Reflecting on my love for Merlot and how much I savored its abundant flavors in my mouth, I realized I didn’t do the same for Adam’s love. As Grace, my Guardian Angel, said “Imagine allowing yourself to taste, see, touch and smell the love that is waiting for you.”
What joy it was to go to Napa and go wine tasting with Adam! I fell in love with Merlot and the abundant flavor in each tasting. From hints of oak and spice, to berry and plum, each winery offered a different tasting to tease my palate.
I was blind when I said my vows, literally. I didn’t want to wear my glasses so instead I tried putting contact lenses on the day before the BIG day, but just couldn’t get those little suckers on. I was impatient, nervous and jittery about putting anything on my eye.
Dressed in a white bridal gown, I remember sitting on a bench minutes before I walked down the aisle. I must have had a look in my eyes of innocence, the unknown, a bit of fear, nervousness, enough to alert my father. Standing in front of me, he looked down at me with my mother at his side, and said, “Come on. We’ll leave everyone and go to Vegas, just you, your mom and me. What do you say?”
