6 hours away

This past weekend my sister and I planned a birthday day trip for my mommy to Williamsburg Winery.  I’m definitely not a wine-o (here’s the official definition for that term since I had to double check it!), but we thought it would be fun and very Real Housewives-ish of us.  The Mr. graciously agreed to watch the bambino and why not?  He’s the cutest, sweetest thing around!  🙂

Our day trip included lunch at the tavern, a tour of the wine making facilities, and a tasting of 7 varieties.  Lunch was good.  I got a basic turkey sandwich with smoked gouda and a mixed green salad.  The extraordinary part of this lunch was the dressing, very mustardy.  It really hit the spot.  Included in our lunch was our sandwich, salad, a glass of wine of our choosing, and a fresh baked cookie (of course I went with the chocolate chip).  I picked a chardonnay for my lunch and enjoyed it.

The tour was very informative, and our guide had the sarcastic humor that only some people can appreciate.  Fortunately, my sister, mom, and I can and were giving him the laughs some of the others in our group were not.

We finished off our time there with a few tastings and then headed off for some tea/coffee on our way home.  It was perfectly relaxing and exactly what I needed after a hectic week back at work.  All in all, I was only away from Holdie for six hours.  It felt so long!  By the time we were sipping our hot beverages, I was dying to get home!  It’s funny how much I felt chained to him and maybe even a little resentful when he was first born that I was the one he was really dependent on (compounded by my choice to breastfeed).  Now, I can’t bear to be away from him for too long.  The work day seems long, and I find myself finding ways to go faster, get more done in less time to get home to him.  I love him.  🙂

By the way, the Mr. did a fantastic job and even managed to vacuum the house while we were gone.  What a keeper, huh!??!!?
