Photo of the Day: New York Central Park

20140226-174635.jpg

Brrr….it’s cold outside, but I captured a great photo so it’s ok if I freeze to death.

I ventured into the bitter cold of Central Park in the middle of a New York winter because I find the snow covered ground absolutely breathtaking, especially right before sunset.

Sadly since it was right before sunset, I didn’t get to wander too far into Central Park, but I was still able to get some good photos and get a nice breath of fresh air (and some numb fingers).

I’m a Florida girl and we don’t see sights like this, unless we travel out of state, so I was determined to take advantage of it.

Time to warm up…until next time 🙂

Photo of the Day: Feeling Brave

20140224-172320.jpg

That day I was feeling brave at Gatorland…maybe a little too brave. There was a trainer behind the camera, so I felt safe but several of my friends and family have told me never to get that close to a gator again.

My advice to anyone wanting to capture a photo like this…if you don’t want people to get upset with you for “putting your life at risk” then just get a photo from a little farther away. Like this one…

That’s all for now… until next time 🙂

Cheers to National Drink Wine Day!

Today, February 18, is national “drink wine” day!  I say…okay!  This is totally a holiday I can stand behind.

I’m enjoying a glass from my favorite bottle of wine, Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc.

It’s a refreshing wine packed with both citrus and fruity flavors, pairing perfectly with most foods.  The label says it pairs well with seafood, but me not being a fan of seafood, I have found that it pairs well with chicken, pasta, meats and even hot dogs.  Yes, I’ll admit it, I’m that classy person who is having a hot dog for dinner.  Hey, it’s easy.

I discovered Kim Crawford about five years ago and ever since it has been my favorite wine.  I love it so much my fiance will occasionally surprise me with a bottle…or 2…or 3…or a whole case.  For Valentine’s Day, we tried the Kim Crawford sparkling wine, also known as Fizz, and that too was just as refreshing. Even if you are not a fan of bubbles, I would recommend trying it.  It is on the dryer side, but still has a bit of sweetness.

I am not a huge red wine drinker, but their pinot noir is actually very good, as well.  It is not as heavy as many red wines.

One day hopefully I will know as much about wine as my dad, who probably owns more bottles than any wine store in the area.

Cheers, Drink up!
