Celebrating in Style

Although we returned home last week, I have been quiet on here, trying to get my life in order (what’s that?) after vacation.  I will, however, have much to say after this weekend.  This past Sunday marked one year from my first post , on SAHMmelier.  It just so happens that this Friday is the 10th annual Tour de Vin  put on by The Wine and Food Foundation of Texas.    Can you think of a better way to celebrate?  Here is a snippet from their website:

10th Annual Tour de Vin

Friday, August 24th, 2012 6:30-9:30 pm W Austin

One of the Foundation’s premier events each year, Tour de Vin is a get-your-passport-stamped style wine and food tasting featuring fine wine from around the world and the best domestic and internationally-inspired cuisine in Central Texas. This globetrotting culinary showcase highlights some of Austin’s favorite chefs and 15-20 wineries presenting a cosmopolitan array of samplings which are accompanied by live multi-cultural performances throughout the evening. The evening is complete with a silent auction featuring extraordinary wines, foodie favorites, and unique packages including a helicopter trip to Formula 1 with Capital Wings and tickets to see the GoGo’s at ACL live

If you live in the Austin area and do not yet have plans to go, tickets are still available.  Call your sitter.  Dust off your cocktail dress and come on down!  If you are not in Austin, well, you will have to wait for the write up.

Being a stay- at-home mom can leave one thirsting for a taste of the outside world, a world in which sentences are composed of more than three words. Being an educator means one is always seeking an opportunity to explore and learn. Being a woman with a need to connect can be a challenge when adult conversations are rare. In wine, I find the marriage of art and science, agriculture and storytelling provides limitless areas to explore. But it is the people that keep me engaged. The tenacity needed to keep the family dream alive, the risk to start anew, the trials and principles. I love the history of the vine, the impact of a season, the sentiment in the bottle. That is why I write. I write to tell their stories, to share a piece of mine. I write to learn as I teach others. I write to connect with new friends, to disconnect from the world. I write to celebrate what makes each of us unique, and that which ties us together.
