5 years ago I married my best friend, and I couldn’t be happier. We have an amazing family, great friends, and just a wonderful life together. As I think back on all of our years together, I’m so overwhelmed at all of the wonderful memories we’ve created.
As I sat down to write a post about the great anniversary dinner we were going to make, I found that I couldn’t edit it down to just one meal, just one bottle of wine, just one event. There have been too many good times. Often involving food and wine, but mainly because they’ve involved friends and family and special moments together…which often involve food and wine.
So, instead I’m going to do a post every day for the next 5 days, each about a bottle of wine that represents something special to us. Yes, I could have done this through movies we’ve watched, places we’ve been, the seasons. Whatever. This is Gourmet Mommy: I’m remembering our special times through wine.
In time for Valentine’s day, how do you celebrate your special memories?
Wine #1: Charles de Fere champagne.
Our wedding was awesome. Seriously, the best party ever. In my totally unbiased opinion. We rented this big old mansion in the middle of winter, had all of our friends and family come, and pretended we were having the coolest dinner party ever.
