What To Know – Bacchanalian Society’s Fall Wine Gathering

Who is the Bacchanalian Society of Omaha? The Bacchanalian Society of Omaha is a not for profit charity organization focused on celebration and philanthropy. The name “Bacchanalian” comes from latin mythology where grape farmers would throw festivals to celebrate the mythological god of wine – fitting for a group who throws wine tasting events to share philanthropic messages. So how do you have a competitive wine tasting event? First, find one or two friends and register your team here. Your team needs to bring three bottles of the same wine – for this event you’ll need three bottles of the same white blend. There are no rules or regulations for which white blend you bring (ie. price or region). Spirit World in Aksarben is offering 10% off for all attendees who purchase their competition wine there! Two of each team’s bottles are bagged (this is a blind tasting) and ranked by all competitors. Each attendee gets a set of cards to vote on which they like or dislike. The five highest ranking teams divvy up the unopened bottles. Will there be food? YES! Food will be provided by Nothing Bundt Cakes, Flagship …

I Could Do Better

Do you ever make a commitment to doing something better and months later think, “Didn’t I say I was going to try and be better at this?” I don’t know how many times I’ve left the dentist promising to floss every day, or vented to girlfriends about how my diligent diet and workout schedule “doesn’t seem to be working”. GUILTY! Apart from the obvious health benefits and integrity built from self-discipline, I think really trying to be better (in general) improves our quality of life and sets us up for greater accomplishments. REGULAR READING: A while back, I had set goals to read a write regularly. Although I’ve been better at writing regularly (yet not always published), I have been majorly slacking in the reading department. The irony is, reading helps writers become better writers. Suggestions: Use Devotionals and Calendars | Start a Reading Group  | Pick An Author or Series TRAVEL WRITING: This is my favorite of favorite goals! A long story for another day, developing my skills in travel journalism is key to achieving long-term goals. Lately, I’ve notice daily life deterring …

Check Yo Self!

So, I’ve been off my blogging game for a minute, largely because I’ve been so focused on other endeavors. If you follow me on instagram or facebook, you should know that I’ve taken this whole Adventure Culture concept to the next level. Not only am I doing freelance photography and writing full-time, I have also launched a new collection of apparel for Dirt Wife, “For the women who love the men who love motocross”. CONFESSION TIME: With all this busy business, it’s easy to get snarky. When the pressure is on, it is extra important to sit back and check yo self! My family is my support system; they encourage me daily and are subsequently on the front line of emotional backlash. I think anyone who is truly honest with themselves can recognized that they are more testy with loved ones – possibly because we feel comfortable being totally vulnerable in front of them. Not my finest hour… SOMETHING FEELS OFF: These life and work changes were once a dream and I feel so fortunate to be able to pursue my …
