First Napa and now Southern California. Before that Houston. What’s going on in the states that I love? Ay caramba. Though I make it out to LA at least at a bare minimum 2x a year (and at one point it was so often that I even had a hairdresser in LA), the first time I made it out to Napa was just this year for one my dear beautiful friend’s extra beautiful engagement. It was perfect and gorgeous. I could have spent weeks there going from one winery to the next and, at night, I could have stared at the stars forever and ever.
It breaks my heart to see the fires in California. BUT! If there is one thing I have learned this year is that when you play with fire, you take risks that let you spread your wings and come out on top. I made foolish rash decisions this year. I’ve overcommitted to how many things I want to pursue in life (uh, book, blog, business, and two more ventures coming to you in 2018) and I’ve made some horrible financial mistakes. I am my own life’s version of the California wildfires.
That also means that I know Cali will be ok and come out on top because I am damn certain that I will be ok, and already act like I’m on top. Fake it till you make it, baby. So here’s to bouncing back – because we can and we will. At the very least, way, way, wayyyyy at the bottom of the list, for my ongoing need of a good glass of red (and a survival necessity now more than ever as a #girlboss-trepreneur).
