Friends are an important, crucial part of life. To me, I rely on my husband, my family... my cat Rosie, and my friends. I am lucky for those that I have and thankful for the friendship they bring to my life. Even though life gets busy, tough, and overwhelming at times I know my true friends are always there for me.

Wow. It's been a while since I've typed away at my blog. Between all the other things out there (Facebook, Myspace, reality) I find myself on many different sites. It's amazing how fast time flies.
My latest and greatest news is my new business! Northwest Wine Source. My sister, Diana, and I bought this business from a friend that moved away. We were afraid to even speak about it until it was final and we had a liquor license as we didn't know if it would happen. After 8 pain staking months of paperwork, saving money, background checks, etc, we are finally starting! Our website will be up in January as the company has several other projects ahead of us. So, you may ask yourself, what is Northwest Wine Source? We are your local wine specialists. We focus on hand selecting excellent NW wines that you don't typically find in the grocery store or that you may be hesitant to pick out because you don't know the quality. Thus far, we have visited over 20 wineries to expose ourselves to the winemakers and know where they are coming from. We will have wine tasting events, parties, and sell special orders and monthly wine clubs. I am so excited for this new venture, so on top of my full time job I now have my side business that I can't wait to explore even more.
Not only has this business venture brought my sister and I closer but it has opened me to a whole new world and passion for wine. Sometimes I fall in love with smelling the wine that I know I may love it before I even sip it. I can't wait to share this passion with my friends and family.
