Sometimes, there’s just a moment you remember. No context, no recall on how that moment came to be, just that moment sticks in your brain forever.

Dan and I share one of those moments. There is a place in Washington D.C. we used to go to for special nights out, or sometimes just because.It’s called the Tabard Inn. In DC, no one really has a proper living room, so the Tabard was the place to go to sit in front of a fire, drink some amazing wine, and sometimes have some amazing food under a parachute.

So this moment was one of those evenings, sitting in front of a roaring fire on a plush sofa with Dan drinking Ridge Lytton Springs. I don’t know why we were there or where we were going later, but at that moment, nothing could be better.

On our honeymoon, in Healdsburg, CA, we were actually staying near Lytton Springs so made the journey to the motherland. It looked close on the map, so we decided to walk against the advice of our friendly bartender. It wasn’t really close, but a beautiful day in February in California made up for our sore feet.

So we sat, in the vineyards at Lytton Springs, drinking Ridge, remembering the moments that are so special to us and creating a new one at the same time.Ridge Lytton Springs

Last night I made Balsamic Marinated NY Strips, baked potatoes, and steamed asparagus for our anniversary dinner–the perfect accompaniment to a bold Zinfandel. steak and potatoes
