July 2017 NEWS: Winner at the Award Ceremony

I won second place for my print column at the Jewish Journal for the Southern California Journalism Awards! There were 1200 entries for the 59th annual awards and I was a finalist in two categories.

Where did I travel recently?

I flew with JetSuiteX for a one day adventure to Napa! EpicMakers edited the video for me and will be a sponsor for my brand new TRAVEL PHOTO AWARD that begins August 1st!

I was invited to the opening of the Lake Club at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe and to conquer my fear of mountain biking! I am so proud of myself. Of all my 50 things before I am 50 so far, this was by far and away the scariest one. I still cannot believe I did it!

And now for something new: I was honored to be asked to be a Facebook Live host for USA Today 10best’s new project. I was “live” in Tahoe from the brand new Lake Club at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe and at the Culver City Centennial Food and Wine Festival.

I would rather stay in a cheaper place and spend more on my excursions.
