It’s a new year. There is finally some light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel. The adults in my household have all been vaccinated. Thank the baby Jesus, the Universe, and the scientists. Disneyland is about to reopen after being closed for more than a year. Royal Caribbean Cruise Line has announced a return to cruising the summer. And – best of all- my family has a much needed and anticipated Hawai’i vacation coming up in two weeks. There is just one itsy bitsy little problem. Folks, I look like a shoe.

If you know me, you know my that Pinot, Rosè, Chardonnay, and Cabernet are my BFFs. You’ll find them at my side during the good times and the bad. I celebrate promotions with Chardonnay, and Rose comforts me when my children make me want to stick a fork in my eye. I also like a good snack. I eat my feelings, and my feelings are made of carbs.
