Good wine, good friends, and great meat!!
Not nescessarily in that order!
Ari and I, 5 other couples and two men without spouses joined hundreds of other wine lovers last night at the Israel Wine Expo in Tel Aviv .
It was truly a cultural experience. We were handed wine glasses as we entered and walked from kiosk to kiosk filling our glasses - pretending to swish and smell as if we knew what we were doing - and trying different kinds of wines. It was fun, a bit in toxicating and I actually learned that I do not like Merlot red wines and prefer a nice light Sauvignon dry red. I brought home 2 bottles of a merlot/sauvignon mix and another bottle of a very yummy sweet dessert wine.
We laughed alot.
AFTER the wine, we all met at a restaurant in Tel Aviv for some very delicious meat - no more wine - and hot chocolate fudge cake for dessert.
I laughted alot.
Life is so short. When did I stop enjoying it and get so serious?
My soul needs to play more. It just makes life so much more fun - worth living and still meaningful.
Thanks to my wonderful husband for making me go, and to our great friends for organizing the outing!
Know what? I think besides the great wine and food, I got to hang out with people I don't always hang with - and it was refreshing...
Now I'm off to a glass mosaic class.
