Ouch…last night, I visited my good friends KatieBird and her husband Sean. They are lucky enough just to have bought their first house in Healdsburg just before Christmas. I’d brought them a house warming present from the Yukon–an ulu knife for their kitchen. On second thoughts, I wasn’t sure they would like it but it is very practical for chopping and dicing. They assured me it was a lovely addition. I’m not sure I’m convinced. Although, a saving grace is that I have always wanted an ulu knife for my kitchen. If they don’t like it, I can re-gift it to myself! KateBird and Sean are renewing their vows on the southern-most tip of New Zealand on 05 February. I was hoping to be there, but alas–I ‘m sorry, I just can’t.
Last night, we were celebrating a few things: the New Year, their wedding vows, their new house, Sean’s promotion to assistant winemaker!! Congratulations Sean. Clos du Bois couldn’t made a wiser choice. You guys deserve it.
Sean, Katie–Here’s to your new house and new position and new life. Happy 2007!
