“You mean you can make wine out of lemons?” Yes, it’s possible and here’s how we do it. First, we combine four simple ingredients in these large, BPA-free vats imported from Germany. Fermentation takes anywhere from 4-6 weeks depending on factors like temperature and interaction of the ingredients. It’s like a giant chemistry experiment that requires lots of monitoring. Once a batch reaches the desired alcohol content, we separate the good stuff from the sludge. Then, after sterilizing the bottles, the wine is bottled, capped and labeled by hand. Simple but not necessarily easy, that’s how we craft our refreshing craft wines in #palmerlake!
Hang in there it’s only Monday.

Looking like a troll doll on ‘Captain Hook’ today 👩🏼🦱
I was pretty pleased to send this and ‘Badger’ super quick. Unfortunately not much else was dry so there wasn’t much else to go at, but a fun day either way. Hopefully the next rock I’ll climb will be back in the county after having not climbed there for almost 10 months, pretty excited! .

I’ve had a number of conversations recently about disowning or repressing aspects of ourselves. We do it in relationships when we get critical feedback about some behavior or tendency or interest we have. We do it in our jobs. We do it in response to comments and reactions from family and friends. We are so wired for approval that we will abandon ourselves to get it.
The consequence of disowning or abandoning a part of you, is that you begin to feel broken or incomplete. There is a sense of loss. Grief, confusion, and depression are common emotional reactions. It’s disorienting to fragment ourselves in this way. And my God is it tiring.
I see depressed patients who don’t realize that what they’re grieving is the loss of some aspect of themself. They have disconnected or detached from themselves and the result is painful. I have been this person.
You had a jealous or possessive lover so you disowned the part of yourself that is flirtatious and vivacious and playful. You had parents who disapproved of revealing clothing so you disowned the part of yourself that wants to celebrate your body and the power of your sexuality. You had friends who judged you for your opinions so you disowned your voice and your truth. Your boss criticized you for lack of focus and time management so you disowned the creative imaginative part of yourself. There are endless examples.
If you’re struggling with depression, self-doubt, or shame, one of the first steps to healing is inviting back in all those pieces of yourself that you shut out in an effort to win the love or approval of other people. Reclaim every beautiful and flawed part of you and take back your power and all the energy that comes with it. There is space for all of you and there are people who can hold space for the entire range of who you are. No one’s love or approval is worth the pain of making yourself smaller.
Ultimately, the idea that we can win love and approval is an illusion. People cannot be manipulated into loving us, and who would want that kind of love anyway?
