oh heyyyyy, guys. remember me?
i’m still alive! and feeling good on this GOOD Friday morning after a great solo pre-work boot camp in an empty gym. after a crazy week, this was an amazing way to start my day.
i wish i had a good reason for why i have been entirely MIA from the blog world, but really, i’ve just been insanely busy and running around like a crazy person and sleeping when possible, and haven’t had a chance to pop in here and write anything worthwhile. as much as i love writing, i reallllly love living, sooooo…sometimes, even really good things have to take a back seat. 🙂
i have a fun event to recap for you guys today, though! last Friday i went to Wine Riot NYC, which was an absolute blast, and such a well-run (and well-attended) shindig. seriously, if it comes to your city and you have any interest in wine whatsoever, check it out. NYC’s was basically just a huge wine expo, held in an armory, where you could “travel the world” through wine and taste whatsoever suits your fancy. we had fun flitting from South Africa (so good!) to Italy to California…
but my faves were the sparklings. always a sparkling girl. luckily for me, they had a whole area designated solely to sparkling wine/champagne, and some were quite delicious. it was fun to talk to all the pourers as well, as some of them were really educated on their wines and happy to talk them up!
oh, and did i mention there was wine on tap? finally, my type of keg!
between friends and friends of friends, there were about 15 of us altogether, and then we made new friends (because i’m physically incapable of not talking to people when i’m out and about), soooo it was just an all-round super fun night….
as our photo booth shenanigans clearly captured.
they had the best signs and props (mine says “beauty, brains & bubbly,” because i clearly can’t pass up any chance for a bit of alliteration), and i wish i’d gotten into more photos with my other girlfriends. definitely a goal for next time — which i hear will be in the fall?? you can bet i’ll be in attendance!
they had food vendors as well, but i was having too much fun to think about eating, and i meant to check out the DJ too, but that sort of escaped me as well. whoops. all things to aim for next time around!
and on a totally unrelated note: happy Good Friday and Easter weekend to you all! hope you have a lovely, blessed time with family and friends.
