Snow Day!

Happy Snow Day everyone on the East Coast!!!

So far I've managed to play outside, go get my Christmas presents held for my at my rental office, read my new food and wine pairing book (it's awesome), nap like a champ, and shoot some pictures! To celebrate all my accomplishments I decided to treat myself to some Ethel M chocolates and some Taylor Fladgate 20 year old Tawny Port.
Normally I'm more of a Dow's kind of girl, but I drank all that trying to get rid of my Halloween candy ( I told you I was gourmet), and a wino's gotta do what a wino's gotta do....

It looks like the snow's stopped, which means tomorrow at the wine shop will be the busiest Sunday I've ever seen!

Fitting, no?

My Exciting Update!!!

Sorry for the lack of posts, I've been distracted with lots of things lately, most notably a trip to Philly that was totally fun! The reliance on cash and lack of wine shops was weird, but whatever, still fun! (I'm pretty sure it was the company) ;)

So, yes, onto my exciting news, *ahem* I'M GOING TO BURGUNDY!!! This January (oh god I'm going to freeze) I will be going to Burgundy with my boss, our main Burgundy Importer, and a few other wine professionals for a tour of what is possibly my most favorite wine-producing region, Beaune!

I hope to have a good camera (and loads of silk thermal underwear) so I can upload all the pictures I intend to take! I also hope I can get something to cure my fear of flying, because me quaking in fear every time I encounter turbulence isn't pretty, I promise you!

I will post more details later, right now I'm going to go attempt to set the apartment on fire cook!
