Time to pop that cork and pour a glass of wine because it’s the lonnnnnng weekend 🍾 Stay home, stay safe and relax this long weekend! Cheers! 🥂✨ I would usually be driving up the coast to visit my family for Easter and spending all day everyday at the beach 🌴☀️🍹 but instead I will be staying home safe with my partner and puppy who of course aren’t bad company 😉💖🐶 👇🏼What are your plans for the long weekend? 👇🏼

The Sonoma Reserve, one that my mother in law raves over. I must say, she is right. @closdubois began offering the Sonoma Reserve in the 90s as a way to show off smaller appellations. I’m glad they did. . The colour on this thing is beyond dark purple. It’s almost like starring into space it’s so dark. The nose has this almost cigar-like aroma to it along with burnt oak and blackberry. Once this thing hits your tongue you get this combo of flavours that is very over powering, and beyond unique. Espresso shines through the maze of flavours. Surprisingly, after the note of black cherry you get a rush of vanilla and cola. With very active tannins the structure of this wine is of the highest quality. But man, that COLOUR!!! .

My son just creases me!!!!😂😂😂🍾 Pop the Cock or the ‘Cork’? 🤣😊😊POP the what now? 🤣🤣🤣 #popthecork #hetried #f1 #champagne #shake

OMG. Have you seen this?!🍾 . . So I'm researching backdrop ideas on Pinterest and this pin stopped me in my tracks. How amazing is this champagne vending machine at @provisional_sd (via @blisslundgren blog) . . Apparently you go to the front desk to buy a gold coin, pop it in the vending machine & choose your bubbly! Hands up who wants a machine like this at their wedding? Or in their home?! Or both?!! 🥂 . . . #champendry #champagnetime #champagnerose #moetmoment #moëtchandon #pinkbubbly #champagnebubbles #champagnevendingmachine #celebrationbubbles #popthecork #fizz

Happy Assistant Principals Week!!!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ “Leaders must either invest a reasonable amount of time attending to fears and feelings, or squander an unreasonable amount of time trying to manage ineffective and unproductive behavior.” -Dr. Brene’ Brown⁣ ⁣ When I not learning about wine, I’m developing leaders in education. Assistant principals are unsung heroes of schools and districts. You HAVE to have a heart for this work. The hours are long, and the asks are endless as you put your students and staff above everything else. School leadership is not for the faint at heart. Working countless hours as on discipline, ARDs, PLCs, operations, observations, duties (and the list goes one) they are the right hand to principals, and don’t hear “THANK YOU” enough!⁣ ⁣ So I wanted to take the time to tell every AP and Dean out there: thank you and you are appreciated. If I were to leave you with one jewel based on my work with principals it’d be this: Don’t fill vases, light fires in people! Be vulnerable, share your story and remember your WHY on days when you feel like you don’t have the capacity to pour into others. ⁣ ⁣ Shout out to two of my favorite school leaders: @localicelebrity and @the_tonimontana 🖤💛❤️ ⁣ #Education #Educators #Principal #PrincipalLife #iCoachPrincipals #AssistantPrincipals #SchoolAdminstrators #Wine #PopTheCork #WineInfluencer

Did you know that 49 people die each year from opening a bottle of bubbly wrong? 🍾 Now everyone knows I love the sound of a cork popping, but technically, you shouldn’t actually hear that sound. To open a bottle the “right” way... •hold the bottle at 45 degree angle •hold the base of the bottle in one hand •remove the cage or don’t....personal choice but some people say it gives you a better grip •turn the base of the bottle while holding the cork with your other hand •when you hear the “hiss” of the cork...it’s time to CELEBRATE! Now it’s time to practice...as many bottles as it takes to get it right!😉

Double bottle cracking tonight. Finally opening the discontinued 10 year to compare with the current 12 year distillery bottlings from @tobermorydistillery .

A big shoutout to @starlight_distillery for sending me these limited release expressions from their Carl T. Huber’s lineup. Starlight Distillery is producing some really great standard Bourbons and ryes that are 4-5+ years old, so I’m excited to see what they’ve done by taking those standards and doing a secondary finish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the left is their 90° Bourbon that is a blend of 4-6 year old barrels that are then finished for 6-8 months in Oloroso sherry barrels imported from Spain. They describe the sherry barrels as imparting notes of dried cherry and orange citrus to their already flavorful flagship Bourbon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the right is their 96° small batch Bourbon that is aged 4 years in new, charred American Oak and then transferred to unused Seguin Moureau vanilla toast barrels to age for another 8 months. They describe the process as providing intense oak notes, enhanced vanilla, and mellowed rye spiciness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I cannot wait to get into these. Stay tuned for more to come on these expressions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to learn more about Starlight Distillery check out the latest Podcast from @bourbonlens that was released today. It’s a great listen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you have a favorite secondary finished craft Bourbon or rye? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #urbanbourbonist #urbanbourbon #starlightdistillery #craftwhiskey #craftbourbon #smallbusiness #craftdistillery #bourbonwhiskey #indianabourbon #bourbonenthusiast #bourbonfinds #whiskeyconsensus #whiskeycollection #bourboncollection #limitedrelease #popthecork #bottlepopping #bottlephotography #bourbonhunting #bourbonlover #dramoftheday #dailydram #thebourbonleague #bottlecollection #bourbontrail #bourboncountry #pappyvanwinkle #americanwhiskey #whiskeydrinker #drinkbourbon

Has anyone else found it hard to post these pretty scenes? I have SO many pretty things to show you these days, but it just felt somehow wrong to put it out into the world. Rationally, I know that doesn’t make sense! I mean, even if some weddings were postponed recently (you know who you are. I am sending you love), weddings are still a most beautiful and real part of our world that will happen again soon - even if it’s later than originally planned. And honestly, looking at something pretty right now is a nice distraction. So, enjoy this beautiful distraction from a recent shoot.⁣ ⁣ And for fun, listen to these podcasts (not wedding related at all):⁣ The Daily from @nytimes on Sunday, April 5th. It’s about the crazy saga of the mail order sea monkeys. ⁣ Reply All (@replyall) episode #158: The Case of the Missing Hit. It was completely entertaining and wonderful. ⁣ ⁣ The team behind this photo:⁣ Flowers - Flowers by Kristine (@flowersbykristine)⁣ Calligraphy - Apricity Ink (@apricity_ink)⁣ Jewelry - Flora Gems (@flora_gems)⁣ Bridal Gown - Elite Bridal (@elitebridalchampaign)⁣ Venue - Lincolnshire Fields Country Club (@lfcc_1976)⁣ Rentals - Herriott’s Rents, Tents, & Events (@herriottsrte) & Elite Entertainment (@eliteentertainmentcu)⁣ Photographer - Kara Evans Photographer (@karaevansphotog)⁣#escortcarddisplay #placecards #escortcards #champagneescortcards #champagnedisplay #blushwedding #findyourseat #seatingplan #weddingdetails #peachwedding #blushandpeachwedding #illinoiswedding #champaignwedding #illinoiscalligrapher #champaigncalligrapher #weddinginspo #champagnetoast #weddingplacecards #uniqueweddings #uniqueescortcards #caratsandcake #cocktailhour #popthecork

Am I the only one who judges a nail salon based off of services, vibe AND whether or not they offer wine??? ⁣ ⁣ Don’t mind me. . . I’m just reminiscing on my self-care days because now I’m about to have to do my own pedicure! ⁣ ⁣ *Little known fact about me: I had a cosmetology license for years, so it’s all good over here. 😉🥂 #Wine #WineBlogger #Bubbles #PopTheCork #HoustonBlogger #Houston #SelfCare #SpaDay #HeightsHouston #StayHome

This thing hits you like a Mike Tyson first round TKO. It literally feels like you’ve been punched in the mouth when you first try this incredible red blend. Some wines you never ever forget the first time you have it, this is one of those wines. Just an absolute nails wine by @prisonerwineco. Approach with caution. . Ok, so where do we begin? This guy is a heavy hitter and that’s exactly how the mouthfeel is. HEAVY! We’re talking raspberry, blackberry, plum, essentially all the dark fruits. This is a dry wine with gripping tannins. The spices you pick up will range from vanilla and licorice to pepper and cloves. It’s a serious wine that’s a hell of a lot of fun to drink. This blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet, Syrah, Petit Syrah & Charbono will make you beg your keeper for more! .

How many corks will be popped when we all get through this 🥂🍾 I’m saving this one till then 💕💕 These gorgeous little bottle plaques add that little extra touch to a gift and can be hung in the home 🏠 afterwards 💖 #serenitykeepsakes #handmadewithlove #madewithlove #gifts #champagne #prosecco #gin #vodka #drinks #cheers #keepsakegift #keepsake #plaque #embellished #glitter #sparkle #popthecork

No time like the present. #popthecork

I truly am a sucker for Chilean Cabernet. I can’t help myself. The quality of wine is exceptional and the value is through the roof. You may recognize this label from being similar to it’s big sister Purple Angel. The @monteswinesus make other wines that are excellent and not as hard on the wallet, this bottle of Cabernet is no exception. . If you like full bodied, dry, tannic Cabernet, then this is the one for you. Right off the hop you’re getting notes of tobacco and oak. But don’t get confused, it’s meant to throw you off the path. This Cabernet is pure, plum, blackberry, and cherries, with a wicked peppery finish that lasts. Ideal wine for a juicy piece of beefy smoked meats. .

Once You Pop That Cork... The Fun Don't Stop! 🥳 TGIF Everyone!
