Literary Libations: Crispin & Birthdays

Share it Please

If you were to look for me at 4:30 a.m. on Friday morning, you would have found me in line at the local Apple retail store. It's a long story, but the short version is that Friday was Hubby's 25th birthday and he really, really wanted the brand new iPhone 6. Unable to get out of a work shift that started at 6:30 a.m., there was no way he would make it through the line. I volunteered to be the early morning line stander. After early morning lines, calling every T-Mobile location in the city, and rushing off right after work, we actually got him an iPhone 6 on the day of release. I have never appreciated a phone so much! Afterward we relaxed with dinner at Buca di Beppo with my in-laws and properly celebrated Hubby becoming a quarter of a century old! I'm sure you can tell, but we are both truly exhausted in that picture.

We spent the rest of the weekend recovering from the crazy Friday and I have to admit, with a long week and a crazy weekend, I haven't done any reading! I'm hoping to change that this week. While in recovery mode I've been enjoying a very simple and refreshing drink, Crispin's Original Apple Cider. I'm a bit of a cider addict in the fall, it always feels so seasonal! Lately Crispin has definitely been my go-to brand, I find them at Whole Foods in a four pack. As the description reads, they are "fruit forward, with a fresh, crunchy appley nose and a deliciously refreshing, crisp mouth feel." Oh, and they are certified gluten free for any of you with a gluten allergy! What's your favorite cider?
