Watch Me Turn 30, by Holly C.
I'm a 29-year-old New Yorker who inherited this site from my pal, Holly P., to document the final year of my twenties. Right up until I turn the big 3-0 next January, I'll use this blog to indulge my inner-narcissist by voicing the good (I can date men anywhere from ages 21 to 50 without it being scandalous) the bad (I keep getting ma'amed) and the ugly (is it possible to get cellulite on your stomach?!). Here's to waving goodbye to my youth, accepting adulthood and remembering that every ending is really just a new beginning.

DAY 105  |  May 14, 2007
The Lost Girls are wine connoisseurs! Well, not really, but we graduated from the Hunter Valley Wine School today and each got our own certificate. We were instructed to wear these hardhats (even though weíre hardheaded enough) during a tour of the winery to witness just how vino is made. Then we sat down inside the wine bar and got to sample all different kinds.

Hunter Valley is known for four types of wine: Semillon (a light, dry white), Verdelho (a fruity white), Chardonnay (a full-bodied white that can be tart) and Shiraz (a spicy red). Though there are hundreds of boutique wineries in Hunter Valley, so we were disappointed to learn that we canít buy many of the bottles in the States since the smaller ones donít produce enough wine to export. I better drink my share now since Iíll have to make another trip to Oz to taste it againóor stock up on a few bottles to take home.
