Pour Me Some Wine

Publisher: Changing Lives Press

Over the years, we found ourselves going from college-age gals drinking Boones Farm to women with jobs splurging on labels we thought were oh-so-classy, such as Kendall Jackson.  Swiftly, our knowledge grew even more and we matured into women who attended dinner parties instead of just clubs â" or even better: wine bars.  Napa quickly surpassed spring break in Cancun, and before we knew itâ¦we were settling downâ¦having babies and raising a family.  Dinner parties and wine tastings?  Whaaa? We were lucky if we had time to shower.  Wine who?  But, as we often do as mothers â" we persevered.  As the kids grew, we found, and even required, more time for ourselves.  Becoming a mom didnât mean we had to give up everything we knew; it just meant we had to get more creative after a day of âmommy thisâ and someone constantly pulling on our leg or needing our attention.  Rather than attending lavish events where wine was served and we had no bedtime; we grabbed a bottle of red or white depending on the mood or stresses of the day.  Some days required a nice, sweet white for celebration â" say after naptimes proved successful for the third day in a row.  Or, the days that definitely warranted a smooth, bolder red (#epicfail)â"accompanied by a cozy blanket and Netflix.  Whether itâs to celebrate or to unwind; wine certainly has not lost its purpose in our lives. 

We are mommoisseurs. (Mommoisseurs: wine enthusiasts who happen to be fabulous moms).  And we invite you to become mommoisseurs with us!

Then chapter 3 is for you! Is your husband driving you crazy, go straight to chapter 7. No matter the mood, youâll find a story that you can relate toâ"driving home the beauty that youâre not alone in this crazy world of motherhood!
