wine for wisdom

One of the cornerstones of my hometown is the local college — of which I’m a proud alum. Each year, the college’s foundation holds various fundraising events to raise money for scholarships. The biggest and (in my opinion) best one, Wine for Wisdom, was a couple of weeks ago and my sister-from-another-mister, Katie {the hottie blonde in photo #1} invited me along as her date.

My dear friend, Lauren {gorgeous lady in blue} chaired the event this year. Lauren’s kind of a rockstar event planner, and with the help of host committee and corporate sponsors, she did a phenomenal job of transforming the college’s gymnasium into a down-under wonderland. It was a magical evening of Australian wine and a four-course food pairing that made me feel like Padma Lakshmi. I love this town of mine.

No koalas were harmed in the making of this post. Several bottles of wine were killed, however. Thanks for always being a fabulous date, Kate!

    Where did you friends get their lace dresses from? I’m looking for something similar to wear to a wedding in a few weeks.

  • Some days I have my sh*t together; some days I have to get ready to go out to dinner on my office floor with a mirror propped against the wall.
  • Can’t make a downtown Bartow delivery without popping into @rafanatural’s beautiful shop to restock my coconut bar soap stash; ‘Relaxation’ for me, ‘Sandalwood’ for the husband. 🛁 #shopsmall #shoplocal #rafanatural
