Wine Tour

This past weekend was so amazing. Let me explain - in July I read a book called Alphabet Weekends by Elizabeth Noble. I tried to come up with a good book description but it is way too early and I am way too tired. So from amazon.com:

Natalie and Tom have been best friends forever, but Tom wants them to be much more. When Natalie's longtime boyfriend walks out on her just when she thinks he's going to propose, Tom offers her a different and wildly romantic proposition. He suggests that they spend twenty-six weekends together, indulging in twenty-six different activities from A to Z, and at the end of that time Tom's convinced they'll be madly in love. Natalie, however, is not so sure.

Anyway the point of this is, I suggested to B-Rabbit that we try this, so we do Alphabet dates! I did the A date a while ago and he did the B date yesterday. I had no idea where we were going or what we were doing until we got there. It was a wine tour - something neither of us had done. We started at a winery that began with a "B" and went to 6 wineries total. It was a really great experience!



Needless to say, I am still exhausted from the weekend and I don't know how productive I will be at work today. Its really gloomy out today, similar to yesterday so I am hoping to get a run in later today after work.

That's such a great idea-- and the wine tour sounds FUN! What a great weekend-- fantastic run, job offer, and sweet date. Hope despite exhaustion you can hold on to a little of that happiness for the rest of the week.

How fun! I read that book this summer on the beach and thought to myself that it'd be a really good thing to do sometime with a boyfriend/husband. It's fun to see someone out there making it happen.

Also, in response to your comment about running in cooler weather... I LOVE it. We get down to the teens here in our coldest part of the year, but most of the time we hang out in the mid 30s during the day when it's the heart of winter... it's one of my favorite times of the year to run outside.
