A Lovely Day in The Life of Friends.  After a very rough week of working on some difficult deals, attending one too many meetings, politicking and presentations, and receiving some sad news that a dear friend suffered a heart attack, this gal is one tuckered girl.  Fortunately, today offered a little reprieve.  I had the luxury of relaxing in a limo with friends while touring some beautiful vineyards in Southern Oregon.  The sun was shining, the landscape was gorgeous and the company was engaging.  Thank you guys for bringing me out of my funk... love you!  A few pics of A Lovely Day in the Life of Friends.       It was a lovely day in the life of friends!

Sunset Magazine toasts to Southern Oregon Wineries!  Besides seeing an increase in tourist traffic each year, Southern Oregon Wineries are also seeing local, statewide, and national awards.  Sunset Magazine recently named Southern Oregon one of its top destinations for wine in 2010. The Southern Oregon Winery Association has more than 60 wineries on its list.  "There's no question, when we first bought this property, there were only a handful of tasting rooms. And now we are pushing 20 to 30 tasting rooms just in the area.
