Taking a moment of gratitude with Barossa Valley Estate

As we approach June, I’m slowly finding more time to catch up and settle down in NY. This winter has been one of the longest seasons by far, as I spent much of it traveling and discovering new destinations that I have been wanting to visit, in countless locations around the west coast. Doing what I do, I’m always documenting my experiences as I go, so that I can share them with all of you on my blog and Instagram. It’s not just a part of my lifestyle but also my work. Exploring these new destinations both inspired and thrilled me. I couldn’t stop photographing my surroundings and thinking about the exciting content I could create.

Spring is now upon us, which means putting effort into cleaning out the old and bringing in the new. But the effort is rewarded more than in kind. From the old-time satisfaction that comes with work done by one’s hands, to the pride that comes with a well-kept home, to the less tangible experience of accepting a new season, prepared to receive all it has. 

When I find time to sit down and reflect or look forward, I usually have a glass of wine in hand. My go-to is Barossa Valley Estate, a red wine specialist from the heart of the Barossa Valley.. Everybody I know loves wine, and there is no wine I love more than Barossa Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. While I’ve been fortunate enough to savor all kinds, this extraordinary red wine is in a league of its own..

We are finally through the cold weather and it has been such a great, busy year so far, thus I thought there was no better way to celebrate than to relax at home and open a bottle of my favorite wine! New York is finally warming up after what’s felt like the coldest winter and spring, so the timing couldn’t be more perfect. I’m so glad the good weather is finally here, it has felt like ages since I experienced some of this heat in my second home. I may have been traveling non-stop the past two months but always returning to gloomy New York was getting depressing.

Despite my hectic schedule, making the time to enjoy little glimpses of spring are some of my favorite and must do things. Embracing the present is everything and it’s come to be the biggest lesson I’ve learnt this year. I’m living in the NOW and I’m doing me and I’m loving it. No second thoughts, no overthinking. Life’s too short: celebrate the small wins, have that second glass of wine; buy that new suit. It’s been a great year, but what really matters is having a great time with the people that mean most to me. 

 

 Thank you Barossa Valley Estate for the extraordinary wine! I promise we drank responsibly.
