About Me: Baby Boomer
My name is Judith.
I am a Boomer. Boomer is short for Baby Boomer. A baby Boomer is Defined as “ a person born in the years following World War ll, when there was a temporary marked increase in the birthrate.” Typically, the range of years the early 1940s to 19 64. Us Baby Boomers represent a relatively large demographic. It is because of this that trend in the economic make-up of the globe, tend to follow us.
I went through life doing everything I “should” and in the seemingly correct order. I left home, went to University, Got a teaching job, got married, had 2 children, got divorced…. You know the story.
Things started to take an interesting turn when I got close to retirement age, which is where I am now.
I had more time on my hands that I could control, and I had reached a point where money and all the worries that accompany it, were not so much of an issue.
I decided to make changes about me and do some new things.
I approached Wine as a tool to get me to social events. I drank a bit of wine in the past, but it was not a big focus. I started going to Wine Tastings to socialize with new people who were close to my age and status. The result was a burgeoning Love of Wine!
I started to learn about not only wine, but all the things that accompany it. I was hooked!
Being a Canadian from the prairies, I was pleasantly surprised how these people have adapted what they grow indigenously to make into some lovely wines.
I also have ready access to the Okanagan Valley, which has so many wineries and wines to sample, I could never run out in my lifetime!
I decided to share this excitement with others, and this website was born.
I do not claim to be a wine expert, but I am a wine enthusiast. I am an introvert by nature, so wine really helps!
I hope you will join me as I investigate everything wine, from a boomer perspective.
