How do I add an image to my profile?

I am a stay-at-home mom who has a wonderful husband and young daughter. I am also very busy as an active member of a fantastic cooking group! We are a powerful, wonderful, talented, creative, and compassionate bunch of moms whose kids are just the best! We happen to LOVE wine and going to vineyards in the NoVa area as well.

Tarara Vineyard & Winery (written Jul 13, 2011)
Wine: 1 stars Winery: 1 stars Ambiance: 2 stars
I am part of a mom's cooking group, and we absolutely love to taste good wine as well as cook. Some of us decided to take a trip with our kids to Tarara today to enjoy some food and then planned on doing some tastings and surely to buy wine. When we got there, we were the only ones there and were so the entire time we were there. We were greeted by a nice young man who opened a little banquet area for us to let our kids stretch and play, while we all enjoyed our food. We planned on tasting after we finished our food. The young man had suggested that we come out three at a time (there were eight of us) to taste while the others watched the kids. Mind you, we were in a total separate room from the tasting section. Toward the end of our lunch, one of the moms decided to ask the lady at the front (she happened to be there at this time) if she would like to enjoy some of our food, as we had plenty. Her response: "It is extremely inappropriate for you all to be here, especially with your kids. Please take your party outside." reached 105 degrees today. So, the mom asked to speak to the owner. The owner, who happened to come downstairs fifteen minutes later, literally asked us to leave! It was absolutely discriminatory toward the fact that we had kids. She said, "this is a place of business. We are not a nursery school." Then, we mentioned to her that we do know other people, moms, dads, and singles alike, and will be telling them that this is how we are being treated. Her response: "oh, so I don't have to deal with more moms bringing along their kids"?! She also said that we were disturbing other customers...we were the ONLY ONES the entire time we were there. Oh my gosh, this was by far the most horrific case of discrimination against having kids with us. It was so blatant. Thank goodness one of the moms told her that she should really remove from their website that they are "kid-friendly" - it is QUITE the opposite. In fact, as we were trying to talk to her, she literally turned her back and walked away. It was awful. Just awful. PLEASE take caution and go to ANY other vineyard around the area. There are plenty of others that are way more accommodating.
