It’s that time of the year when everyone updates their Facebook status with words of gratitude. Family, pets, jobs — they all make the list. But people rarely mention the little things that make life so wonderful. Maybe they’re worried people will call them vain or materialistic? But the truth is there are many small things to be thankful for every day. I’m thankful for leggings that make eating an abundance of turkey comfortable, online Black Friday sales that keep me from store-wide stampedes, and and wine. I know, nobody needs reasons to be thankful for wine, but I promise you, there are quite a few.
Wine is such a happy drink, right? Beer is great for wing night at my favorite bar or when my friends and I are dominating trivia. Liquor is good when you’re ready to get turned up and set the night on fire. But wine — wine is that perfect balance. It’s great when you’re out with friends, home alone, or sitting through a large family get together that’s full of judgement. It’s easy to share, sip, and love. With these 11 reasons to be thankful for wine, I guarantee you’ll find one you can relate to and maybe you’ll update your own thankful status accordingly.
