Looking back on the days of meeting friends for happy hour, after a long week of work. Kicking off the weekend with cocktails and appetizers doesn’t have to stop, in fact some may need more happy hours through out the week.

While drinking responsibly, we get through the work week with a glass of wine here and there. But what we really look forward to is the weekend. Saturdays and/or Sundays we like to try something fun. I recently cleaned and organized our backyard. When the whether is nice, we take our drinks, and a portable speaker out and enjoy the sun.

Favorite Wine at the moment is Reggiano Lambrusco, a soft red wine. It can be found at Trader Joe’s in either the red wine or the champagne section.
