When you think of summer, most likely you consider Chardonnay or margaritas… but open up a Cab if you like a Cab. I like a Cab, no matter the season.
And the Napa Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon is always a good bottle to open. Clean and easy-drinking, this is a relaxed wine to open while serving buttery popcorn for Netflix night or marinated flank steak with grilled asparagus for a dinner party.
Chico’s “so slimming” pants live up to their outrageous claim – they are super flattering and extremely comfy.
The last time I wore this outfit, I had my brand-new millennial pink (I knowwwww…. but it’s a neutral version and I like it) Tory Burch cross-body bag which did not contain the essentials that older clutches normally contain: cash, lipgloss, and at least one tampon
I think you know where this is going.
This is the guy you want to marry
I considered including the hilarious screenshot of the photo of my husband snuggling with a box of tampons with the message “Best Wine Dinner Ever” to accompany this post… but, I am sensitive to the everlasting bite-you-in-the-rear element that accompanies posting photos on the www.
I’ll spare him the embarrassment of imagery but not the story.
We were at a New York Prime wine dinner (fancy) – which he was working (he’s a wine manager; going to wine dinners is part of his job; #toughjob) – and with any event, there were a few tense moments that needed to be finessed.
He finally sat down to eat his caesar salad… when I rushed to the table clad in white jeans and whispered, “do you happen to have a tampon in your car?” like he was my sorority sister from college.
And rather than question my sanity or ability to look at a calendar, he put down his fork and walked out of the door. A few minutes later I got the text message which made me giggle.
Like a drug dealer making an exchange in a public place, he returned with the item and discreetly placed it my hand. Without a beat. Then picked up his fork and ate his caesar salad.
That’s the guy you want to marry, friends: the one who has your backside, handles chores, and follows it up by making you laugh.
We just celebrated 12 years (!) and having a true partner – one that changes diapers at 2am, runs out for tampons during the salad course at a wine dinner, unloads the dishwasher (a task I truly loathe), is in charge of replinishing toilet paper, and a million other tasks that somehow fall completely on women in other households… that’s what has made my life / career / balance achievable. I’m not expected to excel at work, then transition into a domestic goddess servant at 5:30pm.
Marry the guy that makes you his equal, and then takes on just a little bit more to make you happy.
