Today, August 18th 2005, Vivi’s Wine Journal turns 1 year old! What started out as a way to just talk about wine topics and write about wine and wine related experiences in a way that would help my friends understand why Kelly and I love the wine life so much has turned into a community site with a steady flow of visitors from all corners of the world. This has been a great experience for both of us and really been more rewarding then I had ever imagined.
In life, the ideal “job” is one that can combine something you do with something you enjoy. Vivi’s is definitely “work” but it doesn’t feel that way so much. Kelly and I both have enjoyed the last year doling out and receiving advice where we could, meeting new people, and learning about wine while we do things to expand on Vivi’s content for the community. Now that I have a taste of what it means to be doing something purely for the enjoyment and art of it the last step is to figure out how to get that same experience out of a career – wouldn’t that be cool.
In the mean time we’ll continue to get our fix from bringing our wine life experiences to you through Vivi’s. Here’s to taking the time out to Enjoy the Wine Life!
