Happy Valentine's Day!!

I hope each of you are spending this weekend doing what makes you happy! Now, that could either be with someone or not...but whatever it is I hope you are happy. I spent my pre-Valentine's Day with my mom, sister and brother-in-law at the Celtic Woman concert at the Durham Performing Arts Center. All I can say is WOW. They may not be your thing but I can tell you that if you love a beautiful voice and wonderful music and beautiful women, you would be so enchanted by their show. You can catch their shows on public TV but in real-life they are simply beautiful. The facility is amazing and I encourage you to visit for a show sometime.

While there today I met some wonderful folks (well, not all who sat near us were wonderful as one person turned around right when the show started and asked us if we could possibly stop talking but I tried not to let her steal my joy being there!) But I digress, sorry. I met two couples who were there sharing special moments in their life, one a 25th wedding anniversary and another a husband's 40th birthday. One lady works on her family dairy farm and they make cheeses so I thought...would my customers like cheese added to the store? We already have some gourmet items and do plan to add more this Spring and Summer. I think it would be a good addition so I will look into what it would entail.

What a wonderful way to spend Valentine's Day...with the people I love.

All the best to you.

Happy Super Bowl!!!

Really...all this hype to watch a bunch of men play football?? I admit I am watching it, but I like it for the commercials. Love the ones with all the animals this year!!! The dog with the anti-bark collar, the Clydesdale and the steer for Budweiser, the chickens. Too cute. Plus, you have to love the E-Trade commercial with the babies!

But back to MyleStone...We took January to sort of gather our thoughts and plan for the Spring and new year. We didn't have a wine tasting in January but our first for 2010 was a HUGE success. This past Friday, Feb 5th, we had our Sweetheart Wine Tasting and not even the rain kept folks from attending. As usual, we had folks from Farmville and Greenville and the feeling was one of fun and happiness. People were happy to be out of the house and when they left us, they went straight to Plank Road Steakhouse and had a delicious meal and more good wine!!

We had a fabulous time and are already planning for the next one which will be held on March 5th and it will be a celebration of my 40th birthday. Ahhh...that does not mean you are entitled to tell old people jokes or make a point to say that you are younger than I am.

So, know that I am blaming my delay on blogging (I know I have been slack, sorry) on the fact that we have been planning away for the new year. I will not blame it on my pending birthday and the itty-bitty bouts of pouting about getting older I have been doing. That surely isn't the reason....

As always, we are looking forward to seeing you soon. Take care.
