To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

As I approached the milestone of 40, I started to think about this quote more and more. I had spent years building a successful career helping others tell their story, meanwhile I was living my own. I felt a huge pull on my heart to start something new and give my children an experience that would broaden their perspective on life and provide them an understanding of humanity, compassion and the world around them.
It was this inner-monologue that eventually prompted me to take a leap of faith and leave my position as Vice President at one of the top book publishing companies and lean into the fear of the unknown. I sold my home, packed up our life and we made our way to Australia.
I was once asked, “how do you do it all?” At the time, I was juggling a busy career, two toddlers, teaching at the University, a marriage that was falling apart and life. I responded with, “I start the day with coffee and end the day with wine, everything in between is simply called life.” This is where ‘Coffee Loves Wine’ was born.
The idea behind my answer was that there is a starting point and an ending point to each day and whatever happens between those two things is where stories are made, where life happens. And having spent a lifetime building a career on storytelling, I truly believe our stories are what connect us all to one another.
And, I really do like coffee and wine.
I wanted to create something that would explore life, remind us to laugh and encourage growth. My hope is to empower and inspire you while being real about life – the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in between.

Start the Day with Coffee. End the Day with Wine. Life is what happens in between.
