The Therapeutic Value of a Bottle of Wine

Yesterday sucked. The weather was nasty, my dad found out that his cancer is possibly back, and a good friend lost his job. It was one of those days that you just want to get back in bed, throw the covers over your head, and hide from the world. My wife and I were both in terrible moods when she got off work. However, this was about to change. We met up at a wine bar, cracked a bottle of riesling, and suddenly the sun started peeking through our mental clouds. Over the next couple of hours, we shared two bottles of wine, some pizza, and some laughs with friends. Yeah, even on a day like yesterday, we were able to laugh!

It just goes to show you that there is something about gathering around a joy in your life- be it wine, a board game, a hobby, or anything- with friends that can make even the worst day seem a bit brighter.

A big shout out to Jeff, Mike and Dylan at 33 wine bar for helping us out. You guys are awesome.
