A couple months ago, I purchased a LivingSocial deal for a wine and cheese tasting for two at Cobbler Mountain Cellars located in Delaplane, VA. Yesterday, Jeff and I decided to try it out.

I can’t believe we live just an hour away from this:

I loved everything about Cobbler Mountain Cellars as soon as we drove onto the premises.  It definitely helped that we had an absolutely gorgeous weekend in Virgina with temps in the mid to high 60s.

The winery was just as enchanting on the inside as it was on the outside.

I could move in here…

After we finished our tasting, we each ordered a glass of wine and headed outside to enjoy the scenery and our complimentary bread and cheese box. 

So yummy!

We sat and relaxed for about an hour and took everything in. 

I was a happy gal. 🙂 

We’ll definitely be back!

Something Serious

Something serious is going on in my life right now. I’m not talking about the breakup, and I’m not talking about this.

It’s something else. Something that happened yesterday that I don’t feel comfortable discussing yet (or ever).The next few days are going to be tough for me, and although I don’t plan to reveal what’s going on, I’d like to use my blog as an outlet. Writing comforts me, and makes me happy, and that’s what I need right now.

I also have a doctor’s appointment today. Unlike the serious thing I mentioned above, my appointment does concern this. I’m not going to lie, I’m a little scared. OK- I’m A LOT scared. I was supposed to go to a follow-up ultrasound in January, but I didn’t. I went to another doctor in April, and was supposed to get in touch with a breast surgeon, but I didn’t.

Why not? Well, it’s simple. I just didn’t.

I had other things going on in my life that were more important than taking care of myself. That sounds completely ridiculous now that I think about it. I procrastinated because of things going on in my life, but also because I’ve been scared to go through it all again. Now, almost a year later, I’m finally putting myself first and getting it taken care of. Hopefully this time for good. Either way, I’ll keep you updated.

Because the past couple posts have been wayyyy too serious, and not about food at all, I want to show you a few delicious pictures, starting with this:

Half birthday ice cream

This was the half-birthday ice cream my parents bought me a few days ago. You heard right: half-birthday. My family is crazy, and celebrates that kind of stuff. Six months ago today, I turned 24. Now I’m 24.5! Hooray!!!

Grilled Corn

Grilled corn, anyone?  Yes, please.

Whole wheat spaghetti

Whole wheat spaghetti and wine.  Best. Dinner. Ever.

Soy Latte

I’ve been really into going out for coffee with my friends lately. Last weekend it was with Mareesa.

Caramel Soy Latte

And yesterday it was with my friend, Cathy, who I haven’t seen in YEARS. It was good to catch up with. She used to live right next to me, and we were best friends in middle school. 🙂

Now, on a completely unrelated note, here is a goofy self-portrait:


Don’t I look a half year older? I’m so lame!

I’m off to my appointment. Wish me luck!

Have a great Wednesday! <3
