On Saturday, my darling friends Jess, Tara, and I went to the wine fest at Forest Park.
It was a beautiful day (especially considering how cold Sunday was!), but it was even better to get to spend time with my friends... I haven't seen them much lately (remember how marathon training is ruining my social life?) and it was good just to catch up.
We sampled bunches of wine. Tara and Jess tried a wide variety while I stuck with my known and loved Riesling (or just sweet white). I know what I like... and that's for my wine to taste like sugar.
And that's how this happened... I was telling a vendor my wine preference and then we started talking about K-State.
Then he gave me a bottle. I'm pretty sure this was not sanctioned wine fest behavior, but I was thrilled!
So... after I finished that I headed back and told him he was my favorite. We decided a photo was in order...
...and then he gave me another bottle.
I was so happy.
Since I had two bottles, I gave my free beer tickets to Jess and Tara... I was not in need of beer.
We had dinner and then David picked me up...
Driving was not in my future Saturday. Since I had run 15 miles that morning AND I hadn't had a drop of alcohol since Labor Day (geesh, I'm getting old and boring!), it hit me rather quickly.
Luckily, my husband is UBER protective.
