I AM SINGLE!

Image
Legally, that is. I have been single since June of 2012, just six weeks after my wedding. It’s a long story, if you don’t already know it. I legally filed for divorce on December 12, 2012. Yes, 12/12/12, when most couples think it’s good luck to get married when the numbers of the dates are all the same. The process should have been quick and painless but I wasn’t that lucky. The earliest you can get officially divorced is six months after filing your petition. I had already planned to celebrate on the beaches of Kauai, Hawaii with my beautiful nephew, Sol, and my family members. However, June 12th came and went with no resolution but I did do something fun and amazing….keep reading. I honestly just wanted to dust my hands clean of everything, accept I made a terrible mistake, learn from the disaster and walk away the bigger person. I was not searching for an apology, an explanation, revenge or to make a profit. Just let me walk away! But delay after delay for such a simple request to…

Our First Investors Meeting

Image
The Operating Team of Dirty Water had a wonderful time with our investors on the rooftop of Anchor Steam Brewery. It was such a pleasure to meet each one of these amazing, smart, humble and fun individuals.
We first gathered in the tasting room on the second floor. We were poured our choice of Anchor Steam beers and then led upstairs by the very generous and knowledgeable Jen Chen to the top floor.

Introductions of our Operating Team were made by Kristian and an update of the many tasks we are working on as a group to open were explained. Questions were asked and answers were received. Zachary explained the two cocktails he especially created for our investors that evening. And Jen explained disti…

Update:
Thank you to a very large and generous donation, I was able to get The Princess Package again. Yes!! I was searching for a costume for Halloween and saw all the superhero stuff. My sister loves Superman so I thought we could go dressed up as superheroes. Here's my get up.

I picked up my sister at our Lola's house since that would be the middle point from my house to Esparto, CA. Lola thinks we're crazy.
We made it and immediately received compliments on our costumes. Last year I was a devil.

The route was different this year and the obstacles were so much better. There was one with five mu…
