Mr. Sweet and I enjoy bringing wine when we visit friends, but I am always overwhelmed and intimidated when I stop into my local liquor store and see rows of bottles. I never know what to buy – reds, whites, sparklers or rosés? I read labels and ask for help from the sommelier. Mr. Sweet, on the other hand, finds the funniest label and hopes for the best.
A couple of months ago I came across a blog called Brunellos Have More Fun. Whitney has helped tremendously with picking out wines for the right occasions and making me feel more comfortable in the store. She also has a wonderful Webcast called “The Crush”. Do check her out if you are interested in learning more about what you have or should be drinking.
Also, should you not want to delve into the details of wines and where they come from The New York Times has a great article on 20 Memorable Bottles for $20.
As a renter this is a dream come true.

Le Sigh. If only my husband would agree to this one.
Adorable for the kitchen.
Something clicked a few weeks ago.
I had been working on multiple projects at work. At the end of my work day, I’d find myself coming home to cooking/cleaning/laundry/more work; it seemed nothing was getting completed and more things were being thrown on my plate. I was pulling myself in twenty different directions, on multi-tasking overload. I thrive on working hard and playing hard. But there comes a time when you just need to stop. Be it a couple of hours, a day or a week. You need to gather yourself up and step away from the everyday to-do-lists and just relax.
So we booked a spontaneous cruise to Bermuda.
Don’t get me wrong. We don’t have money to throw around on trips, but both Mr. Sweet and I knew we needed to get away. I was overloaded and he is starting a new job in just a week’s time. We agreed to take this opportunity to go on a vacation. So three weeks before the boat sailed, we booked our trip. The day before we were to sail, we packed.
The trip was pure bliss. Days of endless ocean, pinks sands, teal waters, mid-day naps, tropical drinks, laughter and falling in love with the island.
We are now refreshed.
The last couple of months have been a whirlwind. So many things have been tossed onto our plate. Since Mr. Sweet is starting a new job at the end of July, we decided to book a vacation before he starts. We were able to get a great price on a cruise and leave in a mere few weeks. There are so many things to do before then, but we are counting down the days. Every morning I send Mr. Sweet a text reminding him how many days we have till we ship off.
I am looking forward to kicking my feet up, having a frozen drink and taking in some sun. It is a much needed vacation.
After what feels like an eternity we took out our signed wedding guitar.
These days, the possibilities are endless when it comes to guest books for weddings. Mr. Sweet and I didn’t want everyone to just sign their name in a book that would collect dust so we searched for alternatives. We wanted them sign a memorable keepsake which could be displayed in our home. After an extensive search, we came across the idea to have everyone sign a guitar. We both are so in love with music so we thought it would be a perfect fit.
I love waking up each morning to see the sun shining upon it.
