A Seinfeldian day of nothing, punctuated by some of the greatest wine we have ever had.

7:00 AM – Meh. I’m awake, I’m up, but I’m not really feeling like I should be getting up yet. I suspect there will be a nap in my future today.

10:35 AM – I sneak into the bedroom to make sure Tracey is still breathing. Really. And she is.

Sleeping past 10 AM used to be her thing, but she hasn’t been doing as much of it lately. But she knows this is supposed to be a day of relaxation….a day to recover from the last 6 days of madness…..and she is clearly going all in. As a wise man once said,


10:39 AM – She must have heard me mocking her as she is stirring.

10:42 AM – Nope, false alarm. I hear snoring through the door.

She’s up, and I’m down. I am exhausted and need a nap, but can’t get myself to get back to sleep. I guess I’ll have a bath instead. That is still pretty damn relaxing.

3:30 PM – Neither of us has left the room today. And I suspect we won’t.

We are well into the wine already, and this is gonna be a really exciting day. I say that because I know what we are having with our Filet Mignon for dinner.

The first wine is one I have enjoyed and rated before, Twomey Sauvignon Blanc. You can see the review here.

Up next, a special little Pinot from one of our favorite producers.

That’s a pretty awesome wine. Know what makes it seem even better? It’s not the best wine we had tonight.

That’s a pretty damn good day of “pre-birthday” wine!

Tomorrow is the day that I leave my 40’s, and we head back to the Magic Kingdom to celebrate!
