A little about me…and how this all began…
One of the original goals for this blog was to help get me motivated to drink more wine. Sounds silly, right? I mean, I love wine – why would I need any other motivation? Well you see…I have this problem with hoarding it. I love buying it, but have a habit of holding on to it to share with people or to open on “just the right occasion.” I thought blogging about wine would mean drinking more of it…which it did but I kept buying it too!
The other topic I really enjoy writing about is dogs – specifically my dogs, Cricket and Penny Lane. Cricket is a Yorkiepoo and Penny Lane is a medium size Goldendoodle. Crazy Poodle hybrids, I know. Ironically, I never set out to have either of these “designer” mixes. They both ended up here at different times and for different reasons but somehow it seems to have been meant to be…they even look remarkably similar. I lovingly refer to them as “The Doodles.” They are always happy to join me on new adventures and explore new parks, farmers markets or trails. One of them even loves going to the wineries almost as much as I do!
My current plan is to blend the two things together and visit as many dog friendly wineries as possible. I’ll keep track of them all right here.
So there you have it…Canines and Cabernet. People always say that you should write about what you love, right?
