It's easy to poke fun at those having a good time under the influence. Lost inhibitions can be entertaining to watch, but how do you know when a good time has gone too far? Whether it be ourselves, friends, or a beloved family member, a night of drinking can easily go from a great time to life threatening, with many of us none the wiser.

Wine. One of my most favorite topics to discuss. Seeing it, holding it, tasting it, feeling it. You name it, I love it. While I have ventured out to many wineries in New Jersey—heck, I even got married at one—I still have much wine exploring to do on my bucket list. Of course, I have a few international wine destinations like Italy and France, but I would be just as lucky to visit one of America's wineries, as they have some of the best tasting grapes in the world. From New York and Virginia's rolling hills to the breathtaking, sun-kissed views of California and everywhere in between, the US is full of award-winning, amazing wine country destinations that are just waiting for my visit. On top of that, even if the wine tours don't have your taste buds rejoicing in flavor, at least you get to sit back and relax, sniff, swirl, and try different wines. Who knows, hopefully you can get yourself a nice little buzz to take home with you. Responsibly that is.
