My husband and I recently moved, and we all know that the entire process can be a challenge! As newlyweds, we had boxed up a lot of our wedding gifts and waited to open and use them until we were in our new home.
A few days ago while I was unpacking a box in the kitchen, I pulled out one of the most heart-felt and exciting gifts we received! It came from a friend whom I had met in grade school. We were part of a club cheerleading team called "The Super-squad" in San Angelo, Texas.
Fast forward near 20 years later, I had no idea what I was in for when I began opening her gift to us.
On the outside it is an insulated & monogrammed tote, and on the inside the real fun began! There were 6 bottles of perfectly selected wine, each with a note tied around it's neck.
#1: "First Date Night" - Little Black Dress Wine - "Roses are red, violets are blue, throw on your little black dress and toast to a date night for two!"
#2: "First Fight" - Relax Wine - "When fights occur and tempers get hot, pour a glass and be thankful for what you've got. If you always agreed it certainly would be a bore. The marrying of a man & woman, surely there'l be more!"
#3: "First Home" - Cul De Sac wine - "The day you've dreamed of is finally here! The future that surrounds you with hope and fear. You've waited so long to finally plant roots, so toast with some wine and kick off your boots!"
#4: "First New Year" - Champagne - "On January first while sharing some kisses, drink this bottle to toast the new year as Mr and Mrs!"
#5: "First Anniversary" - Monogamy Wine - "You've been married a year, where did the time go? No longer newlyweds, now you're pros! Hope this day finds you in good health and spirit, keep saying I love you, one always needs to hear it. Now toast to this date, it's certainly not the last, and as you build your future don't forget about the past! Happy Anniversary!"
#6: "First Baby" - Barefoot Wine - "The news that a baby will soon share your life will make you a mother, not only a wife. You'll see them through good times and sometimes through bad, you're the loving mother and Nick the dearest Dad. Sadly he must drink this alone. As you sit with an empty glass, sit back and relax, nine months will quickly pass."
Now, if that isn't a great wedding gift I don't know what is! Pass the tissues please!
