Well hellooooooooooo middle of August. Thank you so much for joining us.
But seriously, where did the last month go?? It basically went to several fun New Things happening in our lives.
Well, for one thing, it went to my new workplace (!!!).
I started a few weeks ago working for Ram’s Gate Winery in Sonoma, which has kept me hopping with some fun new things, like working on the blog and other Social Media, and working in the Tasting Hall one day, as well. I LOVED it. The extrovert in me was so energized.
I also got to help Cody’s and my dear friend Angela launch her new wine site, Angels + Thieves, which will be an online wine boutique, but for now is a cool site and blog.
New thing #3 is that I just moved the good ol’ blog over to WordPress. Bye bye, Blogger! I thought it was a good change, and I just did the same thing with the Ram’s Gate Winery blog, so I knew how to do the switch (it’s pretty simple), so here we are.
With my winery schedule, I’ve been working Wednesdays-Sundays with Mondays and Tuesdays off. I LOVE it so far. Nothing cures a case of the Mondays better than waking up and not having to go to work – plus, especially during harvest, I love getting to do the Housewife thing, cleaning and organizing and menu-planning and grocery shopping and cooking (I know, warn the fire department).
And that brings us to New Thing #4: it’s almost harvest time again! Cody’s harvest is a little different this year, since he and the Bedrock guys are still finishing everything up in their new winery. But he still got to spend one night last week actually sleeping at a vineyard, overseeing the pick starting at 2am, and driving the grapes to the winery.
And that is a quick summary of what the heck has been happening and why I’ve been so quiet on the blogging front lately. More soon!
