Watercolor Wednesday | Wine & Knitting.

...I was sure I must've blogged about this at some point, but I just did a quick search and didn't find it. Maybe it was all just for "wordless" Wednesday?

In any event, my sister and I have been meeting every Wednesday evening for years. We open a bottle of wine, fix a light snack (popcorn is a sure favorite, but if Katie joins us we can manage a full vegetable plate and hummus) ... and knit... and talk. Until the wine or the talk runs out (the wine nearly always wins that race).

I get choked up just typing this when I think about the joys and tears we've shared over all that time. It was a highlight of my mama-life when Katie started to join us last fall. Chalk up another one for knitting (and for wine!) - it's cross-generational.

We mostly rotate houses. This week was Karen's turn to host (which meant just two of us - Katie isn't venturing out that far this late in the day with Charlie just yet). Karen's the green thumb in our generation and I love the view onto her deck with pots full of living things! She opened a delicious grenache/syrah/mourvedre blend. and popped corn. and we talked. about everything. and about nothing. Really...the stuff of life and especially (these days for all three of us!) motherhood.

Special, treasured times. for which I am beyond grateful. xo!


  1. I love that photo; it belongs in a frame. What a lovely memory for you and your sister. Thanks for sharing.

  2. That sounds like a great way to spend an evening during the middle of your week. It makes me wish I had a sister!

  3. You are so right--treasured times to be sure!


  4. Love this! How wonderful. None of my sisters have ever lived close enough that we could so frequently meet, but we had a long tradition of "Sister Weekends." So much fun -- and great memories.

  5. How fun to have your family so close and you can share so much. My family is scattered (in more ways than one). I still love your waterlogged photos and have app envy. :)

  6. I love this post! I'm 14 years older than my sister and in recent years we have become very close and cherish our "sister" time together. Love your water color photo!

  7. Wine, knitting and girl time-doesn't get much better.


Thanks for the feedback!
