A Very Special Day =)

So I am still lost in the crazy final weeks of the academic portion of my Masters In Wine Business Program. You might be able to find me at the bottom of a pile of papers or perhaps even looking like a zombie staring at my computer screen. In any case, I will be back to my Ceci Sipper self very soon, just gotta knock out these last few classes … then it is on to thesis/internship time!! (Details coming soon!)

And don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten that I still have a couple more posts to share with y’all on the shenanigans that went down at the London Wine Fair, but today is a special pause in the wine fair programming …

You see, it is the 3 year anniversary for Frenchie le Boyfriend and I!
Three years ago today, I met one of the bestest friends of my life, a guy that makes me laugh insanely and that melts my heart every day! Three years ago today, I found my other half!

For my surprise to him for our anniversary, I took him for a picnic overlooking some of the most famous vineyard sites in Burgundy, on this hills above Vougeot and Vosne-Romanee!! His surprise for me will be on Friday! I can’t wait to see what he has planned!

I hate to blog and run, but I have some final assignments to finish up. I will leave you with some pictures of our picnic today and some pictures of us from the three years we have been together. As much as I love this masters I am doing, the one reason I am glad the classes part will be finished as so I can get back to blogging!! I CAN’T WAIT!! I miss y’all out there in Vinous Land!! The Ceci Sipper shall be back soon!! Miss you guys!

So suave!


Simply heavenly!

Picnic time!

Overlooking some of the most ‘spensive wines in Burgundy!

GASP! We drank Champagne instead of Burgundy ?!?! (Gimme a break =P An anniversary calls for some bubbly!! That and Romanee-Conti was a little out of my price range, hahaha) And a special shout out to Champagne Aspasie for making out anniversary so special! An amazing Blanc de Blancs champagne for an amazing celebration!

My doggy, loving the view of the vineyards just like her mommy!

Too Cute!


I love you Frenchie!! Three years of endless smiles, laughs, goodtimes, and a whole lotta lovin’!

Definitely made for each other!

Visiting Frenchie on his home turf! (This was my first day in France ever!)

We are gangsta!

And we shine up quite nicely too!

Sharing some American culture!
