Picture it 1983, or 1984; those days were a bit blurry for one reason or another having nothing to do with wine. Two fresh-faced twenty-something year olds graduating from university with still not dry business degrees in hand already talking about possibly taking classes again. But of course for fun this time!
The idea would return every year or two in between life’s moments; first jobs, more jobs, townhouses, condo’s, first homes, family, dating, remodeling, more dating, first loves, boyfriends, true loves, partnerships, breakups, good health and bad, widowhood, and this being the short version even a marriage in Vermont [not to each other].
The only real constant in this story other than a thirst for wine is almost 30 years of breakfasts together between friends. Daily when we were in school and every possible Saturday since.
Our motto should have been: With a good breakfast to start off your day and great wine at the end of your day, who needs lunch or dinner!!!
