So I went to a wine tasting today over at finewine wine shop in Gaithersburg, and I had a damn good time. I used to never understand how folks could by an entire box of wine just to sit it in their house, but after attending today's event, I now understand. There are so many different kinds of wine, that go with so many different types of food and dessert, so it would actually be cool to have lots of different options. The highlight of the event? Drinking a 32 year old Riesling that aged perfectly. I had relatively sober during the entire tasting, but once I drank that I was good and tipsy. Good times indeed.

Since I was over in Gaithersburg, Maryland, I decided to drive by the house I grew up in over in Potomac, MD. Of all the places my parents moved my brother and I to during my childhood, that house still means the most to me. Not just because it was a nice house, but because that's where I saw my parents at their closest, and its also where I saw them split up and divorce. So I was saddened and nostalgic at the same time..needless to say, I won't be doing that anymore. Given the new found happiness I am running into in all other aspects of my life, it really does me no good to go backwards..

enough rambling.
