I just talked to Desiree to see how she's doing, as I have every day since since Nan passed away. She had just returned home from the grocery store. She told me she needed to buy wine for a Halloween gathering, and she was standing in front of the wine display feeling sad because she would always ask Nan - the gourmand - for a recommendation for wine or cheese.
She was scanning the prices and saw one for $10 or so. Deciding to get it based on price, she looked at the label.
Nanette wore glasses and was the middle sister. Deedee said it felt like a little "hello" from her sister, and that's what it feels like to me too. (I am terribly practical in a lot of ways; I think astrology is hogwash, but I do like the idea of the people we love staying around as spirits or energy, giving us little signs.)
I looked up Middle Sister wines, and it turns out that it was launched this summer at a party for Maggie Mason's new shopping blog, Mighty Haus - a party that I was at! (The photo above is one of Maggie's)
