Alex brought the bottle back for me as a gift when we traveled to Spain earlier this year. I wanted to save it for a special occasion, and tonight is the perfect dinner to uncork and share.

He and Penny have invited Rob and I to dinner, at their new condo, just having moved into it a few days ago. Spaghetti is on the menu.

I'm still in shock that he has left home. Officially I am an empty-nester.

Of course I'll see him regularly, but his room is empty now. There is no more guitar leaning against the couch, waiting to be picked up and strummed.

A new phase, an adventure for us both.

I have no doubt he will fare well, he's ready.

My son, my sun.

Is it too early to book Alex's Xroom for Winter Solstice Wine Tasting ;-) ! Love the Foodie Dream post of London and France. Are you there now? Where are you brown cow? I look forward to daily postings while you are away en Europe! Bizes, Carô
