lot to see and do, so I didn't get the chance to take many photographs during the day. However, I purposely booked my return trip home for several hours after the training so that I would have time to casually walk around the city and take in New York's Christmas decorations.
