broken, but not defeated

You may recall my Christmas fail picture I posted on Facebook on, well, Christmas.  If not, here's a refresher.  My beloved Lolita piano wine glass:






You may even recall spying it in the following picture.  Cheryl, you know who you are.



Yes, I used it.  I do that with my wine glasses.  Even my favorite ones that I don't want broken.

Philly glued it back together for me, and it fell apart again.  I was a picture of desolation.  The glass is discontinued, so it's no longer available.

Unless you find one on ebay.  

Or, dare I whisper it....two....

Let me just say that Philly is rocking the Best Husband Ever title.

Because now I've got an awesome pair.  Of glasses.




He was very concerned they might not be perfect.  I'm thinking one piece is better than five any day of the week.

Unless you're talking pizza.  Or brownies.  Or pie.



So, what did I do to celebrate?  I poured myself some Pinot Grigio, of course.  I've got a spare glass now.

Besides, life is far too short not to enjoy a few of my favorite things.



Now go forth, and use something you've been saving for a special occasion.  Today is that day.  And you're worth it.

In other news, my mom is in the hospital.  My love for her is beyond words.  I believe in the power of prayer.  Anything you have to send her way will be appreciated beyond belief.



Love,
andi

  2. If you kept a bowl of sand handy to prop it in, I am pretty sure you could still use that glass. Good thoughts for your mom! (Eddie's Bud bud) <3
