Writing Handwritten Notes ♥️







There’s no denying the wonders of electronic messages, but nothing captures a moment like putting pen to paper. I challenge you send someone you care about a handwritten note. 📝 This random act of kindness is so rare these days, I’ve discovered it offen it results with an immediate response of an appreciative phone call from the gushing recipient. Try it.

If it’s been awhile, here’s some tips on how to write ♥️ love letters to each other.
1. Invest in good paper or note cards and a quality pen. Be sure to have stamps on hand and get them to the mailbox promptly after writing to ensure they actually get sent. Carry a few cards with you in case the opportunity or inspiration strikes to write a few thoughtful words throughout the day.

2. Do handwritten messaging intentionally and set the mood for crafting thoughtful messages. For example, I sit at my desk, occasionally gaze at the city view and write a few notes at a time. Light a candle, sip coffee, tea or wine, play soft music and dedicate a small but significant time to it.

3. Don’t worry about what to say. This doesn’t need to be a big undertaking. A few thoughtful sentences is all you need. Due to social networks, we all know what’s going on in each other’s life. Think about the person you’re writing to and write a compliment or a congratulation, send encouragement or condolences if needed. I saw, read or remembered the time...and thought of you is a good start. Once you get going, you’ll find it’s easy and rewarding to write someone. Write spontaneously, genuinely and be encouraging if necessary.

Your words matter and someone you care about may need to hear from you more than you know.
It’s a small but significant movement to resurrect the handwritten word. I believe the world would be a more gentle place if we started communicating intentionally and thoughtfully with each other.

I’ve started something called the #HandWrittenWordMovement. Share, participate and be a world changer one handwritten word at a time. ✍️

"Kind words are like honey - sweet to the soul and healthy for the body." Proverbs 16:24

Marys & Mimosas - Booze for Breakfast

Bringing Back The Breakfast Drink                  Marys and Mimosas

Both the Bloody Mary and Mimosa make it socially acceptable to drink before noon.  While this can be a problem if the drinking continues all day, on its own, a Mary or a Mimosa is a beautiful thing.
The Bloody Mary can be a meal in itself - a healthy sounding one at that with a slightly morbid name. Bloody Marys traditionally are made with vodka and tomato juice which is then heavily spiced and garnished. Some say this drink was conceived in Paris in the roaring 20's.  Others trace it back to the 30's as a cure to the dreaded hangover. Either way, this breakfast cocktail has evolved with many twists being added along the way.
The Mimosa, on the other hand, is a mainstay of the classy champagne brunch with a straightforward recipe: champagne or sparkling wine and orange juice. Yes, this is a drink you can make yourself. It was supposedly invented in back in 1925 at a Parisian Hotel. As with most cocktails, there a…

Are some wines more romantic than others?

Absolutely! Port for instance is a seductively slow sip that vies for the title of most romantic wine. Additionally, Port is ideal for winter thanks to the warmth of brandy added during the winemaking process. 
I’m thrilled about receiving the highly anticipated release of Quinta de la Rosa’s 30-Year-Old Tawny Port. This collectible port celebrates the thirtieth anniversary since the Father/Daughter team of Tim and Sophia Bergqvist started Quinta de la Rosa in the Douro. This beautiful amber color port is aged well for three decades. Respectfully, slow down and don’t rush this. This is definately a bottle you need to spend some time with. It has enormous elegance and complexity. 

Winemaker’s Notes: On the nose, slightly dried fruit aromas with touches of balsamic vinegar, coffee and exotic wood being just some of the components. On the palate it is simply delicious, almost light but with incredible intensity of flavor, soft, mouth filling with great persistence. Food Match: Best served…

Drink Pink! The rise of Rosé

Rosé sales has exploded in the US over the past few years, especially during the warm weather months. It taste like summer and all the best ways. In France, it now eclipses the sale of white wine. Yes, everything‘s coming up rosé.

It’s not surprising that when the acclaimed Argentina’s Bodega Santa Julia from chose select wines for the "wine in a can" trend, they picked a luscious rosé.

This Malbec Rosé is bursting with summer berries such as strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. I found it charmingly crisp and delicate on the palate. It’s an easy sip and a good balance between sugar and acidity. It’s an ideal pairing for weekends at the lake, alfresco dining and adventure.
I get the convenience of the grab and go can but I’m still packing stemware as sticking your nose in the glass and taking in the aroma effects the taste. Yes, im that into wine. A rosé is a very food friendly wine and pairs with almost anything. Personally, I love rose with grilled seafood and it’…
