Vino & Views

You know the film "Leaving Las Vegas", where Nicolas Cage heads to Vegas to drink himself to death? Well that's what I always call it when I look down and see a fruit fly struggling for life in my nice glass of wine.
^the via Instagram shot of the night

"We got a 'Leaving' Las Vegas'er!' in my grapes!" I'll shout at Jay as I begin the process of fishing it out with my spoon. Sometimes this happens when we're sipping on cheap wine and I genuinely feel for the little guy. Going out on a glass of Charles Shaw? That's no way to do it! But when it's a nice, smooth, expensive glass of wine I, first, get annoyed when a fruit fly enters it but then immediately think: Yup, I get it. Cause good wine is an art form. Especially when it's complemented with a beautiful view. Summer air. And your husband while you're on a mini-vacay, which happened in Ashland recently when we stepped away from everyone and had a little mini date at Martino's.
^Enjoying Italian in Ashland - I am Italian & Jay is from Ashland- this covers a lot of bases, amirite?
^That sky though [insert emoji of hands making a frame]
^Discussing life, love & future hopes & dreams (aka talking about the Kardashians)
^Good wine on a summer night.
^The world is a beautiful place.
So that was a lot of words and pictures to say "we ate at a restaurant" basically. ha!

Happy Monday, yo!

lol never thought about calling a fruit fly in wine that. A fruit fly probably can act better than nic cage these days.

The world is a beautiful place indeed. Thank you for sharing.

Lol looks like a fabulous place!! You cracked me up with your fruit fly talk. You know you've got a good heart when you can pity a fruit fly. :)

I will look at my drink two or three times in a row, to make sure that there aren't bugs.

You all have the best time; even if you are just "eating out." The sunset glows behind you all make for great pics--thanks for sharing, Caitlin.

Your mini date sounds perfect, and YES to wine! And those sunset pics are gorgeous :)

I laughed so dang hard when I read your Leaving Las Vegas comment. I may have to use that next time because it's just TOO good.
