Wine and Sunshine

I'm utterly exhausted after a very full day, but it was fabulous and absolutely worth it. The morning started off with the discovery that it was actually rainy. I love the rain, but I definitely wasn't expecting it this morning. The bf and I met up with the Manager and a group of about 18 other young adults from our church group this morning to drive up for a day of wine tasting at the bf and my favorite winery. We organized the trip and I have to say it turned out extremely well. We had such a great turnout and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. You're probably sitting there wondering how that could be with the rain I said we had. The bf and I were laughing because every time we've gone to this winery it's been really stormy and rainy at home, but the sun always peeks out and it's always beautiful at the winery...today was no exception.

Everyone in the group really seemed to have a great time. They did wine tasting and the owners made pizza in their brick oven with wood from 50 year old oak wine barrels. The pizzas may have originally been from Costco, but boy did they turn out fantastic. I think that was about the tastiest pizza I've ever had. It was so great to see the owners again, the bf gets along particularly well with the husband of the operation...just today he decided that the bf was like his son. It was really cute. He asked if we wanted to work at the winery, helping out when he and his wife can't be there to do tastings. I'm going to send him my photos from today for their website...the bf and I want to get up there to do a photo shoot sometime, and we've offered to help out at special events and whatnot up there. I'm really excited. I just absolutely love it up there and they are just such wonderful people. I know that we brought them a lot of business today because not only did we do the wine tasting and pizzas, but a number of people in our group bought a bottle or two of wines to take with them. I really hope that the bf and I are able to have our own winery someday. :)

We came straight down to his parents' church when we got back to help out with the Bazaar. It was a lot of fun...we were there last night until nearly 10 helping get the booths set up...yes there's a bit of a story there, but that's for another post. Without doing anything I managed to irritate my knee up through my hip (seriously, it's acting like I abused it going non-stop crazy at Disneyland for 12 hours) Typically, I compensated for it with my right side, and now of course my right hip is protesting too. I swear I'm only 23. Anyways, I'm just about done icing and the ibuprofen is kicking in. I think it's about time for bed.

Wine and pizza sound great! But, I'm sure you could've done without the injury.

Denise-I did, thanks :) Stupid knee and hip...I seriously don't know what triggered it. I didn't DO anything. Lol. But it's all better now.

Momo-It was delicious! Yeah...the injury part was annoying since I hadn't done anything to cause it. Sometimes my body is stupid like that. But it's all better now.

Oh, wine and sunshine and pizza, what a great combination.

Glad your knee and hip injury pain is all gone.

And to think I'm stuck in the house with fighting kids. Life's so not fair.

Jaina said...

Renie - It really was. And thank you :)

Johnina - If I were closed I'd offer to babysit so you could sneak out and get wine and pizza ;)
