Last year, I had the pleasure of spending a few weeks in Eugene. February, April and July. I wanted to check out the city to consider a relocation and also spend time with my sisters. The weather was challenging. I am a sun kid. Thrive on it, need it and living in Eugene would be challenging. Not enough sun for me.
Still, I did enjoy seeing my sisters. I met this guy at work last night that lives in Eugene. It was cute, he made a list of fun bars to check out. I have learned that my sisters do not venture out from their haunts often. I think we find a new place to frequent when I visit since I love finding new places to eat and drink. I kept the list and hope to check out at least one of them during this visit.
And, this guy knew where Jacksonville was. I am visiting a friend next weekend to sample wine. His wine, that is. I met Jarred my first trip to Napa with the three Sara's and Michaela. Epic adventure. Not only did I fall in love with Napa--wine, food, grapes, celebrate a milestone birthday--I made a lifelong friend who happens to be a winemaker. Love that aspect, too. Not going to lie. Knowing someone that makes spectacular wine is fantastic. I had purchased a few bottles to remember that birthday. When I moved from Denver I drank the wine with two of the Sara's and Michaela and I opened a bottle when I visited Oregon. I need to restock--I think.
Anyways, this is my memory for today. I wish I was closer to my sisters. Luckily, there is the phone and I have fb which enables correspondence, too. Next weekend there will be ample opportunity to laugh, create memories and eat cake. Drink wine, too. I might be the only one drinking wine of my sisters, but, yes, absolutely, wine will be imbibed.
Happy Monday! I am off to yoga, a dress alteration and eventually work.....
