Wine Of The Month Club

This has been a post a long time in coming! I was so happy several weeks ago to be selected to receive a complimentary trial of a wine of the month club. It came beautifully packaged along with a newsletter and a really nice gift card.

It's a rarity that I get to try something new, so I was excited to read up on this wine before we broke it out for the holidays. It really made it fun as I asked people around the table what they thought of the wine. Many really liked the "oak" flavor that comes from being aged in Oak. Others really liked the dryness in the flavor--while others preferred more of a 'fruity' flavor. But all in all, it went over really well, and was excited to be able to share this with my family members. We do have a bit left over for New Years--but I may actually have to order some of my own!

As soon as I figure out how to download the pictures from my new digital camera, I will post a picture of these beautiful bottles.

Welcome 2008

I was tremendously blessed this Christmas. Not just with the renewed gift of health for all of our family members, but with the temporal needs to care for our family's needs, and to be able to provide a beautiful home for them, and a pretty darn nice Christmas. With the new year comes the close of many the home redo projects. From the Hansgrohe faucets to the new countertops. This next year I don't plan to look at a paint brush for my own home all year long! Helping my sister is another story--but for this house, we are done! Merry Christmas to me!

He's Home!!

How was your Christmas? Ours was busy! Really it was stressed out crazy! My father in law had gone into the hospital for a quick (yeah right) angiogram and ended up being admitted for many days in order to get him stable. It was a close call for quite awhile, but I'm happy to report that he is finally home and resting comfortably. We had Christmas really, really late on Christmas day. My poor kids were such troopers. Most of us were just really worried about grandpa--so we are all thrilled that he's feeling better!
