I just had the most incredible weekend in California with @onehope! It was inspiring and more emotional than I could have imagined. The impact that we're making is REAL. It was so so powerful to hear from @susanrene about the impact our partnership with @pencilsofpromise will make. It pulled at all of my heartstrings to see the impact we continue to make with @whyhungerpix. I had the opportunity to meet and spend time with so many incredible people from so many different backgrounds. It's amazing to think about how we're all connected through the desire to create meaningful change. I feel so blessed to have been given this opportunity and to work alongside these amazing #bossbabes 👯👯 Cheers to an amazing year! 🥂🍾
While most people are meal prepping for the week, here I am brewing up fun cocktails for a relaxing Sunday night in. I love cooking on Sunday's and it is not limited to food. Does anyone else use Sunday nights for new creations to use the next time you have people over... sometimes I make something and never make it again, it's just a great way for me to disconnect and unwind. The recipe for this mojito mint and lavender champagne cocktail is on our story tonight. It's a sweet night cap with a kick 🍾 *this is pretty sweet, use less simple syrup and a little extra champagne to make it less sweet. ONEHOPE Champagne can be ordered at viaonehope.com/lovetogive .
~Urge to make boomerangs hasn't faded~ 😅😅FINALLY opened my bottle of #OneHope sparkling wine 🥂🍷- thanks to @jackfalahee for enlightening me about @trevorproject - One Hope and The Trevor Project teamed up to create this magical limited edition bottle where a hefty portion of the proceeds go to THe Trevor Project: a non profit organization that focuses on suicide prevention for LGBQT youth, with a 24/7 toll-free and confidential hotline available ❤️💛💚💙💜 Mental Health is grossly undervalued in America. Many people have even told me, "just stop thinking about it" or "why are you depressed though" or "just eat it's not that hard." I can't imagine the struggles that others go through and will not emphasize mine in this moment - this is for those who are already so petrified, living in fear of unacceptance and verbal abuse. There is HELP. There are OPTIONS. I chose to speak about this now also due to the tragic passing of Chester Bennington 💔 Mental health is cancer of the mind... something that I would never wish upon my worst enemy. I hope everyone can try to see that mental health is not something as easy as "just stop thinking about that" or "just do yoga." Please #bekind and let the ones you love know you are there for them ❤️💛💚💙💜 #Pride#MentalHealth#SuicidePrevention@onehope
I'm at the airport now about to fly home and it's no surprise I'm still on a high from this fantastic weekend. You guys - this isn't just wine. We're trying to change the world... one bottle at a time. And it's incredible. We had the opportunity to meet John Elway & his son Jack who are partnering with us to launch the 7 Cellars label and, in talking about the new venture, Jack said something that resonated with me so much that I know it will now become a mantra of sorts. He said, "Find your passion... and become OBSESSED with it." Hearing that gave me chills and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since. It's not just the wine (although of course the wine is fabulous! 🎉). Its the fact that this group of people have come together with a determination to make an impact in the world around them. It's the commitment to giving back in our small, every day choices. You guys - we're building a school. With wine. We have raised over $54,000 to provide meals to children in need in the US. With wine. And on top of that.... it's only getting bigger from here! You don't have to jump in and join me on this journey to make an impact (but you should - and this team is amazing!). You just need to order some wine. That bottle you just picked up from the grocery store isn't going to be funding cancer research, I can promise you that! #whatdoesyourwinedo
