Back in the day, before kids, my husband, or even much responsibility at all… my alter ego was the Tooth Fairy. It started out as a joke with some friends, which then turned into a movie short we made with a photo slideshow. It was pretty classic, and to this day I haven’t lived it down. It doesn’t bother me, I embrace it because I am proud of it. I had a blast before I settled down to start my family… now I have a blast with my family. Or once a year my bloggie sisters.
Well going back over a year ago to the 2010 BlogHer conference, I became the Wine Fairy. I am not really sure how exactly it happened as the Saturday night of the conference really was busy, loud, tiring, and influenced by the drink tickets I had kept to myself to have a good time. It was the end of the conference, I was all business until the parties went into full effect.
I had received a generous offer from the Wine Sisterhood to host a wine tasting party in my room, which kind of tanked when most of the people who had RSVP’ed for the party decided not to come. It happens, it is a busy conference, and I didn’t realize exactly how busy it would be because it was my first year attending.
With several bottles of wine, only two roommates, and tickets to some parties… I took one of the bottles in my purse and headed on my way.
But I still wanted to be able to share the different kinds and varieties of wine with the attendees of the conference. So as I went from party to party, and ball room to ball room I would stop and offer ladies some wine. If they were sitting enjoying some drinks at a table, walking with an empty glass… whatever…
Then I stumbled across the most fun table of the night, looking back I think there were 6 ladies sitting there, one of them being the hysterical Awesomely Luvvie who actually was a speaker at the conference! Mind you, to this day, I am still buddies with her and we frequently chat.
When we had such a good time downstairs, we all went back to my room and finished up the other bottles of wine I was waiting to distribute amongst the conference.
Thus they dubbed me The Wine Fairy!
A title I still wear to this day proudly! There is nothing wrong with having a little fun as an adult, especially when you have a little bit of time away from your children, even if it is for business. The Wine Fairy made me a couple amazing friends that I love dearly!
I want to thank The Wine Sisterhood again a year after the fact for the amazing wine they provided us that weekend!
The Wine Sisterhood provided the wine free of charge, but all opinions, and reviews are my 100% expressed honest opinion. I did not receive any compensation for this post.
