Bottled Dreams

"When we are dreaming alone it is only a dream. When we are dreaming with others, it is the beginning of reality." ~ Dom Helder Camara

J and I have been talking a lot lately about our dreams and hopes for the future. About where we'll be in, say, five years or ten years or even 50. One of J's dreams? Is to start a winery. It's an ambitious dream for sure. But how freaking cool would that be? So, we've been looking at land, and talking about what kind of wine we'd make and how we'd harvest the vineyard.

Sure, maybe it's a pipedream. But, I believe it's those dreams that create passion in life ... and make wearing a suit and tie to work more bearable. Because at the end of the day? It's not what you do while you're here, it's what you leave behind when you're gone.

Hence the load of wine-making supplies J found on Craig's List that lined our entry for awhile.

All of those boxes? Are filled with old wine bottles.

And, we now have two batches of wine "brewing" {is that the right term?} upstairs ~ musky dine and plum. Who knows, maybe it's the start of something beautiful...

I'm not much of a wine drinker but I sure could think of some fun projects I could do with you lovely wine bottles ;) I'm a new follower.

LOL, Lindy ~ I thought the same thing when I saw that beautiful green bottle!

I think that sounds wonderful! If I had wine brewing upstairs, I would be in major trouble ;)
