Blogging...Round Two!

It's been nearly two years since I first started and last wrote on this blog, which I am very embarrassed about, and am ready to start a new. I've been reading lots of blogs lately from some great ladies that have inspired me to give this thing another go. Will and my mom were always constant supporters of my blog and saddened to see me abandon it, as was I. However, this time around I want to be more diligent about posting, even if it's just to post new inspirations. The full proof way for me to do this is to start with baby steps and schedule time for me to work on my blog. By baby steps, I mean I will start with a dedication to posting at least one post per week on my days off, Sunday and/or Monday. Okay enough of the nitty gritty, now for a little info about myself:
Hello all of you out in cyber-land!
I am 26 years old and live in Portland, Oregon with my boyfriend of nearly four years, Will, and our spry dog, Cassidy. She was actually named after Neil Cassady, of the beat generation, but we ended up misspelling the name!

I work in the wine industry, which I grew an affinity for three years ago. If you happened to read one of my first posts, it was about a job interview for Bergstrom Wines, well I am happy to report I did get that job! I am Assistant Tasting Room Manager and organize private tastings and food pairings at the winery, along with floral and event design/planning. I am working towards my sommelier certification and am a major wine geek.

Aside, from wine I am passionate about good food and enjoy cooking for Will and myself often. I am kind of a hostess with the mostest when it comes to food, wine and cocktails. I am also a nerd when it comes to my collection of vinyl records! Prior to entering the wine field I wanted to be a music journalist. Despite the career change, I am still a huge music fan and enjoy going to shows, shopping for vinyl and making my friends and family mix cds. I've also been known to devote my time to decorating our home and reading blogs on other musings including design, fashion, food and art.

So, here's to my second round at blogging...I hope you enjoy reading and wish me luck!
