Giving Thanks...

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It is a time for fellowship and to give thanks for all that is in our life. I wanted to say thank you for your support since MyleStone Gallery and Wines became a reality on June 13, 2009. It has been wonderful to meet you and talk with you and share handmade items and wine (of course) with you.

My mom is coming again this year to spend it with Britt and I and we can't wait for her to arrive. Ben is excited because he will get to sleep with her (I will truly be forgotten for 5 days) and she will give him plenty of treats 'just because'. No matter that his butt is getting big like his momma's, she will still feed him treats because he is pretty, sweet, a good boy, listened well (for once)...I think you get the idea. But nonetheless, we will be enjoying our time together and sharing some good wine of some even better food. She will be ready to help us decorate the store...yes, I refused to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving as to me it just rushes everything. And then, she will help us decorate our houses. It is a wonderful time with family for me.

This is a very special time of year and I hope you are spending it with those you love. Remember those who may not have that chance and always give thanks for all God has given you.

I hope you and your family and friends have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving.

May you be blessed always...

I better get with it...

And not keep everyone on pins and needles wondering what I might write about next. I have admitted it here before and I will admit it again...I know I have been slack in writing. But gosh, I have been too busy planning our next wine tasting which is this Thursday, Nov 19th!

It really was only 3 weeks ago that we had our last tasting, but with Thanksgiving next week we knew we had to plan something for this week so everyone could pick up wines for their holiday meal. We have some very special and delicious wines in store for you! How does almond champagne sound? Or a divine Lambrusco? How about a refreshing Riesling? The only way you can find out how fun and delicious these wines are is to come visit us Thursday from 5:30-7:30.

You should start your meal preparations on Thanksgiving the way we do...with wine. A light breakfast, put the turkey in the oven, drink a bit of wine. Mix the sweet potato souffle, start some pies, drink some more wine. Food on the table, eat til you're full and drink...well you get the idea.

Good wine will make your meal even better as it enhances all the flavors...I mean not that you would need wine to make your meal better...as I am sure you are a much better cook than I. Simply put, if you eat my cooking on Thanksgiving...you are going to want plenty of really good wine.

Come see us Thursday, have a good time and pick up some wines to make your meal better...ah, I mean complete.
