Today has been a long day. Whereas most of my friends enjoy their Saturdays spending time with their family, I enjoy mine helping other families celebrate their lives together. You all know I LOVE every minute of what I do, however it is nice to unwind after a long day of making children and babies smile!
I knew tonight when I came home I was going to have time to curl up with a book and relax with a nice glass of wine. Lucky for me I always keep my wine fridge stocked with an amazing selection of wines from Time for Wine. The only difficult decision is deciding what I am in the mood for. Tonight as I stare in my little fridge (I think I need a bigger one) the bottle of Conte Rosso from Il Conte Villa Prandone jumps out at me. Ah yes. This is exactly what I am in the mood for tonight.
I fumble with my corkscrew and wrestle with the bottle to get it open as quickly as possible. Oh my, the aroma from the bottle is amazing and is screaming for me to drink it right now! I pour a glass and take another deep breath. This time I slowly inhale and enjoy the scent from my nose all the way down. Thank you Charles for suggesting this wine … I knew before even taking a sip that this was going to be a well loved glass (or glasses) of red.
The incredible aromas did not lie. As I took my first sip, I thought to myself … “Hmmm do I really need to read a book tonight? Or should I just enjoy my evening cuddled up with my wine glass?!”
Conte Rosso was everything I thought it would be. What a great way to end a long day and what an incredible wine to sip and enjoy.
I know this is a bit of an unusual blog posting … but for those of you who know how I feel at the end of the day, because you feel the same way too … I just thought I would share!
Love you guys and I hope everyone enjoys their Memorial Day weekend!
