Wilmington, NC Beer & Wine Walk

One of the things we KNEW we needed to do while we were in Wilmington that weekend was the Beer & Wine Walk. We like beer. We like wine. It made sense.

Aside from stopping every 5 minutes to take photos at this wall, that stair case, this storefront, that street, we had a TIGHT beer drinking schedule.

So, basically, they give you a map and a bracelet and you stop at each restaurant for your beer/wine. There were 9  stops total and 2 samples per stop which equals to 18 beer samples and each sample varied in size depending on the restaurant. Some restaurants didn’t even care and were like, “if you want more, just come back.” Lookin’ at you Slice of Life. The real MVPs.

The map was a little confusing (or we’re just not that bright) but we kept getting lost/walking into the wrong bars and then just awkwardly walking out.

Hanging out with a photog/blogger is SO MUCH FUN. We’re both the same when it comes to doing things like “omg stop here I need a photo by THAT” and then making someone slam on their brakes for a photo op. There’s no one around to get pissy or annoyed. We just took tons of photos and had so much fun being total weirdos and exploring the area.

Downtown Wilmington is such a pretty area with so much to offer and there is always something going on! We had so much fun meeting the vendors and mingling with new people!

(Homegirl actually climbed up into this window hole for photos.)

I can’t believe I had never done a beer walk or festival like this before – it was SO much fun! And such a great way to explore your taste for different drinks without having to commit to an actual purchase and pint of beer.

  • Being chronically ill doesn’t make you a “burden”.
You’re not some unfortunate thing that happened. You’re not “less than”, an “inconvenience”, or “annoying”. You’re not your illness. 
What you ARE, is:
* Every bit as much a person as anyone else.
* A complete and total BADASS for handling the cards you’ve been dealt ON TOP of doing life just like everyone else.
* Deserving of a person that’s understanding, supportive, and doesn’t make you feel GUILTY for things that are beyond your control. 
And I hate that this is something I have to constantly remind myself of.

  • I am feeling SO good today! 👏🏼 I’ve been thinking a lot lately about why I feel the way I do at this point in my life and I’m learning. I’ve said it a million times & I’ll say it again for good measure: the relationship you have with yourself is so. important. Nourish it, feed it, watch it blossom. And youll surprise yourself when the time comes that the universe tests your strength. #reallifeis #yearofyou #selflovesoldier
  • Last night I fought consciousness HARDDDD- but still managed to fall asleep before 3am. 🎉 and I got up early, grabbed coffee with a friend, and came home to have a productive afternoon of catching up on work. I might pop on my stories for a little bit to word vomit some more but we’ll see. 🙄 #happythursday #reallifeis
  • Over it. 
Where’s my sunshine.
I want to sunbathe like a lizard.
  • It’s healthy resolution season and I’m keeping my pearly whites clean with the @waterpik toothbrush from my @babbleboxxofficial wishlist from last month! It’s a water flosser and triple sonic toothbrush all in one neat little counter topper. #wishlistbbxx #ad #waterpik

  • so many holiday things happening and literally aaaalll I can think about is the ocean.
  • I’m really struggling with the holiday spirit this year. Maybe because I’m growing up, maybe because life is weird right now. Who really even knows. I’m just super stoked I’m home with my favorite peoples. ✨🌲
