If you are a parent, time spent with your kids is the most precious gift of all time. But, everyone needs a break including, and especially, moms! This episode, we interview Mo, the mother of an awesome little dude, to learn how her life changed once she became a mother – a topic we think many can relate to. We delve into the stress of being a parent, how to prevent “mommy burnout” and tips to keep your self-identity outside of mom or dad. We’re sipping “Mommy’s Time Out” which was the perfect escape. So grab your own glass, take a break from the kids, and listen!
Much like the wine we’re pairing this topic with, Experience can lead you to new, uncharted territories. Sometimes good, sometimes bad, more oftentimes scary. Maybe you had a falling out with a friend, maybe you had to move somewhere you’ve never been (ahem, “The Place That Shall Not Be Named”), maybe you live for the unfamiliar! Whichever bucket you find yourself, have you ever considered what you gained from these experiences? In this episode, we take a trip back to reflect more deeply on some of those pivotal moments in your DBP hosts’ lives: becoming less Type A, moving to Milwaukee, a trip to Napa that changed everything. So let the stars align for you, let fear carry you forward rather than hold you back, and tune in. And remember, wine is not just a beverage, it’s an experience!
The holiday season is upon us!! And with all the joy this time of year brings, sometimes comes unwanted guests…and we are not referring to your Great Aunt Kathy who shows up unannounced with a suitcase and some fruitcake…we are talking about STRESS! This episode, we chat holiday stressors and tactics to make the best of this festive time. How can we escape the holiday blues and focus on the “reason for the season,” appreciating all the pleasures that comes with spending time with loved ones and the spirit of giving. We have lots of helpful tips to keep you merry and bright all season long! Of course, wine helps – so pour yourself a glass and drink along with us! Escape is the name of the game as we sip on PAXIS Red Blend, the winemaker’s expression of a way to escape from the stress of the world and appreciate the pleasure a great wine can give. Happy Holidays DBPeeps!
