Last night we got a text from a good friend, we’ll call him Jeff (cuz that’s his name), to go over to his place and look at the results of some conversations he and Hoot had about floor moldings and paint. Jeff put down new wood floors in the common areas and chatted with Hoot about matching up existing paint and some other things and wanted to have a glass of wine (or three bottles) with us to see the progress.
There’s nothing quite like spontaneous wine moments with great people…enjoying life is truly about enjoying each moment (and learning how to make the best out of even the not so good times) because it is ALL the individual moments that make up your life; don’t let it escape you!
These are the labels Jeff shared with us, and for Hoot they were all quite nice but the 2005 Standish Pinot Noir was the home run…a beautiful wine! For Annie (or Mrs. Hoot) it was the McKeon Philips 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon…for sentimental reasons (another story for another day). And that Adelaida Nebbiolo was pretty great, too.
The moral of the story here (if you didn’t already pick that up) is that no matter what’s happening in the day to day of your life, it’s so important to take the time to enjoy friends and family. Chat about life, politics, floor moldings, or whatever! And don’t forget to open that “good” bottle that you’ve been saving, because there’s always a reason to celebrate!!!
