wine Wednesday: reds blues

it’s been a while since i’ve done one of these. with all this writing, i definitely need a glass of wine, thought! i was hoping to have some good news to report out of the last Naked Wines box, but alas, i got down to the reds and they’ve been kind of disappointing. that’s Southern…

wine Wednesday: lesson in Bordeaux

it has been a long week since last Wednesday. i’m decidely in some kind of prolonged funk that was totally unfazed by our weekend catch-up with old friends and family in Richmond. i’ve been so funked i couldn’t even write about the weekend, which i’d sincerely planned on doing. my brain just literally locked up…

wine Wednesday: wah-wah

gaaaaahh. you know how when you look forward to something for so long and you just know it’s gonna be awesome? and then it actually happens and you’re like completely on pins and needles about the whole thing for like the first 10 minutes just waiting for the awesome to descend? and then you’re like…

wine Wednesday: the box is back!

  so excited that another case arrived from Naked Wines arrived last week! not excited about the hideous black and blue marks on my arms from hauling the hulking box from office to car on Friday, determined that come hell or high water, i would have it for the weekend. i look like an NFL girlfriend….

wine Wednesday: truth

wine Wednesday: (un)sweet surprise

it was Saturday night. all my favorite neighbors in my little suburban-feeling intown neighborhood were gathered to send off a favorite family who is sadly moving away this coming weekend (they’ll be back). our next door neighbors had fired up the grill and put out a great spread. kids were all playing in the park…

wine Wednesday: writers wining

again, so psyched to have some lovely ladies that, long about Wednesday each week, always want to have a cocktail and chat!  . . . and a husband with a flexible evening schedule this week.  . . . and a favorite former co-worker and mentee (and adorable, smart guy you would like to hang out with and…

wine Wednesday: back to the box!

whew. there was a lot of wine drank this past week. and i can’t honestly say much of it was anything worth writing about! unless you y’all want to hear the details of my White Trash Sunday White Zin in a box . . . i mean, i was at the pool, y’all . . . truly, the…

wine Wednesday: Max’s Wine Dive

oh, hello lovelies. i had planned to spend this post delving into more descriptions of bottles from the giant box of wine, but ended up spending my evening with 3 of my favorite ladies from my former agency life, drinking wine and dishing, instead. so i figure that is way more fun to write about…
