I'm not much of a drinker...whether I'm drinking or not, I end up in the same place...in bed asleep. Just with liquor, I get there quicker. I also married a man that has never tasted a drop of alcohol his entire life, so drinking alone feels a bit pathetic after awhile...you know? Like I'm a raging alcoholic, I don't care if the company I keep is drinking or not, I'm going to drink! Although, a glass of wine every now and then does take the edge off a stressful day. One of my favorite things to do is peruse the wine aisles and find one I might want to try. If nothing catches my eye, I'll grab ol' faithful - Martini & Rossi Asti. It's everything a girly girl would like in a sparkling wine - light, bubbly, and sweet. I'll have to give a shout out to my friend Casey since this was our cheap wine of choice when we were roommates...what?? Don't Judge~ Well, it wasn't THAT cheap...about $15...we could have done some $4.99 Reunites wine, LOL.
I ventured down the aisle titled "Wines Made Locally." I was unaware just how many winery's we actually had. Honestly, the wines that catch my eye the most are the ones with the cutest/funniest labels. So, for me I do judge some books by their cover, but this particular one had my brothers name on it and it won a red wine award, so I snagged it. StableRidge Vineyards - Jeremiah's Red. I loved it! It was light and not too sweet. I by no means have a refined pallet or a vast knowledge of all things WINE. I just tell ya what I like :)
Now to solidify my mother of the year award, I'm going to post a few March photo's of my kid in this blog about liquor. Don't worry, I don't take him out like this, we were in our backyard :)
