Tonight before falling asleep think about when we will return to the street.
When we hug again, when all the shopping together will seem like a party.
Let’s think about when the coffees will return to the coffee bars, the small talk, the photos close to each other.
We think about when it will be all a memory but normality will seem an unexpected and beautiful gift.
We will love everything that has so far seemed futile to us.
Every second will be precious.
Swims at the sea, the sun until late, sunsets, toasts, laughter.
We will go back to laughing together.
(Lovely words from Pope Francis)
Happy Easter!! Cheers!! xo

c. 1797 Love this description of this beautiful home. “Magnificent 1797 center chimney colonial in the heart of the Village. On the Historical Society house tour in 1973, this 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath home has grand living and dining rooms, wood-burning fireplaces, a spacious private walled garden, and a detached garage. Many of the original features remain including matching gun closets flanking the front door, wide board chestnut floors and open hearth fireplaces.” (Zillow.com)

It all started with a Polaroid camera 📸 .
.
.
That was the first gift that I opened on Christmas morning when I was 8 years old and I started taking pictures of EVERYTHING. My second camera was a Nikon and I took even more pictures and even had to take them to get developed before I could see them. I know, flashback to the past. .
.
.
After another camera upgrade and about 15 years later, I’m still taking photos and now I get to help individuals build their businesses with photos and engaging social media content. Anyone else thinking of turning a hobby into their dream job?

⭐️It’s #winewednesday again, and with the weather finally warming up, I thought it would be fitting to talk about one of my favorite summer wines called Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie. 🥂
.
.
Yes I know that is quite a mouthful, so allow me to break it down for you. This wine comes from the Loire Valley with a cool maritime climate dominated by the Atlantic Ocean. Muscadet is the area in the Loire valley where the grape melon de Bourgogne is grown and used to make this wine. .
.
These wines are fairly heavy bodied, mineral driven and have clean green apple and citrus with a touch of bready notes. The mouth feel is fairly creamy with just enough acidity to keep it balanced. .
.
Wine pairing🥂: OYSTERS for sure! Or any other light seafood dish. I’m also fond of sipping this on the back porch by itself. .
.
Now that you know a little bit about this wine, what would you pair with it?
