For our wedding shower (way back when) we received a very sentimental gift that really lasts for a few years. In our case, 3 1/2 years. Our friends Sarah and Jessie put together a basket of wines each labeled with a special occasion including Wedding Night, First New Year, First Married Fight (we still have this one!), New Baby, and New House. We finally have opened the second to last bottle of wine and really the one we worked the hardest for. We drank each sip reflecting on the past four weeks of choosing paint colors, sanding every corner, painting, fixing a hole in the wall, ripping up carpet, sanding and polying hard wood floors, hanging closet organizers, moving boxes, hauling loads of trash and recyclables to the dump, etc. Yes, it was all worth it.....and this Cabernet tasted good.
Now, the last bottle of wine is the "First Married Fight" and we haven't even come close to opening. Did I jinx myself?
