Visiting friends and munchkins

Good morning everyone,
Happy Wednesday, or as I like to call it "Wine down Wednesday" What have I been up to since my last post? Monday I drove up to Greenville,Sc. My girlfriend from California is now living there with her husband and little boy. We have both been in serious need of "friend" time and with it only being 82 miles from me I knew it was time to get up there and visit her. It only took me 1 hour and 20 minutes. I love it that the speed limit is 70 WooHoo my lead foot loves it too Haha!

We decided to head to Downtown. There is a moonshine distillery there so we decided that we would go tasting. Dark Corner Distillery We were able to taste up to six. I only tried four.

Moonshine, which will certainly put hair on your chest!! A true American settler’s style whiskey, our original is made with corn, red wheat, barley and rye. Artfully distilled in a handmade 80-gallon copper pot still, and bottled at 100 proof, our moonshine is ultra-smooth and sure to become your favorite sipping whiskey.

Butterscotch Our butterscotch shine is a sweet marriage of rich candy and corn whiskey. Smooth and decadent, it’s meant to be enjoyed right ’til the last drop. Treat yourself and try it over ice cream or in coffee. this one was pretty darn good but a little to sweet for me.

Apple-achian Shine,is a contemporary twist on a traditional “apple pie” moonshine recipe. It’s a delicate blend of traditional corn whiskey with fresh apple flavor and hints of rich maple syrup and lime – a taste of mountain heritage in every sip! it reminded me of an apple pie with a kick and the last one I tried was

HotMam a is a fiery blend of 111 proof whiskey, natural cinnamon and chipotle peppers, lightly sweetened with organic agave nectar. This whiskey boasts a smoky heat and savory cinnamon finish.

After our tasting we decided to walk off the "shine" at Falls Park This was a true surprise for me, it was like a hidden oasis in the middle of Downtown. Beautiful walking paths, stone steps. This place is pretty in the winter, but I can not wait to go visit in the spring and summer.

This is the Liberty Bridge that crosses over the river, we saw a family getting their family photo taken down by the stone stairs and what a beautiful place to do it.

Visiting with my friends two year old "munchkin" as we refer to him was the highlight of the short trip. He is a talker and always laughing, unless it's bath time LOL But I had so mush fun being a "kid" with him :)He is a cutie!

I am home now and today the weather is beautiful. Warm and sunny, perfect to walk the dogs and then sit outside and stitch. So friends as always thank you for stopping by I enjoy your "company"
Have a great day!!!!
