I hope it went well for you and I hope the recovery was a smooth one! Ours has been a 2 year road of just constant bad news. We got lucky when it all started though. I came much too close to not being here at all! My husband kept asking when we were going to catch a break. Out of 3 years married 2 anniversaries have been celebrated in the hospital! lol I could not have survived it all without the love of my life and I thank god for him everyday! Even the days when I love him to death but he drives me totally NUTS!! lol
Your wedding is getting so close!! You must be so excited! We managed to get permission for a couple of days in Vancouver just to reassure my father that I'm ok so just got back. I have a son there too that lives right downtown and then family in Langley. I've driven the Kokahalla so have been close to Kamloops that way, but have never actually been there. I hear it's beautiful! We were looking for wine to bring home with us for when I get permission again to be able to drink it but were sort of disappointed with what we found. I have an allergy to reds so we only looked at whites, which I know restricts us a lot.
Hope the move went well and that you're getting settled before the big day!
I was allowed only a couple of days, and even the flight I had to fight for. We had time with my son in downtown then my dad in Langley. He's almost 94 and has just been so agitated over the hospital stuff this time. It was just to put his mind at ease and let him know that I'm ok. We only looked at wine in the store where my son took us. My husband likes the Guwertz wines too, but I don't care for the spice in the flavour. I'm a Reisling girl and the sweeter the better! lol I don't like sauvignon or chardonnay at all but I found the reislings that we looked at were very much on the dry side, whereas I really like the sweeter ones, like a 4 or higher. I'm in love with icewine which here will go as high as a 24. We do the icewine festival in Niagara here every January. I'm hoping this Friday that we'll get the ok for alcohol again! lol I miss having a glass of wine! I know there will be restrictions because of meds but hopefully I can at least have a glass! I don't care if I can't have the whole bottle!!
@acw271011 My recovery was pretty good. I still have some problems breathing, but I hope it will get better in the future.
OMG! I LOVE sweeter/off-dry wines. If you like inexpensive, sweeter wines, try the moscato from Barefoot (California). Have you tried German wines? They tend to have a lot of Rieslings. We love Balthasar Ress, Dr. Loosen
When we visit the wineries in Niagara region, we fell in love with Palatine Hills' ice & dessert wines.
The Okanagan region (Kelowna) has a lot more wine than Thompson region (Kamloops). We really love sweeter wines as well and so we love Hillside Winery, The View Winery, Dirty Laundry Winery, and St. Hubertus Winery that are around Okanagan.
