Match Success Couple: Courtney and Josh

Josh and I messaged for an evening and texted for two days before exchanging phone numbers and making plans to meet.  I was really nervous because my last few relationships had ended horribly and I was still hurting. I had only joined Match.com at the urging of some close friends. I thought he was cute the second I saw him, and we didn’t stop talking until the rain made us. Read more…

Cristi & Michael ID 37591

Match Success Couple: Cristi & Michael

Michael will always say that I winked at him first, but that’s up for debate. We found each other through our love of our dogs. He had a Husky and I had a Chiweenie. In fact, his tag line was “My best friend is my Husky Bubba!” What animal-loving woman wouldn’t wink at that? We started e-mailing and then eventually exchanged phone numbers and the relationship heightened to texting. He finally had the nerve to meet up on June 11 at the San Diego County Fair. He had never been, and I was a pro at the fair so I knew this would be the perfect place for us to meet. Read more…

OMG, Blake and Ryan are Expecting

This is not gossip, girl – Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds announced earlier this week that they are expecting a baby! The actress announced the news on her lifestyle website, Preserve, with a beautiful side portrait highlighting her baby bump. Both Blake and Ryan have been vocal about wanting children since their marriage in the fall of 2012, both descending from rather large families themselves – Blake from a family of seven, Ryan one of four kids. “I gotta get started. If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would,” the A-lister mom-to-be told Marie Claire in September 2014. Congratulations to the first of what sounds like many babies to come! Read more…

Stir Event Recap: Hiking, Dining and Wine in the Great Outdoors

There are Stir events happening every night all over the country, and we want to share with you a few of our favorites each week. This week we’re featuring a hike in the Hudson Valley with visits to two local wineries. Vino & adventure!

The Nitty-Gritty

A three-hour hike in breathtaking Hudson Valley along with a picnic under the sun and a visit to two local wineries.

What Went Down

With over 220 miles of hiking trails and wood roads, the large and beautiful area is a haven for hikers. Lakes, mountain streams, old iron mines, sprawling meadows and varied terrain provided an incredible backdrop for the group. Experienced guides led the group through a 3 1/2 hour hike in the gorgeous Hudson Valley covering nearly five miles of terrain, but the day didn’t end there — members were then treated to a well-deserved picnic lunch al fresco before visiting not one, but two wineries in the area. Talk about a fulfilling day!
