Dessert/ Dinner

A Good Grape

Good evening 🙂

I hope everyone enjoyed a restful Sunday. Around 5:30 I enjoyed a glass of one of my favorite wines ever…



I LOVE Julia’s Vineyard Pinot Noir. I still can’t believe I was there…and I even got the pleasure of meeting Julia! This Pinot Noir is incredibly light and easy to drink…almost TOO easy to drink. Lots of fruity flavors….it’s so me. I was very excited to see it was on sale at ABC today!

Other than a glass of wine, I did snack on a yogurt with some Udi’s…love that stuff.
And I helped my mom make shrimp scampi for dinner! This is one of my favorite meals!
Dessert was an unpictured piece of Swiss chocolate with hazelnuts! 🙂
Excited to lay low and read tonight. I’ve got a ton on my mind and need a little break!

    I’m going to have to try and find that wine – I mean seriously how could I not want it – I share a name with it!

    Ok…I know i have posted this again…but I keep thinking of you while I read my current book…Born to Run. I think of all your running problems, pain, etc..orthotics…and really you need to read this book. It’s facinating. Start finding a place to run barefoot! It might help…I sure am going to try it when I return to NC….on beach sand. The book states that a lot of problems we have with running are caused by modern day running shoes. Jenna…Read the book…its a GREAT one…interesting, funny, amazing stories…etc. Everyone should read it…then go run! 🙂

    Swiss chocolate with hazelnuts? I’ll have some of that please!! I am hoping for a restful day tomorrow – today was super fun but very OTT. Lots of eating, drinking and being very merry! Ha ha. So fun that you were at that vineyard so very recently…great memories I bet.

    I am really into Pinot Noir after you taught us about it in your wine series. I will look for the Julia Pinot Noir, I love the one with the fruity finishes!
