I don't like to make a big carry on about things normally, I barely even celebrate my birthday because attention makes me uncomfortable, but the universe came together to make the anniversary of my lap band an awesome day.

I am travelling around North America at the moment and the place I was looking forward to going the most is the Napa Valley. I love visiting wineries, it is pretty much my favourite thing to do, I mean what beats drinking wine and eating cheese in a gorgeous setting? So it just happened that I would be in the Napa Valley in California on the 22nd May, the one year anniversary of getting my lap band.

It also worked out that my all time favourite singer, Lisa Loeb, was playing in Napa that night. I literally nearly wet pants with excitement when I got the email alert that she was playing in Napa last week and I couldn't believe it was the night of the 22nd May.

So I was lucky enough to spend my day touring around the Chandon winery in Napa, drinking champagne and eating delectable food, and then listening to my favourite singer in concert that night (I even got to meet her, see the photo below, oh she is tinsy tiny too!).

Best day ever. 

How am I going to top this next year?

Being happy and healthy is enough, the rest is gravy!

    That whole post I had .. And you say I only hear what I want to:
    I don't listen hard,
    don't pay attention to the distance that you're running
    to anyone, anywhere,
    I don't understand if you really care,
    I'm only hearing negative: no, no, no.... running through my head and now its stuck!!!

    Up in the hills there, nestled away in a 3 shop town is the most devine mexican place. I remember the whole dark, romantic atmosphere like it was yesterday.
