Best Gift EVER

The other night the doorbell rings, and it's the FedEx guy. He has a big box marked with a warning not to deliver to an intoxicated individual. Okay, so he has my attention now. I sign for it, and my kids and I all "stab it with our steely knives". Once opened, I scream with joy at seeing it's a CASE of my favorite wine, L'inizio!! I noticed a card on top addressed to me. In it was an incredibly sweet note from one of my oldest, dearest friends, Craig Colagrossi of Colagrossi Wines. He and his lovely wife Beth offered their congratulations on the book and told me to pull out the middle bottles. I did, and about fell over. He had them labeled with my book cover!! You have to understand, this was a small bottling, in great demand, and there are only a few cases left. Very few, like five or six. How do you thank someone for such a thoughtful, generous gift?




  1. Love the label. Mostly I love the thought behind it!

    In hindsight though... it is quite apt, that Craig was down to his last cases. =)

  2. Haha! Never thought of it like that. You're hilarious:)

  3. Thank you for sharing. I think its important to say thank you by selecting the perfect speaker gift!


When someone dies, (other than attending the service), I do this for the family-
