You see~ Jessica Patterson, a sweet friend of mine, loves to plan outrageously extravagant parties just for fun! She really needs to turn it into a business. Honestly, she should. She’s just that …

Wine Tasting Party

Tammy Hiveley - August 21, 2014

A few weeks ago I hosted a wine tasting party for a group of ladies I’m honored to know.  This group gathers together to laugh, love on each other and most importantly raise money for women’s education.  We are all apart of the PEO sisterhood. My husband’s office is the perfect place to host this event.  It’s quiet, already clean, and has a beautifully landscaped backyard. …
