Poet Mariya Koleva’s prompt at WordsmithStudio.org and Bolton Carley’s Candy-Coated Love-Fest have me remembering my late husband and our fun times together. Since before we married, we loved trying new foods. Doug enjoyed preparing food more than I, and he enjoyed a glass of wine or beer when he cooked. He transitioned 6 years ago. Doug, I’m thinking of you as Valentine’s Day approaches.
You enjoyed spiced wine.
So did I.
We called it Glogg.
Our first sip was at
the Old Sautee Store in Helen.
The ladies kept it warm
We bought their Scandinavian spice
to make our own mulled wine
Atlanta wasn’t an international city then,
but you and I traveled the world
with our taste buds.
