Pig&Vine is a finalist for a wine blog award!
Sometimes you go along in life and you think, Hey, I'm doing pretty okay, I really got something good here. Just as often, you suffer the opposite. Call it Imposter's Syndrome, low confidence, an excuse to say F-it all, let's drink! - it all boils down to the essence of human existence, the reality of our smallness and the inherent insecurity that goes along with never really knowing why we're here in the first place. Existential crisis ensues, you open another bottle, probably a more expensive one than the last because F-it it's just money, you can't take it with you. Then your blog makes it to the final round for a Wine Blog Award in the Best Writing on a Wine Blog category and suddenly everything is clear. Keep doing what you're doing. And open that expensive bottle because we need to celebrate.
My hat is fitting a little tight today, but I'm also incredibly humbled to be a contender among some very talented, accomplished wine writers. My first thought is, I've got to up the ante. Scratch that, my first thought is that you need to vote for Pig&Vine ASAP. My second thought is, here's a great motivator to take what I've done and make it even better. But seriously, VOTE FOR PIG&VINE FOR BEST WRITING ON A WINE BLOG.
Love you forever,
