NC Wine Festival

Occasionally... occasionally... we get off the farm and out on the town. Occasionally.

Back in May (I know... May... it is pushing late August but I couldn't post this before! I'm playing catch up!) we went to the North Carolina Wine Festival with a couple of friends.

These are our friends. J and D. We spend a fair amount of time with them, actually. J isn't an overwhelming animal lover so it must be my winning personality and fabulous wit that keeps him around. I've known J since middle school. We've seen each other in our gawkiest of phases and yet he doesn't cringe at the sight of my face. It's a miracle!!

Moving on.... it was super duper hot that day. DM and I hadn't yet told anyone of the growing bambino so it is fortunate that I'm not a wine drinker or it would have most definitely caused suspicion.

This sangria, however, did look mighty refreshing as I stood in the blistering sun. Too bad for me!!

I think everyone else had a marvelous time, however. They definitely enjoyed all of the different wines from the region. And I definitely enjoyed the Italian Ice cart that was set up on the outskirts of the festival. And then we all enjoyed listening to a little Chairman of the Board who played that afternoon.

DM felt a little guilty tasting all of the wine with me standing there watching glass after glass after glass go down. But deep down, I know he loves the fact that he has an automatic Designated Driver!
