Big Spring Crush


On Saturday, Jo, Stacey, and I headed downtown to participate in Huntsville’s first wine festival. Big Spring Park was set up with multiple tents, all willing and ready to pour samples of the wine of your choice. Upon arrival, we were each given a commemorative wine glass which we used for our samples. photo 2-2

Along with the glass, we were given a list of all of the wines in order to keep up with our ranking of each.


Of course, all of my favorites were red. The whites are just too sweet for me these days, although, we did have a fabulous Rosé but I cannot recall the name of it.

With such a great turnout, I expect this event to become a staple in Huntsville!


July Favorites

Favorite Things PArtyDuring CMA fest in June, Crystal Light had a booth set up and were offering samples, if you liked it, you got a 1.62oz bottle to take home with you. The Strawberry Lemonade won my heart! Since then, Chris and I have both grown to love it. We go through a bottle per week. This has really helped me cut out all of the sodas that I was drinking.
