Happy Half Decade Wannabe Wino!

Five years ago today (or perhaps it was a few days before that since it took me a couple days to get this whole blogging thing set up and then maybe a few more to decide I actually wanted to push “publish” on the blog) I said to Mr. Wannabe Wino: “Hey, I think I’m going to start a wine blog.” At the time I think he probably said something to the effect of “Mmm hmm, sounds good.” He probably thought it was just another hobby I’d take up and abandon shortly thereafter, like jigsaw puzzles or calligraphy. Lo and behold, here I am, 5 years later, and not only going strong, but with Mr. Wannabe Wino actually joining in the fun!

This past year has been necessarily slower on the blog as I adjusted to having a baby, then going back and being a working mom. Finding a balance there, and the time to not only taste the wine, but write about it here on the blog, without taking time away from my family has been a challenge. I hope to work more on that in the coming year. Even so, I managed to attend the 4th annual Wine Blogger Conference held here in my home state after taking the previous year off since I was all pregnant and such. I have plans to attend the upcoming 2010 Conference in 2012 with Mr. Wannabe Wino in tow!

Thanks to all of you who have been with me from the beginning, to those who have joined along the way, and those who have just found me. 1372 posts later, I appreciate each and every one of you. Cheers!
