When women are brave…

The best birthday celebration (in Napa, CA) ever!

By Genny

A few weeks ago, I went to Napa with my friends to celebrate our birthdays. We’ve all known each other since grammar school or high school and we have a tradition of getting together for a girls weekend once a year.
