Reflection, Appreciation, and a Little Wine

Hello everyone!  I hope that you had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend.  I spent mine in New Hampshire with my family.  I don't know what it is about my family, but for some reason, even when I take a few extra days, it still just doesn't seem like enough time with them.  Anybody else have that struggle?  I hope so!  I feel really lucky a lot of the time to genuinely enjoy their company; mom, dad, brother, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins.  It is so great and fun to watch this family get bigger too, as all us kids find our significant others.  My brother got engaged this past April to a girl who I just adore (we found her wedding dress last week!  I cried.).  I am just thankful for this life and the people that I get to enjoy it with on a daily basis. 

It's September 11th again.  These years just seem to pass faster and faster.  I cannot believe that it has been 14 years since the WTC tragedy.  I still remember where I was and what I was doing when the first plane crashed.  I do not remember what I did yesterday, but I remember exactly where I was sitting, where I was going, and who was sitting next to me on that day 14 years ago.  Everyone I have talked to is the same way.  They remember everything about that day.   

When I was in college, I met a guy who became a best buddy.  He is from New York, and he is 1 of 4 boys (the youngest), the other 3 were (2 still are) involved with the FDNY (one was Rescue 1, one was 288 Hazmat, and one was a FDNY Paramedic).  While I was in college (and after college, when I moved up to NYC), this family became like my second family.  All three of these brothers were there this day; called to search, rescue, and save.  Every September 11th, I am thankful for them, people like them who put their lives on the line every day (all service men and women), and the people like them who did not escape with their lives.  My friend always says, "let us live lives that make worthwhile the price our fallen heroes have paid".  Life is short, do what you love, be with people you love, cut out the things that don't make you a better person.  Sometimes, you lose sight of what and who is important.  September 11th has a way of making you feel grateful for everything you have.  So, as summer comes to a close, enjoy the last bit of warmth with your friends and family.

Since we can pretty much smell fall in the air, you wine lovers can probably guess that we have been very busy with harvest.  We have finished harvesting our white grapes (as of Wednesday of this week) which is a good 3+ weeks earlier than we finished harvesting our whites last year.  The fruit is looking great (and tasting even better) thanks to Karamoor's vineyard team!  I have been uploading pictures on our Facebook, so if you haven't checked them out yet, make sure you do!  We should be harvesting our first Merlot next week, which is going to have a very interesting story.  So, stay tuned for that...it is going to be a first for us!  Have a great weekend, and...until next time.

Alsie -- I just heard about your blogs from your brother. I have read the last four and will read the rest. Enjoyed immensely. Informative and funny. And no way you walked 1/4 mile to the bus -- maybe 400 yards! Looking forward to your next writing. Also love the recipes. Don't give away my linguine and clam recipe!
