Last week was filled with family, friends, food, and libations – a combination for fun times. My mom came over with my brothers to celebrate our first new year’s dinner together on Monday. I also got to catch up with friends throughout the week over happy hour and a thoroughly enjoyable wine tasting night-in. My contribution was the Francis Coppola Merlot and I got to discover a few new favorite reds: a well-rounded and smooth Duckhorn Cabernet Sauvignon and a slightly sweet and soft sparkly Unruly Zinfandel. Those are definitely going into my wine go-to list. I ended an already good week by cooking dinner for friends. On my Happiness Project calendar, February 1st reads: “What are your favorite parts of your ordinary day?” The question is very fitting for this project.
