My September Intentions + Enneagram Exploration

My September Intentions + Enneagram Exploration

I think it’s safe to say 2020 isn’t what a lot of people had in mind. From World War III scares, cyber attacks, a global pandemic, specie endangerment, multiple wildfires, cray weather, and more- there’s a lot we’ve collectively experienced and witness in the world. Yesterday as I smelled a hint of autumn in the air, I was inspired to bring this series back. I need this time to process and set small attainable goals that aren’t tied to a government, the CDC, or anything else that could cause my goals to be swayed.

The Secret To Having The Best Wine Night

The Secret To Having The Best Wine Night

Phil and I were at a dinner party a few weeks ago and the host shared how he remembers his first bottle of wine. While it was not expensive or of high caliber, to this day he can recall the moment the wine touched his lips and the aroma from the bottle. The moral of his story was not about the power of the alcohol, but rather who we share a bottle with and the experience. I love hearing his stories about previous dinner parties he has hosted, the places he has traveled to for tastings, and everything in-between. After learning about his latest trip to France, the stories reminded me of a shoot Phil and I coordinated a while back for a magazine where we set out to create a moment that could someday be a dinner party story.
