For our 10 year wedding anniversary, we went to Napa. Things were busy at home, and a long weekend was all we had time for, but we wanted to do something we loved – so we headed to Napa for some wine tasting.
Generally, that implies that you don’t bring wine with you, but my wife has gotten used to the idea that I’ll bring wine just about anywhere we travel, tucked into my luggage.
For this occasion, I brought along a bottle of 1990 Krug. We had an amazing dinner at Farm, the restaurant at The Carneros Inn, starting with oysters on the half shell and this fabulous bottle of bubbly.
I’ll never forget a moment 10 years prior, after a year plus of intense wedding planning, just after our ceremony, when we were in the car on the way from the church to the reception. My glowing new wife turned to me, sighed with a mixture of relief and – anxiety? – and said, “So, what now?”
I told her not to worry, the best was yet to come. Truly, it really does just keep getting better. This year we’re celebrating 12 years with a trip to Bordeaux – not sure how we’ll top that one though!
