With beauty before me I walk
With beauty behind me I walk

With beauty around me I walk
It has become beauty again.” — Navajo Prayer

Summer has brought me around the world and back home again (and grateful for dear friends in each), while August has already led me through Portland and Oregon’s Willamette Valley on adventures with the wonderful House Spirits/Westward Whiskey crew.

This week, I return yet again to LA for this year’s BevCon in Koreatown, hoping to see some of you there?
