A Year of Wine

Over the last year I have taken on the exciting challenge of learning all about wine. Not to be confused with learning to whine or practicing my ability to whine. Although, I must confess; there were times that I did whine before, during and after consuming wine. Wine. Oh yes, wine, wine, wine. One of… Continue reading A Year of Wine

As a budding adolescent who would like to express herself and spread her wings I am allowing her some freedom to put herself out into the world (in moderation and… Continue reading Taylor’s Voice
