Hello…I’m Back!

Hello! I am back after a longer than anticipated blog break. I bet you thought I wasn’t blogging any longer and I don’t blame you. There were times over the last couple of months I didn’t think I would return to the blog myself. Starting with last fall’s devastating wine country fires, life has changed so much. From becoming empty nesters when Tori moved to Oregon, gaining not one but two kids-in-law when both Ryan and…

Seven Year Blog Anniversary & a Feature on Ageless Style!

On June 29th, 2010, I started this blog with a post about a book that I now barely remember reading. To say it’s hard to believe I’ve been blogging that long is an understatement to be sure! With seven years and over 1000 posts under my belt, I definitely feel like I have arrived at “veteran status” for a lifestyle blogger. In past blog anniversaries, I have recounted all the wonderful things blogging brought into…

The Rich Life in Wine Country!

It is time for a change! Time to switch things up and try something new. For the last several months, I’ve felt like I needed a change here on The Rich Life. I compare it to looking in the mirror one day and deciding that the shade of lipstick you’ve been wearing for the last six years just doesn’t work for you any longer.

Around Here Lately

I had hoped to have a fashion post for you today but with the continuous and rather heavy rains (hooray!), all I’ve been wearing lately are jeans, long-sleeved tees, my wellies and a raincoat. Not very interesting! Sunnier weather is in the forecast starting today so it won’t be long before I’ve got some spring fashion posts for you. Until then, I thought I’d take this opportunity to tell you what’s been happening around here lately. You may or…
