It’s official party people — Summer is here! With the kickoff of the longest day of the year happening yesterday a celebration was due. You see, we recently tore out an area of our yard to put in a firepit surrounded by adirondack chairs and tiki torches. A little oasis so to speak down by the water. And while it has been fun to look at, we had never used that space – until now. If you have been around this blog for any amount of time you should know that I love poppin’ bottles. Somebody’s birthday – pop a bottle. Somebody’s buying a house – pop a bottle. Somebody’s having a baby – pop a bottle. You get the point. Needless to say, the official arrival of Summer was definitely bottle poppin’ worthy. And so that’s what we did. I gathered up my favorite Gloria Ferrer bubbly, loaded up a little basket with all of the S’mores fixings (including the life changing ingredient, peanut butter) and headed down to our little fire oasis for an evening of Summer fun.
It was one of those great nights where we had spent all day out on the water, still in our bathing suits, no make-up on, the air was warm, our neighbors were playing the greatest music of all time in their garage next door, and we had nothing else on our agenda but to sip our sparkling wine and eat our chocolate peanut butter s’mores until our hearts were content. Which for me takes a lot. Working on that one…
I love Gloria Ferrer wines not just for the flavor (don’t take my word for it – their wines have earned over 400 gold medals and 50 90+ scores in the last 5 years) but because of its social sparkabilities. I may have just made up that word, but I love it so we are going with it. Gloria Ferrer wines are the perfect match for any occasion thanks to their elegant and fun look and flavor.
As an extra bit of Summer Fun, Gloria Ferrer is challenging you to post your best Summer pictures of you enjoying your GF bubbly.
