Something To Wine About

This past weekend, my husband's siblings, and their wonderful spouses {yep, that would include me}, went wine tasting and on a tour of several vineyards in Michigan.


Though there were reasons to whine...

Like the chartered bus we reserved never showed up SO we ended up having to take a short yellow school bus to our tastings.


And that the bus' windows would not close.


Or that it rained ALL day long.


Those bumps in the road {which are felt even more intensely while riding in a school bus} only added to the adventure.


Things may not always work out like you plan


but life is what you make of it.


So here is a toast, to all those moments in life that you could whine about...


Sometimes, it just a matter of seeing the glass as half full instead of half empty.

    but guess what, the bumpier the ride the better because it will make you appreciate what's ahead of you even more...life is good!

  3. That looks like a lot of fun...even if things did not work out as planned. At least they had plenty of wine for you to have along the way. That probably made it a little easier. What a great idea. Megan

  6. We went wine tasting last weekend too! It was a blast! Love the bus, I wish we had had one for when we went. Instead my husband had to do the driving, so I did most of the drinking ;)

  9. Oh that looks lovely - there is something funny about talking a school bus to go drinking! I love vineyards. Even though being in the rain sucks they look beautiful wet.

  15. Wow! What a terrific outlook you have. You've inspired me with your perspective and I'm glad I stopped by. And, I LOVE that rolled into the wine gallery via the short bus. :-)
