Yesterday was the first day in many months where I didn’t wake up dreading my day. In fact, I was very pleasantly nuzzled awake by my adorable daughter, Zaffron. She gently slipped herself under the bed covers, snuggled her body into mine and cooed and clucked little noises that reminded me of when she was a baby. The last few months have been difficult and I was immediately grateful for this precious little bit of love. That is, until she said,
“Mommy, you smell terrible. You smell like hot chicken.”
Recommended wine: When I think “hot,” I think of the beach. When I think “chicken,” I think Sauvignon Blanc. So, today I recommend The Beach House White. It’s from South Africa. It’s actually 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon which is fun, and it’s wickedly inexpensive.
