HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY.
Warming wool socks, bright sunshine, a perfect Satsuma– so sweet and juicy.
Hugs from friends, silly memes shared in group chats, all things green and growing.
Aching muscles, a forgotten lump of Morbier in the fridge, my cat.
Crisp white wine, a favourite jumper, good music playing in the background all day long.
These are the things that I want to acknowledge on Valentine’s day, the little everyday things that lift me up and fill my life with so much joy. Love can be inspired by so many people, places, and things and I think we should celebrate these things every year on Valentine’s Day. And every day after that, too.
Photos originally taken for a Bottle Bitches magazine feature, which no longer exists in the ether, in which I described this Loimer Gruner Veltliner as tasting like an explosion of citrus with a briny finish, and then suggested pairing it with a big sailboat in the Mediterranean. Naturally.
