Talking Golf and Wine – Two Things I Love as Much as Crafting!May 11, 2017 | FILED UNDER: Uncategorized

Tee off this season with Concha y Toro Gran Reserva.
|Golf and wine, it doesn’t get much better than that!|
I owe my love of golf to my dad. He spent years working on golf courses when I was a kid and has always been a darn good golfer. I’ve seen him play an entire round with just a 7 iron and a putter…while wearing cowboy boots. That takes skill! Not only is my dad a great golfer, he’s a great teacher. You need a lot of patience to teach a 15 year old girl how to golf, and my dad was the best.
|I got the ball within 10 feet of the pin on this Par 3, and then 3 putted. Typical!|
I have many fond memories of playing golf with my dad, often we were some of the only players on a quiet golf course in Nebraska, trying to fit in 9 holes before the sun went down. There is something so peaceful about being on the golf course first thing in the morning, or at the very end of the day.
|Being outdoors is one of my favorite parts of golf|
|Love playing golf with this guy!|
Once Stella and Hazel were born, it was a good five years before I stepped on the golf course again, but this year both were in school full time and it gave me the chance to get back into playing. I found a willing partner in my friend Heather, who is just learning the game and already picking it up quickly. We’ve been heading to our local course every couple weeks after dropping the kids off at school to take advantage of the best deal ever: play 9 holes and get a free coffee and breakfast taco. Sold!
