Luck and Lagniappe
A Quick Look at my Week at The Islay Whisky Academy 2019
I’ll be the first to admit I live a charmed life. Fortunate. Blessed. Lucky. I’m thankful for my supportive and loving husband, dear family, sweet dogs, crazy friends, a fulfilling job, and safe and comfortable home.
But I also believe we make our own luck. To do that, one must take a chance or calculated risk, often against heavy odds. When I submitted my essay for a competition to win a week at The Islay Whisky Academy, I didn’t get my hopes up, especially after finding out there were 80 other applicants. But by at least trying – taking the risk, I had a shot.
