Leaning Into Friends (Day Trip to Temecula)

No one would ever say I have a “resting bitch face.” I have the opposite of that. I’m the opposite – happy, positive, and friendly.

But it’s not what it seems and I too get tired and sad. My life sometimes feels like a romantic movie. Recently, I’ve struggled with some personal, existential stuff.

I was trying to distract myself from my problems by supporting my friends, but some of my closest people are dealing with big stuff too. As an empathetic person, it might not be the best mood as it was weighing me down.

Fortunately, I’m able to lean in to so many people and temporarily feel refreshed to be there for myself and my people.

Wedding (+1)

On Saturday, I accompanied my girl Lyndsay to a wedding. I like weddings and actually go to very few of them. 

I met lots of nice people and was undefeated in cornhole! Lynds curled my hair – I loved how it looked when I came home that night.

Wine Tasting in Temecula

I surprised my friend Kayla with a card, roses, and a trip to Temecula. Our first stop was Peltzer Winery – another friend told me about the barn-turned-winery that serves our favorite bread!



We I made conversation with everyone there. It was me in all my glory.


JC at Peltzer gave us a list of wineries and his friends at each one. We decided on Robert Renzoni Vineyards & Winery since they had a restaurant. Ask for Sabina, who said “Italian men are short but they have big c**ks” and wears Wet N Wild glitter eyeshadow.


It was a successful day in which we bonded, felt empowered by each other and just had a good time. I’m so grateful for the people in my life.
