when i was born, my father purchased a bottle of wine to be opened on my 21st birthday. we neglected to drink it then, and instead waited over 6 years beyond that date, until thanksgiving of 2006. and my goodness, was it a good bottle.

interesting to me, and, if you know me, perhaps you'll find it to be also, that the label illustration is of a seaside motif. i guess even at my birth i was emitting an ocean-loving vibe.

i saved the label using a label remover because i'm sentimental like dat.


  1. That is really sweet! Did he do the same thing for your sister? Or, was the youngest forgotten!!

  2. Awww...that is so awesome! Such a wonderful birthday gift turned Thanksgiving highlight.

    And I love your new bench. Very cool modern look, and you picked great fabric for it.
