Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday! If you're like me, Friday is one of your favorite days. The day before the weekend brings so much excitement and energy. For the last several weeks, I've been running around (quite literally) and really not stepping back to enjoy life's little moments.

So, when Wente Vineyards asked me to share my own personal journey, I had so much to share!

For some background, Wente Vineyards recently launched their #LoveOfTheJourney initiative, celebrating the brand’s heritage and story. Their family – and brand – focuses on the reason behind why they make wine – because they had a passion and love for it.

Thinking about it more and more, I'm so busy with the day to day, that I actually don't step back enough to really enjoy the things I love. It's challenging for me to at times pause for five minutes, read a coffee table book (this one from SF Girl By Bay is amazing!) and sip a glass of wine – all without checking my phone.

Wente's initiative is a great reminder that having goals, doing things and living your life in the moment is great, but it doesn't mean much when you're hurrying from one thing to the next. Taking half an hour to read, to take time to yourself, to blog, etc. should be encouraged!

So, this Thursday I came home after work, relaxed with a glass of Chardonnay and read a few books. It was perfect way to enter the weekend, that's for sure.

So, what's your journey and what's your "thing" when you need to take a step back? I'd love to know!

Thank you to Wente Vineyards for partnering on this post and helping me think of ways that I, too, can focus on #LoveOfTheJourney! Learn more about Wente on their Facebook page and Twitter.

Happy Friday!
