Now that I am a mom, I love wine and I understand why my mom did too. Dear mom, I no longer judge you! Kids are wonderful but so is wine. Kids have this inexplicable endless energy from the moment they open up their eyes, until the moment they shut them down, and that’s when the wine comes in!
I was not a wine drinker per se until I was introduced to my two bundles of joy. They are adorable, in fact, the best kids I could have asked for, but boy, mothering is exhausting. I have a 6-year-old son, Jude, and my daughter Reagan is turning 4 next month, so as you can imagine, my life, just like my hair, is a mess most days.
Throughout the day life is not as hectic because they are in school and both my husband and I work from home, but once we pick them up, it’s as if they are on some sort of hyperactive contest.
We have started a nightly routine about a year ago, that helps us with the bedtime transition and calming them down. We always eat at the dining table, not in the kitchen or in front of a TV, we ask Google home to play classical music in the background (my kids love Opera these days) and I always have one glass of wine with dinner. I was recently introduced to Butter Chardonnay and oh my, this is a smooth, easy to love, everyday wine, and best Chardonnay under $20. JaM Cellars makes three easy-to-love, everyday California wines Butter Chardonnay, JaM Cabernet and Toast Sparkling. So far, I have only tried the Chardonnay and I have become a loyal customer.
Last night we had dinner outside, and I kept making saying that I love Butter with my seafood. [Yes, I am a dork]. Chilled Butter with crab legs and grilled red peppers, was enough to put my insanity aside and enjoy dinner. It’s the little things that make life Butter 😉
Mother’s Day is coming up and if you want your mom to chill, buy her a bottle of Butter, prepare her favorite meal, and set-up the table as a “Thank you for being the best mom ever!“.
If you are not creative and don’t know how to prepare a tablescape don’t worry, something as simple as a garden flower on her plate will be guaranteed to make her smile. And as you can tell by our dining room wall, we have become true wine lovers.
