Maybe it was after our trip to Italy, but at some point recently I vowed to stop drinking crappy wine.
And by “crappy,” (excuse my third grade verbiage) I mean wine that I’m just kind of meh about.
Problem is, when it comes to purchasing wine, I have no idea what I’m doing, or how to escape meh. For years I’ve simply wandered the aisles of stores, picking anything that catches my eye with a cutesy label or a funny name, praying to the wine gods my $6.99 bottle tastes close to decent.

Who said that? Was it Mark Twain? Ben Franklin? Socrates? Either way, have wiser words ever been spoken? This week I had to fake flawlessness for work, because after an allergic reaction I was a giant, blotchy mess. Continue reading “The Art of Faking Flawlessness”→
