Welcome To Racing For Rosé

My name is Kristina and I am from upstate South Carolina. I am married to a wonderful man named Adam and we are currently trying to live our life to the fullest before settling down.

Adam and I met March 9th, 2011. He fell for me immediately and thus it was a whirlwind relationship where he proposed on November 25, 2011. We had the wedding of our dreams the following December and have lived happily ever after since.




Three years later he is still my best friend. He makes me laugh, he drives me crazy, and he is literally the best thing that has ever happened to me. The past three years have been nothing short of… crazy. One Master’s degree, two apartments, two states, one home build, five jobs, one Clemson National Championship game and SO MUCH MORE. That is just a short list of things that describe where we have been so far. And it is merely a glimpse into where we are going.

Once Adam graduated grad school, we vowed to each other that we were going to start living for ourselves. We promised that we would focus more on the things that we wanted to do as opposed to the things we felt like we needed to do. And so, here we are.





Who are you?

Things I LOVE: Adam. My 2 cats. A clean house. Running. Shopping. Cooking. Makeup. DIY. Being wined and dined. Traveling. Christmas decor. Dessert. Clemson University. Rosé.


Things I HATE: Eggs. Political arguments. Bad drivers. Mayonnaise. People who are late.  Bad runs.


Why/How/When did you start your blog?

I have wanted to start blogging for a few years now. It’s a shame to admit that I have started a few times before but have never gotten farther than a few posts and a couple of weeks. I really hope that all changes with Racing For Rosé. I finally realize that I really do have a lot to say. I am constantly running and training, I try new recipes all the time, I love a DIY project, and I live (or try to) for fashion and makeup.


Where did you get your blog name from?

I love running. And I love wine. And I love all things fabulous. I did not want to focus on one specific thing for this blog, but rather on all of the things that I enjoy. I felt that I needed a name that expressed my desire to blog about many different things. “Racing For Rosé”, to me, means that I will share with you my many miles of running, the different worlds of wine, and all things in between. I wanted to write about beauty tips, books that I read, recipes that I find, home projects I work on, and much more.


So please, sip back with a big glass, and ENJOY!
