Obviously I’m breaking my “narrative” prose-ish feel to just…update on what was perhaps the best birthday I’ve ever had. There’s no better way to ring in 29 than spending a few days in the most gorgeous countryside ever with 75 degree weather and good wine.
As a treat, Moses and I spent a night at the Hadsten House (where we spent a good four hours laughing in the hot tub while other guests came and went, had the best, most massive dinner ever, watched animal planet and got very, very drunk). As a birthday gift Moses bought me a membership to the wine club at our favorite winery, Lincort (which is small and beautiful and we always love talking to the wine pourer and visiting with the stray cats).
Turned out the gift of one wine club was the gift that keeps on giving, as my mom says—it bought us free tastings at all their sister wineries…and there are lots! So, the membership bought itself…or so I’ll think when we get charged next time!
