C & J came over last night to hang. We did our blind wine tasting. It was all reds. We had: Pinot noir, merlot, brunello, Syrah, and a sweet red. The price points were: $10, $20, $30, $50, and $100. I did horribly this round and only managed 1 point. The sweet red was obviously the easiest to identify. Anyway – wine (and pizza) ftw!
We sat around talking for like six hours, and it was lovely. They’re one of my favorite couples because they are so easy to talk to, especially now. They don’t shy away from talking about my cancer or death, and that’s exactly what I need. We’re lucky to have them, and I’m grateful that D will have them to lean on when the time comes.
Here’s a pic of Sansa from last night, just because she’s so damn cute:
Carrie and I hit the road this morning to visit our old stomping grounds in Columbia. We had lunch at a favorite restaurant, and then visited campus, where I got my shop on at the school bookstore. I needed a new Mizzou Law tee since mine is filled with holes, and I’m happy to report I’m now the owner of a brand new one. I also picked up some swag for the kids since they both have talked about maybe going to Mizzou. It was great to be back there and remember all the things from such a fun and carefree time in my life.
We had so much to talk about and I feel like we talked non-stop all day. It was perfect and so very good for my soul.
