Memories- Capture Now with a Bottle of Wine

I had a great idea when I was at the liquor store a couple of weeks ago buying a bottle of red for my brothers birthday dinner. I decided to buy an extra bottle (when is that ever a bad idea right?). Okay but this extra bottle isn’t for drinking.. yet.

I ripped off a page from my notebook and wrote point form notes on what was going on with the crew. For example:

  • Brother’s 21st birthday
  • Dip’s trip
  • etc.

I then taped said paper onto the bottle. I will now keep this bottle for a very, very long time. I look forward to sharing this fine bottle of red with my friends and family when we’re older. When things have changed. It’ll be great to enjoy a bottle that I know I purchased when I was 23 years old. Imagine.. being 50 and drinking a glass of red from a bottle you bought when you were that young. Amazing.

I’m definitely not saying I’m in a rush to grow up. If I could I would freeze time right now. But time doesn’t freeze, life keeps moving. So I keep moving, trying to make the best of every situation, every moment. There’s a quote from a movie I used to love watching with my Dad as a kid,

“Life goes by pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you might miss it.” – Ferris Bueller from Ferris Beuller’s Day Off.

Great movie, if you haven’t seen it and you’re looking for a fun movie to watch one day, this is it.

That’s all for now. It’s Sunday afternoon and Toronto’s going through a snowstormย (when is it not). I think I’m going to watch a movie called, “La La Land” today- starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. After that I’ll shovel, and then hopefully head to the gym if the roads are plowed!

Till next time.. live, laugh, love
