LOVE THE NORTH | Pass me the Veeno

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love a good glass of wine. White, red, rose if it’s a sunny day and I have my arm twisted…wine is just my favorite tipple! So when the magic of social media informed that there was a new wine bar opening in my home town, it was pretty […]

LOVE THE NORTH | Good Friends, and Good Pie and Peas

Sometimes we get so caught up in our day to day work lives that we forget to make time to catch up with old friends. But when we do, it is so worth it! Richard is one of my oldest friends – we went to school together, walked to school together every day for years, […]
