Thanks again for all the encouraging, supportive comments and emails you've sent my way. I appreciate all the feedback and kind words. And I hope that if you ever need it, you,too, receive as many kind words from friends, family, and strangers. It carries you a long way...
So...on another note. I've noticed that I frequently have something I want to share - some shopping tidbit or random little thing that hardly seems blog-worthy but that I want to put up here anyway. And while I've come to wince at the "Thursday This" and "Sunday That" that has inundated blogs over the last few years, here I am - joining the ranks. Because Friday is a goof-off day anyway. And what I have to share really are little finds. So the Friday shelf of my blog is where I'll be putting this random stuff.
On with today's randomness.
I have a warm spot in my heart for Coppola wines. Back when my girlfriends from Nashville and I had time, we took several trips. One of my favorite was Napa Valley - we spent most of our day at the Niebaum-Coppola vineyard (as in Francis Ford). Love. That place. It's rich in history, a beautiful property, and overall just a fascinating (and delicious) place.
So when I was last-minute grocery shopping for props for Wes and Amy's shoot, and I ran across Coppola's Rosso, packaged just like so:
I snatched it up.
To me there was something very romantic and cinematic about this little package. I pictured all those romantic movies - couples resting on the hood of the car under the stars with a bottle of wine and a solo cup.
If you want to like red wines but haven't in the past, you'd probably like this one. It's basically a table wine - a mix of several reds. I'm not a connoisseur so I couldn't begin to describe it properly, but I did get a taste and it wasn't overly dry or sweet. Really, a perfect "date wine." It made a great prop and would work nicely to bring along on an outdoor picnic or beach date.
Wait, wha? How did this adorable set of pudgy squish feet get in here?
