A visit to Ram’s Gate Winery and a review of their Pinot Blanc 2013

Last month I spent a fabulous and fun five days in San Francisco and Wine Country with my friend Kathryn, who is currently living there.  Our plan was to eat, hike (walk if I am truly honest here), drink wine and repeat.  El Nino was against us and torrential windy rain ruined the hiking (walking) part of this trip.  Darn that weather :).  So, we had to find something to replace the hiking part of our trip.  If you guessed Uber from winery to winery, we are going to become very fast friends. Our first stop was at Ram’s...

A new kitchen without breaking the bank

When I bought my condo a little less than two years ago, I immediately fell in love with it.  It was hard to keep a poker face in front of the realtor because I absolutely knew after looking at more than 100 places and feeling a little jaded, this was it, this was the one I wanted.  I kept my face straight and my friends, a realtor and a broker took over.  I tell you these two women could rule the world.  Within five weeks I was the owner of my fabulous little home near Castle Island.  Before moving...

Funday Sunday

My whole plan this weekend was to catch up on work and run.   That did not happen – not even a little bit.  I really don’t want to feel guilty about it either but I do, just a little.  The work part not the running.  Why? Anyway, I met my friend Rob for brunch on Sunday at around 11am.  We decided on Union Bar & Grille (now closed) on Washington.   It was incredibly fortuitous that as we walked in we spotted a table in the bar area and we quickly parked our butts before anyone else grabbed it.  There was practically a line going out...

The Lookout Rooftop & Bar at The Envoy Hotel

The Labor Weekend kept me in Boston this year.  It was a decision made from the fact that I have just not stopped work and travel wise and needed a break on my home turf.  However, every time I do this, I start to panic about what I am going to do when I get bored with my own company, which happens very quickly.  I am a people person and enjoy the connection to others.  It’s not that I can’t have a good time alone; I just prefer to be with others.  It would seem this weekend I had nothing at...

Head to Post Office Square to enjoy your weekday lunch

When our office moved over to the Seaport area of the Financial District, I promised myself I would go out as much as I could and enjoy the outdoors during my lunch hour, even if it was only for 20 minutes.  It didn’t happen, I bought or brought lunch to my desk, sat in front of it and worked almost every day. The winter hit and I could have kicked myself as the misery of actually being trapped in sunk in.  So, I just worked and worked whether imprisoned at home because of snow emergencies or stuck in the...
