Mmmm, tastes like summer! And it paired well with yard sales and kiddie pools. Speaking of which, what are your secrets to get all the people to a yard sale??! My dad is getting ready to move out of state, and I'm located near more traffic than he is. So we are thinking we can have a yard sale here - but I wanna make a dent in all the stuff he's hauling over!! Tell me all your secrets. Camping gear, horse gear, knick knacks..... He's lived there (on 5 acres) for 15ish years now? So I'm imagining there is a lot of stuff. 😳 Now its off to bed - cheers!!! . #strongbow #rosécider #yardsaleday #winegirl #dayinthelife #vineonamission #winenot ?
Ahhh I love summer nights! I built us a fire pit a few years ago, and it has been exceptionally useful in making some of THE best s'mores I've ever enjoyed! Here we sit, on the back deck, listening to my husband teach the kids to drum, with a bit of #onehopewine #gewürztraminer - funding support for families of people with rare diseases ❤ an ideal summer evening with our favorite next door neighbors! What is your favorite summer tradition? . #globalgenes #rarediseaseawareness #pitthopkinssyndrome #whatdoesyourwinedo ?? #indulge #dogood #winenot ? 🍷❤ #vineonamission
That feeling when you get so excited about new events and pumped about new partnerships - and then drive in a 20 minute circle because you don't know the roads as well as you thought... Bahahaha!!! Whoops! 😂 . #whatdoesyourwinedo #giveback #winelife #viaONEHOPE #vineonamission #impact #winenot
Ahhh, summer evenings on the deck... #ONEHOPE #redblend pairs well with girl talk - and scolding the toddler. #momlife Loved the chance to catch up with you, @christinalnemeth 😘🍷 Isn't it great when people just pop back up in your life after a few years away?! This summer I have really wanted to focus more on relationships, and quality time with people. Reflecting back on June and July, I think that has been pretty well done! Always room for improvement though, so August, here I come! What has your theme been this summer? Or this year overall? Tell me about your focus! . #summernights #winelife #winepairing #californiaredblend #teamrubicon #onehopewine #whatdoesyourwinedo #viaONEHOPE #vineonamission
#aquafest2018 day 1 is in the books! I'm so thankful @theresalynnmayer suggested we share a space - drink the wine, whiten the teeth! Great combo! And right next door is Joanne with H2O @ Home! I love the relationships that have grown through events like this!! @burlinc grabbed the FIRST goodie bag for claiming a tasting date! Woohoo! We will be raising money for her PTA in September ☺ Love my teacher friends ❤🍷 Now its off to bed to be up early for tomorrow - 10am to 9pm, bring it on!!! 😁 Hope to see some of you there!!!! . #lakestevens #hometown #shindig #Aquafest #vendor
#ONEHOPE #merlot pairs well with #DIY projects 😂 and the packing material makes great paint stands! This is the gliding bench seat from next to our front door, for those who have been over before. I've wanted to do this project for years! I've even had this paint sitting on a shelf for like 4 years 😂 My fantastic hubby is sitting outside, sanding down every board. Then I get to paint! The metal frame needs some love too, but I'm hopeful that we will have it complete and put back out in the next couple days! As usual, I underestimated how extensive this would be... 😏 Actually, Rob is usually the one who thinks it'll be done quickly 😄 At least painting comes with built in #socialmedia breaks?! Bahahaha! . #diyhome #alwayschanging #homeimprovement #somanyprojects #viaONEHOPE #vineonamission #winepairing
I'm just gonna say, I EARNED this 6pm glass today 😂🍷 This past weekend, my dad, my brother and sis-in-law, and my bff totally came together and cared for our kids so that Rob and I could attend my grandma's funeral in Michigan. So when a girlfriend asked if I could watch her kiddos so she could get her hair did, I said, "oh sure why not!" Gotta pay forward those babysitter favors! So this afternoon, my 2 kids and regular Tuesday visitor were joined by 3 more, and BOY did we have fun! Played outside, ate allllll afternoon, watched Tangled, took out every toy from the toy box, ate some more, played in the sprinkler, and Alice literally just crawled into the chair with me and passed out 😴 She's still covered in dirt 😳 No, this did not in any way show me that I want more kids. Still done there. 😂 but we did have a good time!!!! 😁 What did you do to earn your #wine today?! . #adventuresofmomnanny #summer #afternoonfun #winetime #iearnedit #wesurvived #pnwsummer
I love trying #localbrews ! One more #minnesotabrew tonight while we wait for this flight... #fultonlonelyblonde - nice and light, good one to get us home. And yeah, I woulda loved to try a local #wine - but they didn't have any listed! #millcitytavern #mspairport #homewardbound #drinklocal #cheers #pastmybedtime #tomorrowsgonnaberough
Aaaand our connecting flight was delayed! 2+ more hours in this airport... And it wasn't just our flight! So cheers, with this #greatlakes #edmundfitzgeraldporter to all the others sitting here in the #minneapolisstpaulairport 🍻 . #delayedflight #atleastthisplaceisopen #nowayImsleepinghereanyway #adventure #datenight #localbrews #Minneapolis #porter #pastmybedtime #cheers
Well, I got home from #onehopecrush on Sunday, and on Monday, my grandma went to her eternal home. So here we are at the airport again, on our way to Michigan for her services ❤ Back in March, I shared a little for our trip back there for her 100th birthday. She lived a humble and quiet life, raising 7 kids and spending a lot of time volunteering. Grandpa was a pastor, and they lived in a few different states, ministering to small community churches. I'm so thankful Rob and I are able to make it this weekend to celebrate her life. Thankful for our village helping with the kids, the dog, and the house ❤ #SeaTacAirport #reasonswetravel #serveandcelebrate #lifewelllived #onehundredyears
Loved walking into our local #Applebees tonight and seeing this display raising funds for @alexslemonadestandfoundation 😍 I told the host, "I was just at a conference and heard Alex's mom speak!!" #onehopecrush 🍷💛🙌 . #alexslemonadestand #causepartner #viaONEHOPE #whatdoesyourwinedo #serveandcelebrate
Mmm, meal 3 of 3 in our #HelloFresh test order! Apricot chicken, potatoes and green beans. Paired nicely with #onehopewine #redblend 🍷 We may do this again in the future - it was nice to have a meal already all prepared! Maybe this will be the kick in the pants I need to actually #mealprep in the future 😖😄 Lol! Have you done HelloFresh yet? What did you think? Are you a regular subscriber?
What do I control? What do I have influence on? What is out of my control? Three very important questions to check in with ourselves about on a regular basis! I have definitely struggled with anxiety throughout my life. Putting expectations on myself, and then letting negative self talk convince me that I'll never achieve those levels of... Whatever it happens to be! Homemaker extraordinaire, suave and charming professional, scheduled and calculated timekeeper... Yikes! Soooo many hats! And all places where I have found myself lacking. I'm finding balance as I go, and have made definite improvements even in the past year! Its so important to acknowledge the positive, even while working on improving where we lack. What is your approach to self check in? How often do you evaluate where you're at and where you want to be? #selfimprovement #balance #alwaysimproving #notdoneyet #workingtowardsuccess #viaONEHOPE #vineonamission
What a weekend!!!! It's too early for me to form all the things I want to share - and I'm not caffeinated enough yet. Ready to be home with my husband and kiddos but I'm so grateful for the opportunities that we have with this incredible company. Over the next week or so, I'll share some of the stories we were told, the people we heard from, and what we get to look forward to. . #viaONEHOPE #makeanimpact #vineonamission #homegrownheroes #onehopecrush
Well last night was amazing! Fancy dinner, awards, followed by a dance party - can't get better than that! Oh, and it followed a day of speakers and info that caused as many tears as it did laughs. I'll share more over the next several days, but wow. Just an incredible first day of #onehopecrush . And now we get to get up and do it again!!! Holy Moses I need coffee though... 😴 . #crush2018 #viaONEHOPE #fancypants #sleepymama #needacoffeeIV
